Netflix fans fell in love with Omar Rudberg and Edvin Ryding on Young Royals when the first season dropped on the streaming service in 2021.
Set in the fictional boarding school known as Hillerska, the series follows a young gay prince following in love with a fellow student. Ryding captivated viewers by playing Prince Wilhelm of Sweden, otherwise known as just Wille in school. Meanwhile, Young Royals fans also fell in love with Rudberg’s portrayal of Simon Eriksson, who turned out to be Wille’s love interest on the show.
Between shows like Young Royals, Heartstopper, and Sex Education, Netflix has been producing plenty of young adult series that feature main LGBTQ+ characters and storylines. As expected, there’s a very large audience and dedicated fanbase for those shows as young people see themselves represented in these stories. Now, Young Royals is finally coming back for its highly-anticipated second season – and fans can’t wait to see where things will go between Wille and Simon on the show!
