Bridgerton: 5 Things We Know About Season 2

Netflix’s first season of Bridgerton was a massive success and the royalties are back for another drama-filled sequel. Fans can expect a more plot-driven story full of intriguing characters in Regency-era costumes. With the revelation of Lady Whistledown and the upcoming weddings, there will be a lot of gripping scenes.

The second season will premiere on March 25th this year and fans all over the world could not wait any longer. But fret no more because we got you covered! Here are some of the things we know about the second installment of Netflix’s Bridgerton:

Duke Of Hastings Isn’t Coming Back

Simon Basset

It is truly disappointing news but Simon Basset, played by Regé-Jean Page, won’t be coming back to reprise his role. Indeed, the entire fandom sympathizes with Daphne Bridgerton. Simon has been a fan favorite because of his tragic, dark backstory. And, of course, let’s admit it, his oozing appeal and smoldering looks.

Bridgerton’s official Twitter page made the announcement. The main reason for the actor leaving the show is because Julia Quinn’s succeeding novels focused less on the Duke of Hastings. Hence, Page only signed up for one season.

Penelope Featherington Will Have Romance This Time

She is always the bridesmaid but never the bride, but this time, she will have her shot at her long-awaited romance! Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton’s relationship has been a roller coaster of emotions, and fans can hope for a more exciting twist this second season.

Actress Nicola Coughlan spilled that the jokes they made on set usually become part of the show. She says everyone teases her that she’s going to kiss Luke on the lips! Now fans of the two characters will have something to look forward to.

Introduction Of The Sharma Family

There are so many royal families to get to know in the show and apparently, the creators have made room for another important one. The Sharma family (also known as the Sheffields) will enter the scene and prove their worth in society.

The Sharmas are not to be messed with; they are as powerful and influential as the other families. Kate Sharma, portrayed by Simone Ashley, will play a major role in the lives of the Bridgertons, especially Anthony. The sisters will definitely astound everyone when they finally enter the scene.

It Will Be A Visual Delight

The show has always been a visual feast for the eyes, from the royal costumes to the Regency-inspired interior designs. The sumptuous aesthetic of the show paired with elegant language is a Jane Austen-like dream for all fans of this era.

Image stills released on various social media accounts showed a lot of grandeur and sophisticated looks. Indeed, the sequel is going to be another drama extravaganza!

More Drama, More Scandal

Speaking of drama, Bridgerton gave the fans a lot of insane moments in the first season. From scandalous gossip to lovemaking in the library, there will be more spectacular scenes in Season 2. The Lady Whistledown actress revealed, “We’re shooting all those big dramatic scenes for the end. It’s exhausting but very satisfying.”
