Bridgerton won’t be coming back to our screens this Christmas but it’s sooner than you think as the release date has finally been announced.
Season one of Shonda Rhimes’ critically acclaimed period drama, starring debuted on Netflix last Christmas and became the most-streamed show on the streaming platform at the time.
Well, they won’t have to wait very long as it was announced on Christmas Day that Bridgerton season two will arrive on Netflix on March 25, 2022.
Confirming the very pleasing news, the series creator Shonda tweeted: ‘Prepare the carriages, dear reader. #Bridgerton is back on March 25, 2022!’
The Bridgerton cast also got involved with the announcement as Netflix released a clip featuring season two leads Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley, as well as Adjoa Andoh, Golda Rosheuvel, Claudia Jessie, Charithra Chandran and Luke Newton.
It sees the group receive a letter from Lady Whistledown for an announcement that even they didn’t know about.
Jonathan says: ‘Is that Whistledown? What’s she got to say today? The cheeky little mistress. It’s customary for a first anniversary to gift paper, dear readers.’
Jessie then replies as the release date is read aloud: ‘I actually didn’t know that!
Charithra chimes in: ‘I didn’t know that either.’
Season two recently wrapped filming with showrunner Chris Van Dusen sharing an Instagram post to mark the occasion.
He wrote: ‘That’s a wrap on Season Two! So proud of this cast and crew who brought their A-games to work each and every day in this very challenging year. And these two in this photo with me right here. Words are not enough. Coming in 2022.’
Much to everyone’s devastation, Rege-Jean will not be reprising his role as the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset, in season two as the next chapter will focus on another Bridgerton sibling, Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Bailey) and his quest to find a wife.
Bridgerton season two debuts on Netflix on March 25, 2022.
