Good information: Netflix has renewed Bridgerton for a second season. But with their storyline wrapped up, will Simon Basset and Daphne Bridgerton be again?
Ever because it debuted on Christmas Day, the primary season of Bridgerton — a brand new Shondaland primarily based on writer Julia Quinn’s collection of bodice-rippers — has dominated, discovering tens of millions of followers looking forward to extra Regency-era romance.
The difficulty is that the primary season neatly wrapped up the romantic arcs of the primary characters — Duke of Hastings Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) and Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) — fairly neatly. But by no means worry: there are eight books in Quinn’s Bridgerton collection, every specializing in the love lifetime of a distinct Bridgerton sibling. Next up is Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), the main target of the ebook The Viscount Who Loved Me. He will likely be on the heart of season 2, which Netflix introduced through an invite from Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) herself:
Considering what a success Bridgerton has been for Netflix, a second season was just about a given. But will Page and Dynevor return, not less than as supporting characters? “I hope so,” creator Chris Van Dusen instructed Deadline. “They are now of course the Duke and Duchess of Hastings but in my mind they will always be Bridgertons and I think they will always be part of the show.”
We have a bunch of latest characters we’re going to be introducing. Anthony goes to have a love curiosity subsequent season, and I believe it’s going to be as sweeping and shifting and as lovely as viewers of the primary season have come to anticipate from the present.
If Van Dusen has his approach, he’ll do a distinct season of Bridgerton for all eight of the siblings, however with season 2 attributable to begin taking pictures in London he late spring, he has extra speedy considerations, like methods to movie a present that features intercourse scenes and many extras beneath COVID-19 circumstances.
For now it’ll should be sufficient to know one other season is coming. Best of luck!
