Bardot: Will there be a second season of the series?
Last night France 2 broadcast the last two episodes of its Bardot series. Can the series hope for a sequel despite disappointing viewer numbers?
It was this spring’s series of mini events dedicated to France 2: Bardot With the reveal, Julia de Nunez ended last night in front of just 1.8million viewers.
Can the prestige of the series make it possible to get a second season? At the moment there is no announcement from France Télévisions, which has always presented the film as a mini-series anyway. Doing a little research during the press conference, we could hear from the chain that “if it’s going to be a hit, why not talk about a second season” but that nothing was discussed. Basically a miniseries that we’ll extend if it works (whereas a miniseries basically has a beginning and an end).
But given the final results – the series was watched by an average of 2.3 million people – we don’t see how the channel could continue the adventure given this result (knowing, for example, that it was cancelled). The code which worked better). Still very successful (we liked it very much Bardot) the series suffered from the full competition The Wanderers on TF1, which again proved to be a great success last night. We will therefore await the decision of the chain, but the chances are minimal.
What is this series? Brigitte Bardot, a little girl from the 16th arrondissement of Paris with a strict upbringing, finds herself ugly and unloved. Thanks to meeting her first love, Roger Vadim, she grows up, emancipates herself and defies all regulations. In 1956, the release of the film “And God… created woman” by this young man, whose heroine is Brigitte, sparked a worldwide sexual revolution of which she became an icon.
Bardot embraces her sexuality, not wanting to be a good wife or mother. She allows herself to choose her men, dress and undress as she sees fit, and say whatever is on her mind. This boundless freedom drives them into the media spotlight and triggers as much hate as admiration. She becomes the muse of an enchanted parenthesis, a time when irrepressible urges are finally released. She is the first French star whose image transcends all borders, influences all fashions and creates a shockwave that reaches even the most remote villages in the world.
The extraordinary fate of this young woman, a fairy tale that sometimes turns into a nightmare, also paints the portrait of an era: post-war France, which goes from black and white to color and devours carefree, fun and sun in this new paradise, the Saint – Tropez and whose goddess Bardot becomes.
