You are cordially invited to look at the very first images from Bridgerton season two.
Bridgerton season two went into production in spring 2021 but had to halt production in July following a COVID-19 outbreak on set. It resumed filming in August, and showrunner Chris Van Dusen confirmed that at least a few episodes were already in postproduction, which is promising. However, there still isn’t a premiere date. Given that we’re already seeing first looks, it’s probably coming in late 2021 or early 2022. The first season dropped on Netflix in December 2020, so maybe it will come around the same time, but at this point early 2022 is more likely.
Like the books the series is based on, Bridgerton will focus on a different Bridgerton sibling each season. Season two will turn its attention to Anthony Bridgerton and his quest for love.
“We’re very much passing on the baton to the lovely [Jonathan Bailey], who plays Anthony, and that will be the main storyline of season two and the story arc of season two,” said Phoebe Dynevor, who plays Daphne Bridgerton, per Us Weekly.
While Dynevor will remain on the series unlike her costar Page, her role will be reduced from season one. “The show centers around the Bridgertons, and there are eight books,” she said. “And I think maybe the fans of the books were more aware of that happening than the fans of the show.”
Simone Ashley from Netflix’s Sex Education will play Kate, a love interest for Anthony.
