Filming for the next season began earlier this year in the United Kingdom but was temporarily paused due to COVID-19. The release date for the second season of Netflix’s hit television series “Bridgerton” has been revealed.
According to sources, the highly anticipated new season will launch on March 25, 2022, after filming concluded earlier this year.
While it is no longer news that one of the show’s fan-favorite performers, Regé-Jean Page, will not be returning for the second season, the Shonda Rhimes historical period series will star Phoebe Dynevor, who played Daphne and Simon’s (Pagelove) interest in the first season.
The second season will focus on “The Viscount Who Loved Me,” the second of Julia Quinn’s “Bridgerton” books. The narrative will follow Daphne’s elder brother, Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), as he decides to settle down and find a bride.
The first season of ‘Bridgerton’ launched to instant success in December 2020 and soon soared to become one of Netflix’s most viewed shows (a record that has since been surpassed by the Korean series ‘Squid Game’).
Netflix has also announced the addition of a third and fourth season in the future years.
