The Plot of Mrs Wilson Season 2
Mrs. Wilson is based on Ruth Wilson’s grandmother’s memoir, Alison Wilson. We meet Alison and her husband Alexander called Alec, an author and a spy, married for 22 years. During WWII, they met as secret agents. When Alec suddenly dies of a heart attack, his heartbroken widow is greeted with stunning secrets that begin to unravel after his death. She learns that Alec had other children besides their two sons and that she was not his only wife.
Mrs. Wilson transports us to 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s London and 1930s India, where Alison encounters dark secrets in her effort to verify her marriage. She unearths a dark background when she realizes her late husband had four wives and seven children. He hadn’t divorced any of them and kept each family in the dark. Why? MI5 and MI6 wouldn’t reveal the case-sensitive documents, so no one knows if he did it for love or work. Whatever the reason, Alec’s death sealed the secrets.
So, Alec Wilson, who? Was he a hero or a bigamist? Let us examine his natural history. Gladys, Alec’s first legal wife, had three children with him. They had a touring play company after WWI, and he moved to India to teach English at the University of Punjab. This is when he started writing spy thrillers and possibly working for the CIA. He wrote 27 books in his lifetime. In India, he remarried Dorothy, a touring actress. He returned to England with Dorothy and their son but hid them in London for 18 months before returning to Gladys in Southampton. After 18 months, Alec paid interim visits to both his wives before disappearing for a few years.
Next, Alec remarried Alison, whom he met as his secretary while working for MI6 in the 1940s. Their sons were two. He married Elizabeth Hill, a young nurse, in the 1950s and had another son.
Alec’s life was full of mysteries and deceptions. The layers of lies make it difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction. Finally, his acts had severe ramifications on his family, which only surfaced after his death. And this is what the show aims to reveal through one of his wives, Alison, the main character.
The Release Date of Mrs Wilson Season 2
It debuted on PBS and Amazon Prime Video on March 31, 2019. We haven’t gotten an official announcement for the forthcoming season. We’d be surprised if the show got a second season, given that it was initially a miniseries. Given the slim chance of renewal, we expect Mrs Wilson Season 2 to be accessible on Amazon Prime Video (Doc Martin Season 10) soon. We will update this section when new information comes in.
