First look at Game of Thrones star Kit Harington's next TV role in new trailer

·2-min read

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, X-Men's Anna Paquin, Bohemian Rhapsody's Lucy Boynton and Christopher Robin's Sophie Okonedo are just some of the stars featured in the trailer for season 2 of Amazon Prime Video's anthology series Modern Love.

Like Black Mirror, except a LOT less dark, each episode of the show – based on The New York Times' weekly column – features different characters in varying scenarios, from coming to terms with sexuality to trying to break out of the friend zone, to reuniting after a one-off hook-up and discovering romance.

Harington's storyline sees his character meet a girl played by Boynton on a train. Rather than exchange numbers (or Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat/LinkedIn profiles), they decide to do things old school and meet on the same train journey in two weeks. Then, the pandemic hits...

Paquin's episode sees her star alongside Tron: Legacy's Garrett Hedlund, with the pair playing two people who discover their respective partners are having an affair with each other, and bond over that.

Modern Love season 2 will be available from August 13 on Amazon Prime Video.
