The Empress is a superb historical drama with nearly a psychological undertone. Contrary to many historical dramas, this one is more on historical figures than actual historical events. You must be curious if season 2 has been renewed after watching season 1 and the cliffhanger it closes on. What we do know is this:

The Empress Season 1 Ending Explained
The concluding hour of The Empress‘ first season included a probable Russian conflict. Franz was seen evaluating his options: he did not want to go to war, but he believed he had to safeguard his country's frontiers.
As a result, he felt obligated to deploy his army into possible war, which convinced the bank not to fund his dream railway project. Sissi's mother-in-law, Archduchess Sophie, persuaded her to visit the commoners to win public trust.
Archduke Ludwig, Franz's brother, and countess Esterhazy accompanied Sissi to the iron foundry to see the workers. Sissi was astonished by the scenario and begged to go into the foundry despite countess Esterhazy‘s objections.
Sissi saw a girl without shoes inside and offered hers. Countess Esterhazy carried the empress when she wished to go barefoot. An irate throng then formed, forcing all three characters to flee. Sissi started drinking regularly and withdrawing from her husband, so Sophie ordered her to change or leave royal life.
The empress took some time to decide, during which she found she was pregnant, and eventually chose to follow royal rules… until Franz criticized her. Sissi abandoned her title after realizing her husband no longer loved her.
Sissi was going to leave when she saw a large mob blocking the royal gates to protest the monarch. Unfazed, Sissi asked the guards to open the door, stepped outside, and declared she was pregnant. Franz heard the news, and the episode concluded.
Expected Premiere Date of the Empress
The Empress just made its debut last week, so it's unfortunately way too soon to determine whether or not it did well enough to warrant a second season (September 29).
Its return is based on ratings, just like the majority of Netflix programmes. So sit back and pick “next episode” if you want to see more.

Cast and Characters of the Empress
We can almost probably assume Devrim Lingnau will return to reprise her role as Elisabeth von Wittelsbach, a.k.a. Sisi, if The Empress does make a comeback. After all, The Empress wouldn't be The Empress without The Empress.
We would anticipate seeing the following people join her:
- Princess Ludovika portrayed by Jördis Triebel
- Amalia, played by Hanna Hilsdorf
- As Louise, Svenja Jung
- As Ambassadeur De Bourqueney, Raymond Tarabay
- Emperor Franz Joseph as played by Phillip Froissant
- Sophia, played by Melika Foroutan
- Helene, played by Elisa Schlott
- Archduke Maximilian as played by Johannes Nussbaum
The Plot: What Might Occur in Season 2?
Elisabeth is imprisoned within the palace gates at the conclusion of The Empress for breaking royal protocol (acting compassionately) after going to the iron factory and lending a young girl in need her shoes.
Elisabeth slips in to despair as she loses all faith that anything would be done to save the needy and joins Franz's brother Maximillian in partying the days away, further tarnishing her reputation.
Archduchess Sophia, who is clearly at her wit's end with the disobedient Empress, suggests that Elisabeth return to Bavaria, and Franz, who engages in a heated argument with his wife and accuses her of having relations with his brother, agrees.
But Elisabeth finds out she is finally pregnant before Franz orders her to leave. Unfortunately, the Empress is devastated and decides not to tell her husband the news. When Elisabeth is ready to leave, a sizable, enraged throng that had been assembling at the palace gates to criticize the Emperor has completely blocked the exit.
Elisabeth asks that the gates be opened even if the guards want to turn the carriage around. The Empress greets the throng and says, “I see you,” before informing them that she is expecting a child while Franz and Sophia look on.
Will her actions persuade the public? Is she able to forgive Franz? How does Sophia intend to treat her now that she is expecting? If Netflix approves it, we would anticipate getting all these answers in season two.
