The second series of Apple TV+ period drama The Buccaneers has started filming, with the majority of the shoot taking place in Scotland.

The drama is based on Edith Wharton’s unfinished novel, published in 1938, a year after she died. The book centres on five wealthy and aspirational American women in 1870s London as they navigate the debutante season.

The first series starred Alisha Boe, Imogen Waterhouse, Aubri Ibrag, Kristine Frøseth and Josie Totah. It was created by Katherine Jakeways who was head writer, with Susanna White lead director. The Buccaneers is produced by The Forge for Apple TV+.

As with the first series, a short stint of the second run will film in Europe, with most of the 24-week shoot based in Scotland; Glasgow doubled for New York City in S1.

The first series also filmed at several National Trust for Scotland locations, with Culzean Castle & Country Park in Ayrshire playing Tintagel Castle; Newhailes House, a stately home in Musselburgh, providing the backdrop as Brightlingsea Townhouse and St Abb’s Head doubling as the Cornish coast.
