Since its launch on May 9, 2024, the first season of the series achieved the largest first week global viewership for an International Original in Prime Video history, reaching the number 1 spot on the Prime Video Charts in over 120 countries and territories.  The “Maxton Hall Effect” is being seen across Germany, from stars Damian Hardung and Harriet Herbig-Matten who have seen an 480% and 3,900% increase in social reach since launch as well as for the city Hannover in Saxony, Germany, that has seen an increase in travel interest of more than 400%.

This is how the story continues at Maxton Hall Private College:

Those who fly high can also fall low… After their passionate night together in Oxford and her greatest life goal within reach, everything seems to be going perfectly for Ruby (Harriet Herbig-Matten). But a stroke of fate in James’ (Damian Hardung) family changes everything and James himself, of all people, brings her back from cloud nine to a harsh reality. Ruby is devastated. She has never had such strong feelings for anyone as she does for James – and she has never been so hurt by anyone either. She wants her old life back, where no one at Maxton Hall knew her and she wasn’t part of the elitist world of her classmates. But she can’t forget James – especially since he’s doing everything he can to win her back.

In addition to Damian Hardung and Harriet Herbig-Matten, Sonja Weißer as Lydia, Ben Felipe as Cyril, Fedja van Huêt as Mortimer, Runa Greiner as Ember, Justus Riesner as Alistair and Andrea Guo as Lin return to the cast of the second season.

Martin Schreier (Traumfabrik) once again directs the second season of Maxton Hall – The World Between Us. Producers are Markus Brunnemann and Ceylan Yildirim, who also acts as showrunner and head writer of the series. Valentin Debler is once again the producer for UFA Fiction.
