My Unorthodox Life Season 2: Release Date, Cast And New Details

Fashion designer Julia Haart led a very different life just years ago. She shared her compelling story in a nine-episode Netflix series called "My Unorthodox Life" (per IMDb). 

Haart previously lived in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community that was north of New York City. By her account, Haart found the community stifling from a young age but felt she had no other options. It wasn't until she was 43 and saw what was happening with her own daughter that she decided to escape. "They were doing to her what they had done to me — trying to push her down and mold her into that flat person that they could disappear. I couldn't let that happen," she told New York Times. "I literally packed my [expletive] and walked out the door with her."

Haart put her mind to fashion design and despite the immense obstacles ahead, broke through with a shoe line. That shoe line led to a La Perla opportunity, which in turn led her to meet her current husband, Silvio Scaglia (per SCMP). "My Unorthodox Life" explores Haart's present life as a mom, wife, and CEO.

When is Season 2 of My Unorthodox Life being released?

"My Unorthodox Life" debuted to a mixed reception. While some praised Julia Haart's bravery in telling her story, she was slammed by some for villainizing the Jewish community during an already fragile time when hate crimes were increasing (per CNET). 

Despite the backlash, "My Unorthodox Life" has been renewed for a second season as of September 2021 (per Variety). Haart appeared on E!'s Daily Pop to dish about what's ahead for Season 2. "People got very curious about our life," Haart shared (per E! News). "I love constantly changing and evolving, so there are a lot of surprises in Season 2, let's just stay that."

With Netflix's timing for filming reality series, it's likely Season 2 of "My Unorthodox Life" will follow a similar filming schedule as Season 1. Season 1 premiered in the summer of 2021, so many expect that Season 2 will be rolling out during the summer of 2022 (per Oprah Daily).

Who is in the cast of My Unorthodox Life Season 2?

Family is at the center of Julia Haart's story. It was her love of her children that gave her the strength to leave Orthodox life behind, so it only makes sense that her family is also at the center of "My Unorthodox Life" Season 2.

Haart's husband, Silvio Scaglia, is likely to reappear in the series. Her four children were also heavily featured in Season 1, so expect to see daughters 28-year-old Batsheva and 21-year-old Miriam as well as sons 25-year-old Shlomo and 15-year-old Aron back on your screens in Season 2 (via Screen Rant). Watching the children become empowered in their own interests and life's pursuits has really endeared fans to these children and this family as a whole.

Fans are eager to see if there are any new faces in "My Unorthodox Life" Season 2. Haart's interesting and ever-evolving professional life certainly leaves the door open for all kinds of encounters. 

New Details about Season 2 of My Unorthodox Life

Julia Haart has stayed relatively mum about Season 2 of "My Unorthodox Life," but Netflix has given a couple of hints about what the season will entail. The streaming platform told Variety that it will have all of our favorite F's: "fashion, family, female empowerment, faith, fabulousness," adding that it will also "of course" have Haart. According to the outlet, Haart will again serve as an executive producer alongside Jeff Jenkins, Ross Weintraub, and Reinout Oerlemans.

As Bustle points out, Netflix has not only released a variety of films and shows portraying the Orthodox Jewish experience from various perspectives, but it has also been churning out more and more reality TV shows as of late. "Some of the company's biggest reality hits so far have been dating shows such as 'Love is Blind' and 'Too Hot to Handle,' but it's also found success with reality series more similar to 'My Unorthodox Life,' like 'Selling Sunset' and 'Bling Empire,'" Bustle stated. But fans of "My Unorthodox Life" will tell you that the show is truly one of a kind.
