Bridgerton Season 2 Update The Netflix historical drama Bridgerton, based on Julia Quinn’s hugely popular novels, premiered on December 25, 2020. The eight-episode first season featured the London-based Bridgerton family as their eldest daughter Daphne (played by Phoebe Dynevor) made her society debut, falling into an odd romance with a duke—and ultimately a prince. The story revolves around the rise of a seemingly almighty gossip journalist and the vicissitudes of Regency-era aristocratic society.
Julie Andrews, Regé-Jean Page, Freddie Stroma, Golda Rosheuvel, and others star in this rich, delicious story, which is made possible by a superb ensemble cast, which includes Julie Andrews, Regé-Jean Page, Freddie Stroma, Golda Rosheuvel, and others. The sitcom was also well-received by critics, receiving 12 Emmy nominations. And, happily, for fans, it’ll be back for a third installment.
Here’s all we know about Bridgerton Season 2
On March 25, the second season will premiere.
Shortly after the release of season one, Netflix announced that Bridgerton will be renewed for a second season. According to a Netflix press release, “Bridgerton has been renewed for a second season… Bridgerton’s legendary cast will return to the stage in the spring of 2021.” The season was done filming in mid-November, according to actor Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anthony Bridgerton. “The second series is now complete. Heart overflowing, “He expressed himself on social media.
Chris Van Dusen, the showrunner, also shared the news of the completion of production on Twitter “Season Two has come to an end! I’m very proud of our cast and crew for bringing their A-game to work every day during this difficult year.”
Shonda Rhimes provided an update on season 2 in December 2021, revealing that they were halfway done editing the episodes.
“Everyone was so upset about Regé not returning as the duke, and I said early on that our goal is that every season, you have a couple that you’re obsessed with, and you can’t believe we’re not going to see more of their story next season, because we’re telling a complete love story every season,” Rhimes told Adweek, according to Fansided. “And that is what Season 2 is all about. We’re almost halfway through editing all of the episodes, and they’re looking fantastic.”
Several season images have already been made public.
Van Dusen gave fans a taste of season two by revealing the title of the first episode. “Episode #201 of ‘Capital R Rake.'” Van Dusen shared a screenshot of a screenplay on Twitter. A “rake” was a term used in the past to describe a man who was prone to womanizing and sexual activities. While we don’t know who this “rake” is, we can assume that Bridgerton’s second season will kick off with the usual scandal.
Bailey was observed working with Simone Ashley, who plays Kate Sharma, Anthony’s love interest, in Sex Education last year. The two appear to be filming a scene at a horse race in the photo below, along with returning cast mates Luke Newton (Colin Bridgerton), Luke Thompson (Benedict Bridgerton), Claudia Jessie (Eloise Bridgerton), Ruth Gemmell (Lady Violet Bridgerton), and Adjoa Andoh (Lady Danbury).
Jessica Madsen appears to be reading a brochure (most likely from Lady Whistledown herself) in another set photo as two companions gaze on.
