Netflix has just got us all very excited for Bridgerton season 2 after introducing a brand new family in the first official photos from the upcoming episodes.
While the Duke of Hastings himself, Regé-Jean Page, won’t be returning, there are plenty of fresh names to look out for joining the new season.
As well as new female lead Kate Sharma (Sex Education’s Simone Ashley), who is the love interest of Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran) and their mother Lady Mary Sharma (Shelley Conn).
Netflix posted the new pictures on Twitter, writing: ‘Calling all Bridgerton fans, The Sharma Family has officially arrived thanks to these brand new photos from Season 2.’
The images show the whole family dressed in their finery, as well as Kate enjoying a romantic meeting with Anthony in upcoming scenes.
Consider us excited.
It comes after the streaming giant offered a first glimpse of the new season of Bridgerton, with a sneak peek at a conversation between season two’s central character Anthony and Kate – the same one captured in the new images.
The first pictures from the set of season two were seen in May and showed the characters enjoying what appeared to be a raucous day at the races, with Anthony and Kate sat side by side.
Penelope Featherington star Nicole Coughlan recently teased that Bridgerton will be even ‘spicier’ when it returns with the new season.
Speaking about her character, Derry Girls actress Nicola continued to Entertainment Tonight: ‘I feel like the Bridgerton world has grown and you’re going to see a lot more sides to her. She’s a sassy chick.’
