The second season of the PBS series starring Jeremy Piven as London's mercantile king is headed for Blu-ray in April. Pre-order it here.
In an early announcement to retailers, PBS is working on 'Masterpiece: Mr. Selfridge Season 2' for Blu-ray on April 29.
Three-time Emmy(R) winner Jeremy Piven ("Entourage") returns for a sumptuous new season of "Mr. Selfridge" as the man who brought seductive shopping to early twentieth-century London. A Co-Production of ITV Studios and MASTERPIECE, Season 2 continues the drama surrounding the birth of Selfridge & Co., the pioneering London department store founded in 1909 by American capitalist buccaneer, Harry Gordon Selfridge - portrayed with passion, charm, and a generous dose of human flaws by Piven.
The returning cast includes Frances O'Connor ("Madame Bovary") as Harry's decent, down-to-earth wife, Rose; Aisling Loftus ("Page Eight") as Agnes Towler, the gutsy sales clerk promoted to head of display; Amanda Abbington ("Sherlock" Season 3) as Miss Mardle, jilted in love last season but smiled on by fate in the new series; and Ron Cook ("Little Dorrit") as Mr. Crabb, the store's money man with the bunny-in-the-headlights stare.
"MR. SELFRIDGE SEASON 2" opens in the spring of 1914 with the store's gala fifth anniversary. Many employees have moved up the promotion ladder, some have moved on, and Rose has moved out - back to America from pique with Harry over his blatant infidelities. She unexpectedly returns to London, but as a changed woman. Meanwhile the loose ends of love affairs from last season get tied up as men are called to serve in a war that will change their lives forever.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the 3-disc Blu-ray set is $44.99.
