What can Bride & Prejudice: Forbidden Love Season 2 be About?
In season 1, we see that despite all the drama, that the three couples go through during the planning process, everything turns out fine in the end, and love wins over the long-standing cultural and religious beliefs of the family. Eugene and Samantha, Briana and Adam, and Lou and Chris receive the blessings and love of their families as they enter into the sacred covenant of marriage.
Season 2 will follow three madly-in-love couples, Willi and Cameron, Blair and Chris, and Kiandria and Kareem as they strive to convince their families to accept their love despite the cultural, regional and age differences. The couples will also have to make sure their relationship survives the ebbs and flows of their journey of acceptance instead of succumbing to familial pressure.
Cameron, who is Christian, might have to convert his faith to Judaism, at the insistence of Willi’s father. In the case of Blair and Chris, Blair’s mother doesn’t approve of Chris’ Korean heritage. Along with the fact that he is Asian, she also has a problem with Chris’ way of living. Can the two manage to make her understand their love and commitment towards each other, and turn her disapproval upside down?
As for Kiandria and Kareem, Kiandria is the mother of a 6-yr-old son. Plus, they have an age gap of 4 years. Kiandria’s family doesn’t want her to marry Kareem because they do not favor his personality. They can even ask him to take a lie-detector test. On the other hand, Kareem’s parents feel he is not mature enough to be a husband and a father yet. This might cause some friction between the two and can also result in Kareem having a total breakdown.
Can true love prevail against all the odds?
