Twice Upon A Time is a time travel romantic drama that airs on Netflix. The French mini-series, originally named as Il était une seconde fois, has been created by Guillaume Nicloux and features a man whose life, after his break-up, is changed forever because of an unknown package delivered at his doorstep. Nicloux is a French novelist, actor, and director, known for movies like ‘The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq’, ‘A Valley of Love’, ‘A Private Affair’, ‘To the Ends of the World’ and a lot more.
The show is as close to reality as it is far away from it. The bearing of a broken relationship and the struggle to get over true love are the two aspects that are shown beautifully in the series. Majority of the audience should be able to relate with it. At the same time, instead of making the subject gloomy and saddening, the creators, by adding a supernatural twist to the plot, make the story interesting and entertaining. Overall, the show is neither too dramatic nor entirely rom-com, but still is quite watchable.
The first season of the show was well-received by the audiences, but critics weren’t so kind to it. So, now the question naturally arises: will there be a Twice Upon A Time season 2? We will delve into that question, but first let’s quickly look into the details of the series.
Twice Upon A Time Cast: Who’s in it?
Gaspard Ulliel plays the character of Vincent Dauda, the man dealing with a break-up. The French actor and model is known for his roles as Yves Saint Laurent in ‘Saint Laurent’. He has also played the character of a notorious serial killer, Hannibal Lector, in ‘Hannibal Rising’. To watch Gaspard play the role of a nice grieving man, after playing such a dark role as Hannibal, would be something of a treat for the audience.
Freya Mavor plays the character of Louise Arron, Vincent’s ex-girlfriend. Mavor is a Scottish actress and model who is best known for her character as Mini McGuinness in ‘Skin’.
Apart from the main leads, the cast also includes Patrick d’Assumçao, Richard Dillane, Claire Sermonne, Eva Ionesco, Thomas Rodriguez and Juliette Joy Anquetil.
If season 2 is greenlit, we expect most of the main cast members to return to the show.
Twice Upon A Time Plot: What is it about?
Vincent is in his thirties. His life was perfect, he was happy and was dating a beautiful French-British girl named Louise. Until he wasn’t. There are rare few who can easily recover from a break-up; Vincent isn’t one of them. He is unable to move on in life after his break-up. He finds himself lost and has no idea what life has planned for him next. He wastes his days in alcohol and nights at meaningless parties. He no longer cares about the future, his present is deep in sorrow, and he cannot change his past. Or, can he?
Vincent receives an unknown package and has no idea where it came from. Inside, is a wooden cube with supernatural powers. As soon as he slips inside it, he finds himself back at the same place again. Though this time, the date has changed. Vincent has gone back in the past. At first, perplexed with the sudden discovery, Vincent soon starts to calm his emotions. It strikes to him that this wooden box, which is actually a passage into the past, can be his ticket to change his life. He decides to use this box and its power to travel back in time and rectify the mistakes he has made in his relationship with Louise. In other words, the wooden box is his key to win the love of his life back.
Season 1 ends on a pretty inconclusive note, leaving things open for a possible second season.
Twice Upon A Time Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Twice Upon A Time season 1 premiered on December 19, 2019 on Netflix. All the 4 episodes dropped on the same day.
As far as the next season goes, we don’t have an official announcement yet. Though the way season 1 ends clearly indicates that the makers would like to carry forward the story. But the question is, wether Netflix also wants the same. In any case, if the show does get renewed, Twice Upon A Time season 2 can release sometime in December 2020. We will update this section as soon as we hear more.
