Earlier today, actor Ben Platt – who plays Payton – took to Twitter to share the artwork for series two featuring the key characters, which was swiftly retweeted by Netflix's official account.

The poster also revealed season two will premiere on the streaming service on June 19, and fans were beyond excited by the news.

One wrote: "I AM SO READY" while another added: "Bring it on. Exciting!!!!!"

A third tweeted: "I can't wait! I LOVED this show!"



Season two sees Payton determined to unseat Senate Majority Leader Dede Standish, who is campaigning for a new term in the New York State Senate race.

Bette Midler plays Chief of Staff Hadassah Gold and while she is on team Dede, as Payton starts to figure out what kind of politician he wants to be, he has the potential to expose plenty secrets and lies.

However his dreams could be upstaged by his mother Georgina (Gwyneth Paltrow) as she makes a huge decision of her own.

The second season features seven episodes – one less than the first season – which were completed before the coronavirus pandemic.

Ryan Murphy, who created the series alongside Gwyneth's husband Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, recently revealed he had considered delaying the third season for some time to pick it up later in Payton's career.

He explained to Collider: "I think where season 2 ends, what I would love to do is take a couple of years off and have Ben Platt get a little bit older for his final race.

"That would obviously be a presidential race, right? That’s always what we had designed, and I think that’s what our plan is."

“I’m going to wait. Ben is young, so I want to wait a couple of years to figure out how we age him up a little bit. But that’s always been my plan.”

The Politician season two returns to Netflix on Friday, June 19.
