Bridgerton Season 2: Everything You Need to Know About the Netflix Hit

Well, that’s all right. Thank you, Netflix. This is what you’ve done with “The Duke and I,” a historical romance novel by Julia Quinn that you say is the most-watched episodic television series on Netflix ever. (There were 82 million households that filled out the survey, which is a flimsy metric but acceptable!)

So, what’s the next logical step? Seven more books have been published in the series thus far, one for each Bridgerton child. They are not ordered alphabetically, however, and Shonda Rhimes, the super producer behind “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal,” has acquired rights to adapt them for the small screen. The next book in the series is “The Viscount Who Loved Me,” which comes out in chronological order. What can we expect from Season 2 of “Bridgerton” after the first season’s adherence to the book’s outline? See for yourself in the images below:

Who will the Focus of Season 2 be?

Isn’t this arrogant older sibling just adorable? The second season of “Bridgerton” will centre on the love storey of Viscount Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), as was widely hinted at in Season 1. “Lord Anthony Bridgerton plans to dominate the social season,” Lady Whistledown said in an Instagram post introducing the second season. “The Viscount Who Loved Me” is, in fact, the sequel to “The Viscount.” It’s all connected!

Is Lady Whistledown going to be mentioned?

Spoilers follow! If you’re not sure, scroll down to find out!

Surely they must, don’t they? Book 4 of the series holds the Season 1 finale bombshell that Penelope Featherington is Lady Whistledown. An interview with actress Nicola Coughlan, filled with all kinds of juicy details, can be found here. Is it unavoidable that other tales from Book 4 will also be included in Season 2 because the time frame of the reveal was moved up? Anthony and Kate may have to spend the season with Penelope and Colin Bridgerton, her long-sought-after love interest. We’ll have to wait and see.

Edmund Bridgerton is a character we should expect to see more of in Season 2. There’s a third one, too? Yes, but he’s already gone. (SPOILER ALERT!) After his father Edmund’s death, Anthony becomes control of the household in Season 1. Rupert Evans (“The Man in the High Castle”) was confirmed in May as Edmund’s actor in what we think will be a flashback? So the audience needs to know how he dies, doesn’t it? In Season 1, if you pay attention, you’ll see it.

Showrunner Chris Van Dusen met with Phoebe Dynevor.

So, when can we expect the release of ‘Bridgerton’ Season 2?

Netflix will air the second season (without the Duke of Hastings a.k.a. Regé-Jean Page) on March 25. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Chris Van Dusen said that following up on the “surreal” viral hit of Season 1 proved to be more “difficult” than he expected.

I had a very clear concept for Season 1 and I was given the flexibility to carry it out,” Van Dusen added. Once the show premiered, it quickly became a global phenomenon. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Keeping to my initial concept for Season 2 was more difficult, but it forced me to dig even deeper.”

But what if Season 2 isn’t ready for another year?

Art, and especially high-budget costume dramas, need time to develop. While you’re waiting, occupy yourself with some officially licenced Bridgerton memorabilia. Sweatshirts and hoodies with quotes from the performance may be purchased at Meena Harris’s Phenomenal Woman boutique (the niece of Vice President Kamala Harris). Wear it over your heart if you want to be entertained.

There are two new women in Anthony Bridgerton’s (Jonathan Bailey) life. Edie Chandran portrays a newly arrived Indian immigrant named Edwina, who is just in time for Anthony to notice her. However, when Edwina’s older sister Kate (Simone Ashley) learns of Anthony’s secret courtship plans, she swears to put an end to it. There is, however, a love triangle in the works: However, by interfering with Cupid, the verbal sparring bouts that ensue between Kate and Anthony only serve to further complicate matters for both parties. There is nothing we enjoy more than a well-executed twist!

“Anthony and his new love interest Kate Sharma are such a force to be reckoned with: magnetic, you cannot take your eyes off them when they’re together,” said creator Van Dusen.

In Sex Scenes, the “Female Gaze” Will Be Prioritized.

It’s about time, really! A statement from Jonathan Bailey, aka Viscount Bridgerton, to Entertainment Weekly stated that Season 2 will focus on female audiences.

It’s a common refrain: “Oh yeah, Bonkerton,” remarked Bailey. Because there are so many ways people communicate by sex and what sex means and what your body represents to someone else. When it comes to the depiction of sex, it’s crucial that sexuality is flipped on its head.”

Van Dusen, the film’s director, gave a preview of “thirsty” sequences to IndieWire.com. This beautiful, rich, and hedonistic environment was an ongoing current critique on the past 20 years,” says the director. Every aspect of life has altered and nothing has changed for both men and women.

A New Feminist Aspect of Gossip Has Been Emerging.

Lady Whistledown would have approved. Coughlan, who portrays Whistledown, explained that gossip was one of the few modalities of “agency” for women in the 19th century, and that it was a way for them to express themselves. According to Coughlan, “this was all they were good for,” therefore he said, “why be afraid to participate?”

The “bad impression of gossip is a misogynistic element to restrict women from communicating and sharing knowledge,” as new Season 2 cast member Charithra Chandran reiterated. Lady Whistledown is our rightful monarch, and we salute her.
