Bridgerton's Season 2 hype shifts into full gear
Los Gatos, California - Dear Readers: Should you need a lovely gown and a bit of good news on this cold winter day, it has arrived. Season 2 of Bridgerton returns to Netflix in early spring, with new episodes beginning March 25.
Fans are already foaming at the mouth over the news that one of Netflix's most watched shows ever has finished filming its second season and will soon return.
The streaming giant dropped a video on Christmas Day – the one-year anniversary of Bridgerton's season 1 release – delivering the gift of the next installment's arrival date. And since then, the buzz has only increased.
In the clip, the new season's cast members receive an announcement letter from Lady Whistledown.
The studly Regé-Jean Page is, alas, no longer on the show — let us have a moment of silence for the Duke of Hastings — but there will be plenty of romance, and most likely, plenty of glam.
Costume designer Ellen Mirojnick said that the first season had more than 7,500 elaborate costumes that are all original to the show. Here’s hoping season 2, designed by Sophie Canale, will have at least as many cute corsets and cummerbunds.
Season 2 of Bridgerton will tell the story of Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s (played by Jonathan Bailey) quest for love as he sets out to find a wife. He will perhaps find it among a new sister pair. Kate Sharma (played by Simone Ashley) and her younger sister Edwina (played by Charithra Chandran) will soon arrive from India to shake things up on the British dating scene.
The show from mega producer Shonda Rhimes has already announced a future Season 3 and 4, and will perhaps also be closely based on the series of novels by Julia Quinn – which inspired the show. So if you can't wait and want some spoilers, pick up one of the salivatingly salacious books.
Otherwise, the countdown is on to March 25, when you are cordially invited to the event of the season.
