Everything We Know About ‘Maxton Hall’ Season 2!

Dying to know what happens next with James Beaufort and Ruby Bell? Great news, their story will continue when Maxton Hall returns to our screens for season 2!

Not hard to see why – the series is highly addictive! Based on the book Save Me by Mona Kasten, season 1 follows the story of scholarship student Ruby, who witnesses an explosive secret at Maxton Hall Private College. Per the official synopsis, “the arrogant millionaire heir James Beaufort has to deal with the quick-witted scholarship student. He is determined to silence Ruby.

Philip Pratt, head of German Originals at the streamer says “Maxton Hall – The World Between Us tells a universal love story of the love between two people from different worlds that has captivated viewers all over the world. We can’t wait to start the production of the new season and continue the story.”

We can’t wait either! Kasten’s books are yet to be translated to English so we really, really want to know what happens next…
