Remember when Bridgerton was one of the biggest news following Christmas in 2020? Well, it’s been a while––and it’s been quite the uphill ride for the series. Now, Bridgerton boasts how it manhandled the top ten watchlists all across the globe. Based on the popular novels of Julia Quinn and the genius of Shondaland, the series is as steamy and scandalous as a series can get in Regency-era London. How’s that for a Christmas release?
What is Bridgerton all about?
The show revolves around the Bridgerton family who consists of eight siblings and their mother. A bit heavy on the love and drama side, the first season focused on the eldest Bridgerton girl, Daphne, as she makes her debut into society. Despite how everyone expected her to be the belle of the series, she fails to be pursued by proposals. However, she and the Duke of Hastings ‘fake’ a relationship to make herself approachable to her suitors. After faking what they thought to be temporary love, unexpected feelings came rushing in for Daphne and the Duke of Hastings.
Has Bridgerton been renewed for a second season?
Because of the quick rise to the top, it was pretty clear that Bridgerton wasn’t ending with just one season. Considering the series is based on Quinn’s novels is one clue that this series was created to be bigger than most.
Way back in February 2020, there were already advancements toward the second season of Bridgerton. However, because of the pandemic, production of the series was quickly shut down. However, they came back stronger in January 2021 when Netflix teased the announcement through a video:
Adding to the excitement was Lady Bridgerton herself on social media, saying:
“The ton are abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honour to impart to you: Bridgerton shall officially return for a second season. I do hope you have stored a bottle of ratafia for this most delightful occasion.”
When will Bridgerton Season 2 be on Netflix?
Well, all of us could be in for a patient year. Aforementioned, filming was pushed back because of the pandemic. However, Bridgerton Season 2 is already being filmed and is on its way. The first season took its time in terms of production so don’t be surprised if the second season also plans to do so. If anything, expect the second season to come in 2022.
What to expect from Season 2 of Bridgerton?
You know how it works, people! SPOILERS ALERT (for season one)!
There was one press release that almost gave it all––from the release date to what to expect of the second season of Bridgerton:
“Anthony Bridgerton hasn’t just decided to marry – he’s even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended’s older sister, Kate Sheffield – the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate is the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams. Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands – and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate is determined to protect her sister – but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony’s lips touch hers, she’s suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself.”
