Bridgerton has dominated the top ten watchlists throughout the world since its release on Netflix on Christmas Day 2020. The show is a sensuous, emotional, and scandalous vision of life in Regency-era London, created by Shondaland and based on Julia Quinn’s bestselling books. In March 2022, Netflix will release the second season.
The sitcom chronicles the Bridgerton family, which includes eight siblings and their mother, with an emphasis on their romantic relationships and household issues. Season one sees Daphne, the eldest Bridgerton girl, make her social debut. Despite being dubbed the “Belle of the Season,” she receives no proposals at first. She and the handsome Duke of Hastings ‘fake’ a romance in order to make herself more appealing to potential husbands.
They don’t always see eye to eye, so they’re not sure they’ll be able to convince the Ton of their love.
The program has become Netflix’s most popular series. In the first 30 days, 82 million households watched the series, up from the original estimate of 63 million.
From the beginning, it was evident that there would never be just one season of Bridgerton. The fact that the show is based on a book series is a dead giveaway.
We initially learnt that Bridgerton season 2 was in the works back in February 2020, with filming set to start later that year. Given the state of the globe, that was put on hold.
Netflix offered Bridgerton fans the present of revealing the release date for the second season on Christmas Day 2021.
On Friday, March 25th, 2022, Netflix will release Bridgerton season 2 in the United States.
The same press release that revealed the season 2 release date also revealed some details about what to anticipate in season 2.
After splitting up with his opera singer mistress at the end of season one, the oldest Bridgerton appears to be caught in the middle of a love triangle in season two. According to the brief explanation above, things are about to get filthy.
Fans will be relieved to learn that Daphne and Simon (a.k.a. the Duke of Hastings) will not be leaving the show. We can expect to see the couple settle into married life and fatherhood in season 2 after welcoming their first kid in a ‘flash-forward’ at the end of season 1. We wish the pair nothing but sunshine and flowers from now on, but it wouldn’t be very dramatic.
We also witnessed the reappearance of Francesca Bridgerton, the third youngest sibling, towards the close of season one. The young woman was away for the majority of the season, spending time with her extended Bridgerton family in Bath, England (a popular holiday destination during the Regency).
