Period drama Harlots will be back for a second season this summer!  

The series stars Emily Watson, Lesley Manville and Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay, among others, as members of two rival bawd houses in Georgian London. And before you immediately assume that Harlots is some kind of  exploitative trash, let me assure you that it’s not. The series is inspired by stories from real women, features an all-female creative team and is, in all honesty, one of the most thoughtful and feminist programs I watched last year.
