The streamer hasn’t revealed when the second series, which was forced to shut down production multiple times over the last twelve months due to Covid, will air.
The second season is set to move on to another book in Julia Quinn’s series. It will focus on Anthony Bridgerton’s (Jonathan Bailey) quest for love as chronicled in the second book from Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series The Viscount Who Loved Me.
Van Dusen recently revealed that sparks have been flying between Simone Ashley’s Kate Sharma and Jonathan Bailey’s Anthony Bridgerton calling the pair “magnetic”.
The Duke of Hastings himself, Regé-Jean Page, also hinted in a recent interview that he may make a cameo in the second season.
Major new Season 2 cast additions include female lead Simone Ashley, who plays Kate Sharma; Charithra Chandran, who plays Edwina Sharma, as well as Rupert Young (Jack), Shelley Conn (Mary Sharma) and Calam Lynch (Theo Sharpe).
Bridgerton is set in the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society. At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family. Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.
The series, which became Netflix’s biggest ever series after it was watched by a record 82 million households around the world, comes from Shondaland and is exec produced by Van Dusen, Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers.
It has already been renewed for a third and fourth season and is getting a Young Queen Charlotte spin-off.
