IT’S CONFIRMED! ‘BRIDGERTON’ IS BACK FOR SEASON TWO!
Written by Cheska Alferez
Make some noise! The long-awaited Bridgerton season two is finally confirmed by Netflix, Wednesday, January 21. ” Prepare for another social season! @Bridgerton shall be back for Season 2!” reads the post from Netflix’s official Twitter account.
Bridgerton is based on a series of bestselling romance novels by Julia Quinn, spanning from 2000 to 2003, with each book following a different Bridgerton sibling. The first season (and book) focused on Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor), the oldest Bridgerton daughter, and her romance with the aloof Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). The first season was released last month, December 2020.
The Shonda Rhimes’ production company also released it in the form of a letter written in the style of the show’s infamous, “Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers.” Julie Andrews is the one who voiced lady Whistledown’s mysterious and all-knowing narration.
“Dearest Readers,” Lady Whistledown wrote, “The ton are abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honor to impart to you: Bridgerton shall officially return for a second season. I do hope you have stored a bottle of ratafia for this most delightful occasion.”
According to the release, the second season will focus on the eldest Bridgerton sibling, Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey), who was a part of his sister’s affairs during season one.
“This author has been reliably informed that Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season,” as indicated by the release. “I will have my pen ready to report on any and all of his romantic activities.”
The release didn’t give any additional detail aside from those what was written in the letter, but please be reminded that “patience, after all, is a virtue.”
Production for season two is set to begin in London in the spring of 2021.
