Early Renewal Sparks Excitement
In an exciting development, “Mayfair Witches” was renewed for a second season in February 2023, with the announcement coming surprisingly early in the first season’s run. This quick renewal signals AMC’s confidence in the series and its commitment to continuing the mystical narrative.
Speculating the Release Date

The upcoming season is expected to bring back key cast members from the first season, including:
