American Princess' season 2 is imminent thanks to its perfect combination of funny and raunchy, shares actor Seana Kofoed
Though the series has just kicked off with season one, fans and viewers are eager to know if the series will be renewed for season 2
Lifetime's newly released series 'American Princess' will leave you shocked at the similarity between the original Renaissance Faire lifestyle and now. The show starts off with the dream wedding of socialite Amanda Klein (Georgia Flood) getting off on the wrong foot after she finds her fiancé cheating on her with a hooker on the day of their wedding.
Once she sees her finacé with the hooker, Klein elopes from her wedding and ends up in a Renaissance Faire which she assumes to be a themed wedding. Eventually, she figures out it is a Renaissance Faire and ends up joining the Faire as a bartender to get away from her regular city life and start anew.
The series is filled with bawdy humor and if you like that, then 'American Princess' is your cup of tea. Though the series has just premiered and is still on season one, fans and viewers are eager to know if the series will be renewed for season two. Though 'American Princess' for a major part is filled with ribaldry humor, the series is more or less like a perfect representation of raunchy, funny and exactly things you would see happen at a Ren Faire. To see what they continue to portray in season two depending on how season one ends, it would overall be good news if the series does get renewed for a second season.
Sharing her thoughts on the series and if there are any possibilities of the series being renewed for another season, Seana Kofoed, who plays the role of Queen Elizabeth I in the series, revealed that there has not been any news yet on season two but, "we’re hopeful, of course, as we think it’s a great escape of a show. It’s funny, occasionally raunchy, and ultimately very relatable, set in the refreshingly unique world of the Ren Faire."
The series has aired with just three episodes, talking about what fans and viewers can expect in future episodes, Kofoed said, "I think people who’ve lived the RenFaire life will find that our show is a love letter to them, I think people who’ve always been curious about RenFaires will finally take the plunge, and I think people who’ve looked askance at RenFaires will show up next year in full Elizabethan garb, get tipsy on mead, and probably go home with the Rat Catcher."
Queen Elizabeth's costume was a heavy one, revealed Kofoed. On how she managed with it, she said, "I LOVED my costume. That beautiful dress and crown, designed by the brilliant Beth Morgan, was a joy to wear because it was instantly transformative. I also have a clumsy streak — I trip, I misjudge the width of doorways, that sort of thing — so being weighted down like that was strangely comforting. I was like a ship with many anchors."
The entire set of 'American Princess' seemed like a really fun one with all the bonfire, play re-enacting and jousting. Talking more about the fun the cast had behind the scenes while shooting, Kofoed revealed, "The entire cast got along so wonderfully. One bonfire scene we were shooting early on had maybe 12 characters in it, and between takes, we’d keep running back to our massive game of Cards Against Humanity in a tent nearby. I think someone had a guitar. There was definitely singing. The whole night — actually the whole several-month shoot — had a Ren Faire within a Ren Faire vibe to it."
Apart from acting in 'American Princess', Kofoed also wrote, produced and acted in '30 Miles From Nowhere', a horror/thriller film. Revealing what inspired her to write that movie, the actress said, "I've always been fascinated by the life spans of different friendships and at what point they crack under pressure. I wanted to shoot a limited location film with pals who are also great actors. My producing partner, Kelly Demaret, one of our leads, Rob Benedict, and I all went to college together, so the shoot had a bit of a summer camp feel. We also had a no A-holes rule, to which we strictly adhered, so that helped too!"
