Since 2004, the eponymous column has featured weekly personal essays by New Yorkers sharing their take on intimacy in the 21st Century. That’s ample material for this Amazon Original series to draw on, whose second series consists of eight 30-minute-long episodes: each variously charting the thrill of new love, romantic desire, the platonic bonds of friendship, familial affection, and love lost or unrequited.

While the show’s debut was New York-centric, season 2 will see love blossom further afield. Kit Harrington and Lucy Boynton feel the initial kindling of attraction on a train journey through Dublin, but their attempted reunion is stalled when the pandemic erupts. Meanwhile, in the London-set “Second Embrace, With Hearts and Eyes Open”, a divorced couple (Sophie Okonedo and Tobias Menzies) begin a passionate reconnection, heightened when one of them receives a life-changing medical diagnosis.

Uniting another impressive group of A-listers, among them Minnie Driver, Anna Paquin, Jack Reynor, Miranda Richardson and Garrett Hedlund, Modern Love continues to woo viewers with its varied depictions of that difficult to define emotion. Keep reading as we explain below how to watch Modern Love season 2 online when you subscribe to Amazon Prime Video.
