Let’s take a leap into the storyline of A Very British Scandal.
What is the storyline of A Very British Scandal?
A Very British Scandal revolves around the high-profile divorce between the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, which led to the latter being worsened by the failure of her marriage because of the press and people she was surrounded by.
The case had allegations of counterfeit, robbery, abuse, drug consumption, secret recording, bribery, and an explicit polaroid photo, and these all threatened to damage the Duchess’ esteem.

With this case, the series features the social and political climate of post-war Britain, looking at behaviors towards women and asking if institutional prejudice was extensive during that time.
Whilst her contemporaries, the press, and the judiciary wanted to disparage her, Margaret remained her head held high with all the courage and fortitude, declining to go silently in spite of being backstabbed by her friends and shamed by a society in public that celebrated her fall from grace.
Sadly, there is no information about Season 2 of A Very British Scandal and given that season one premiered the last year-end only so it is okay if the team is taking time to make a decision about the renewal of the miniseries.
