It’s officially official—Netflix has confirmed that Bridgerton will return to our screens for season two and honestly, we're crying a little bit. And given it was streamed to 63 million households worldwide within just 28 days of its debut, we're guessing you're all crying a bit too.
The news was announced the best way possible, via Lady Whistledown's society papers of course. The social oracle revealed that production for season two would commence in "Spring 2021" and also confirmed whispers that the latest series would centre on Lord Anthony Bridgerton's quest for true love—perhaps he might take some tips from his younger sister Daphne?
We can also confirm that Anthony's love interest Kate Sharman, will be played by Neflix's Sex Education star Simone Ashley.
Read the full announcement below:
The end of season one (warning: spoiler alert) saw Daphne and Simon AKA the Duke Of Hastings in wedded bliss, welcoming their first child together. Among other big revelations, like oldest brother Anthony deciding to finally take a wife and Marina marrying her baby daddy’s brother, we learnt the true identity of Lady Whistledown…
But that only left us with so many more questions and of course we’re lowkey hungry for more Daphne and Simon scenes. Thankfully, our prayers will be answered in the not so distant future with new eps expected to drop late this year or early 2022.
