As Hooty pointed out on another thread, the broadcast in America of Season 2 (a.k.a. - Series 2, as it's called in the U.K.) of The Paradise had been in doubt, but whatever issues existed apparently have been resolved.

Series 1 of the lavish department store drama The Paradise just wrapped up this week on Masterpiece Classic, so it will probably come as good news to fans of the show that the story’s not over yet.
The department store drama has already been renewed for a second season, thanks to strong ratings on BBC One last year. The drama, which averaged nearly six million viewers per episode in the UK, will return with eight new episodes in Series 2 (in fact, the new season is currently airing in Great Britain as we speak – er, type.)
As those who have watched the Series 1 finale know, Series 2 is already shaping up to be quite, um…dramatic. Read on for details -and just so you know, there be spoilers ahead if you haven’t finished Series 1 yet!
Series 2 will be set a year after the dramatic events that occurred in the drama’s first year finale. The Paradise wrapped up its first season in high style – Moray jilted Katherine and chose Denise, Lord Glendenning became awfully powerful in this episode by taking ownership of The Paradise store (and presumably kicking Moray out, once he finds out about that whole Denise thing). Dun dun dunnnn.
