Bridgerton is returning for season two
Exciting news Bridgerton fans! Season two will soon be released on Netflix. Here's all the drama you need to know including the trailer, cast and new photos as we prepare to binge our favourite period show.
Bridgerton series two is coming out in a matter of days on Netflix and we'll finally get to see what's in store for the Bridgerton family after Daphne [Phoebe Dynevor] found love in series one with The Duke [Regé Jean Page], and her brother is now taking the focus on his own quest for romance.
In a slight shift of storyline, season 2 will focus on Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan Bailey, as he promenades through Regency London in search of a wife – a storyline we've just been introduced to after the first official trailer (which you can watch below) was released two weeks before the release date.
Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming second season of Bridgerton, including new cast members, the official trailer, new series photos and much more:
It's the moment you've been waiting for... Here is the official trailer for Bridgerton Season 2, arriving 25 March only on Netflix. pic.twitter.com/0jzn4733B9— Netflix UK & Ireland (@NetflixUK) March 9, 2022
Days away from Bridgerton series 2, Netflix released the official trailer (above) showing Anthony Bridgerton's quest to find love and future wife. We also finally meet new cast member Simone Ashley who joins as Kate Sharma, Anthony's love interest – despite being told to court her sister.
The trailer also gives us glimpses of the fancy balls, Bridgerton family drama and of course, Lady Whistledown's infamous columns.
Bridgerton season two is coming out on Netflix on 25 March. The cast wrapped on filming in late November after production began in spring 2021!
Series one dropped on Christmas Day 2020, so fans haven't had too long to wait for their fix of high society London.
Lady Whistledown, the show's iconic gossip columnist, made the announcement on Twitter, with a photo of a letter addressed to “dearest readers.”
It reads: “Esteemed members of the Ton, it seems we have a rather special announcement. Bridgerton shall return for seasons three and four.
“This author shall have to purchase more ink.
We know the whole Bridgerton family will be back in the cast for season two, as the story will focus on Anthony Bridgerton, Daphne's older brother played by Jonathan Bailey.
Therefore we'll see Claudia Jessie back as Eloise, Ruth Gemmell as Lady Violet, and Luke Thompson as Benedict.
It has been announced that Regé-Jean Page will not reprise his role as the Duke of Hastings which caused quite the upset online to dedicated fans. However, Phoebe Dynevor will continue portraying the Duchess, Daphne Bridgerton.
Julie Andrews will of course return to voice Lady Whistledown and it wouldn't be a scandalous society without the Featheringtons, so we'll likely see Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope, her mother Lady Portia (Polly Walker), and distant cousin Marina (Ruby Barker) back for season two.
New cast members will also be joining the series, with the first announced as Sex Education's Simone Ashley who will play Anthony's love interest Kate Sharma.
The Bridgerton family's patriarch has also been cast, Rupert Evans will portray Violet's loving and devoted husband, Edmund Bridgerton.
