As summer winds down, Indian Summers returns with it's new second season. 

The series described by Variety as “picturesque, wonderfully soapy, and set against a rich historical backdrop”, Indian Summers returns for a second season. It’s 1935 in Simla—an Indian retreat for British colonials set in the Himalayas. Catch the new season starting Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 10pm on WXXI-TV

Filmed in Penang, Malaysia, the original drama was set in the summer of 1932 with the British desperately clinging to power while India begins to dream of independence, During the summer months, the Indian Civil Service prepared for its annual move to Simla which doubled as the summer home of a group of British socialites at the time of the British Raj. For series 2, the Royal Simla Club, again headed by the doyenne of the social scene, Cynthia Coffin, is in full swing during the summer of 1935. Julie Walters returns as Cynthia along with a few new characters played by Rachel Griffiths, Art Malik, James Fleet, Sugandha Garg, Arjun Mathur and Blake Ritson. Returning with Walters will be Jemima West (Alice Whelan), Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Ralph Whelan), and Nikesh Patel (Aafrin Dalal).
