Development of the television series Grand Army
The television series has been created to extend the play by Katie Cappiello in the year 2013. The series was also based on the real-life happenings of her students.
In 2019, the extension of Katie’s plays was ordered for a ten-episode television series. The principal photography for the same began in May 2019 and went on till September 2019. The location for the shooting was limited to Toronto and New York City.
The teaser and first look images were released about a year later, in September 2020. A full official trailer was launched in October, a few days before the official release of the entire television series.
The series’ final premiering took place on 16th October 2020 with nine episodes instead of the ten episodes order.
The release date of the second season of Grand Army
We all know that the series is quite new, and Netflix takes some time to renew the series. It seems that it is going to take some time before the series is even renewed. This is said to keep the coronavirus pandemic in mind, which has significantly slowed down things.
Even if the series is renewed soon, you can expect everything to take a little more time than usual. Although no announcements have been made, the earliest we can expect the series to return is in the fall of next year. Any release dates before that period seem to be impossible. Even the release in 2021 has very slim chances. It can be expected that the series will return in 2022, given that it is renewed in the recent future.
