Bridgerton renewed for Season 2 on Netflix as viewers devour raunchy Regency drama

Good news, dear reader, Bridgerton has officially been renewed for a season two on Netflix.

The period drama, starring Rege-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor, has become a blockbuster hit with around 63 million people tuning in since it debuted at Christmas.

Fans finally got the news that had been begging today when a second season was confirmed on the show’s social media accounts.

The tweet read: ‘Prepare for another social season. Bridgerton is returning for season two, only on Netflix.’

Showrunner Chris Van Dusen told Today with Hoda and Jenna: ‘I am so thrilled to be announcing that Bridgerton will be back for a second season.

We are going to be starting filming later this Spring in London and we’re all so excited. I know the cast can’t wait to get back to it and neither can I.’

 

It comes after Dusen recently admitted he would love to explore each character in more seasons and, with the Bridgerton gang consisting of eight kids, it could mean the series will be around for a while yet.

Dusen told Collider: ‘This being a family of eight children and there being eight books, I would love to be able to focus and really tell stories and love stories for all the Bridgerton siblings. For each character, for sure. I would love that.’

Book two of the series, created by Julia Quinn, focuses on Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, Daphne’s older brother whose path to true love hasn’t exactly run smooth.

 

In season one, he became embroiled in a romantic affair with opera singer Siena who he was in love with but couldn’t marry.

It’s expected that season two of the Netflix series will follow his quest for a wife, with book fans keen for beloved scenes such as the Pall Mall game to feature.

Season one left viewers completely enchanted with the love story of Daphne and the Duke of Hastings, Simon Bassett.

Their relationship began as a fake romance so Daphne could stir interest with other suitors and Simon could mask his pledge not to have children.

They of course fell for each other but found themselves constantly butting heads -and other things – with all the twists and turns of their romance.

Bridgerton is available to watch on Netflix.
