Coughlan revealed in a recent interview that the next season would be fun. She teased about the exciting chemistry between Bailey's and Ashley's characters, which will dazzle fans.

The new trailer comes after Regé-Jean Page announced his exit from the series. It's unclear whether Page will make a surprise appearance, but he left the door open for any possible cameos.
During the 2021 Emmys, the critically-acclaimed drama series won its first award for Outstanding Period and/or Character Hairstyling. The hit show scored 12 Emmy nominations last year.
