Insiders say the second season is revolving around two feuding couples. Insiders add that no official Season 2 greenlight has been given.

The roles Isaac and Mulligan would be playing were rumored to be for Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, but that ultimately did not come to fruition.

Isaac has had success as of late on the limited series front with his performance in HBO’s Scenes From a Marriage, which earned him an Emmy nomination. Since then he has finished production on Julian Schnabel’s Hand of Dante, starring opposite Jason Momoa. He is currently shooting Guillermo del Toro’s Frankenstein movie in which he plays Doctor Frankenstein.

Mulligan, a three-time Oscar nominee, is coming off her own critically acclaimed performance having co-starred in Maestro opposite Bradley Cooper.

Isaac is repped by WME. Mulligan is repped by Julian Belfrage Associates and CAA.
