Atlantic Crossing, a new period drama about the Norwegian royal family during WWII, explores Crown Princess Märtha's close relationship with American President FDR, and her journey to safety in the U.S. amid fighting in Europe. It only recently started airing stateside, but American fans of the series are already curious if the story will get a second chapter. Viewers have been drawn in by the characters, the costumes, and the unfamiliar story of the Nazi occupation of Norway, a piece of history that hasn't been covered on film as frequently as some other moments in the war.

Here's what we know so far about a potential season two.

The show was always planned as a one-season mini-series.

While Atlantic Crossing has been compared to Netflix's The Crown, a multi-season chronicle of Queen Elizabeth's reign, the Masterpiece PBS series was always planned to be one season, and tells a complete story. So fans shouldn't hope for additional episodes beyond the eight in season one.

Masterpiece PBS has confirmed the news that the show will not have a second season.

In an email to T&C, a spokesperson for the series shared: "Atlantic Crossing is a miniseries and will not have a second season."

But if you're still left wanting more, we suggest tuning in to another WWII-set Masterpiece PBS series: World on Fire. That series chronicles significant moments in the war from five different perspectives. Season one aired last year, and is available to stream on Amazon Prime. It's set to return for a second chapter, though a premiere date has yet to be announced.
