Season two of the acclaimed Greek television series Maestro in Blue is returning to Netflix on Thursday, May 16th. Unlike the first season, which initially debuted in Greece on Mega TV and was later picked up by Netflix for international distribution, the new season will premiere across the globe at the same time.

The series follows musician Orestis, who travels to Paxos, a small island in Greece during the pandemic to direct a music festival. There, he falls for an ambitious girl named Klelia and gets embroiled in the social problems of the local community.

The second season is going to follow up on the murder of Charalambos, committed by Klelia’s brother, Antonis. While Antonis’ mother will go to any extent to protect her son, Clelia will try to figure out why Orestis suddenly left her.

Meanwhile, the preparations for the music festival will continue, and Orestis might face more trouble as he is torn between his responsibility toward his wife and baby and his love for Klelia.

The second season consists of six episodes, while the series will conclude with a four-episode third season, expected to air in the fall of 2024 on Mega TV and Netflix.

The Greek drama show boasts a stacked cast with prominent and celebrated Greek stars like Christoforos Papakaliatis as Orestis, Klelia Andriolatou as Klelia, Orestis Chalkias as Antonis, and Marisha Triantafyllidou as Sophia, among others.
