Netflix Has Officially Renewed ‘Bridgerton’ For Season 2, So Lady Whistledown Needs To Get Writing Netflix

I’ll admit that I was late to the Bridgerton party — I only finished watching the first season last week. However, once I did finally sit down to tune in, I loved it. It had the perfect combination of drama, sexiness, and humor to keep me engaged throughout and made me really want to see more. Luckily, Netflix just renewed Bridgerton for Season 2, and production is due to start soon!

  1. Season 2 of Bridgerton is changing gears a bit. Most of Season 1 was all about the courtship and drama (and sex!) between Simon and Daphne, but Season 2 is going to shift just slightly, according to reports. This time around, we’ll be focusing a bit more on Anthony and his search for a wife, according to a Lady Whistledown note that’s been circulating online.
  2. Production is due to start this spring. According to the Lady herself, “The incomparable cast of Bridgerton will return to production in the Spring of 2021. This author has been reliably informed that Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season. I will have my pen ready to report on any and all of his romantic activities.” I, for one, can’t wait! Anthony did always seem like a bit of a tool, but he started to grow on me by the end of Season 1.
  3. Bridgerton has been one of the most successful shows in Netflix history. While it only dropped on Christmas Day, it was later revealed that it was watched by 63 million households within its first 28 days of release. That’s pretty successful, I’d say. Something tells me Season 2 will do just as well.
  4. There are lots more stories to be told on the show. Series creator Chris Van Dusen teased Season 2 to Collider a couple of weeks ago, saying, “I feel like the first season was primarily about Daphne and her love story with Simon. But, this being a family of eight children and there being eight books, I would love to be able to focus and really tell stories and love stories for all the Bridgerton siblings. For each character, for sure.” Potentially, that could mean eight seasons of Bridgerton, right? “I would love that. In success, I would love that.”
