Bridgerton season 2 release date and everything we know so far

Bridgerton – the glossy period drama with a modern twist – graced Netflix in late 2020 and it was excellent. Full of scandal, drama, sex and romance, it was the TV series that had us all hooked on Lady Whistledown’s detailing of the events from start to finish. 

The first series was inspired by Juila Quinn’s book – ‘The Duke and I’ – which is the first of eight so there is plenty of material to see us binge on Bridgerton for quite a while longer. Netflix has confirmed a season 2, 3 and 4 so far.

Here is everything we know so far about Bridgerton season 2 and when it will hit our screens.

Bridgerton season 2 release date: When is it out?

Netflix confirmed Bridgerton would see a season 2 on 21 January 2021, followed by confirming a season 3 and 4 on 13 April 2021.

It then confirmed on the one-year anniversary of the season one that Bridgerton season 2 would air on 25 March 2022.

How and where to watch Bridgerton season 2

When Bridgerton season 2 lands on 25 March 2022, it be on Netflix only. Unsurprising, given its a Netflix original series – and one of the biggest ones so far – so you’ll need to make sure you have your Netflix subscription ready.

How many episodes will there be in Bridgerton season 2?

Bridgerton season 1 had eight episodes so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see a similar number for season 2, though currently we don’t know.

Each episode is likely to be an hour long though, as they were in season 1 so we can hope for at least eight hours of more drama and Lady Whistledown reporting.

What is expected to happen in Bridgerton season 2

As mentioned, the first season of Bridgerton was inspired by Julia Quinn’s ‘The Duke and I’, which focused on the relationship between the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset, and the oldest of the Bridgerton daughter’s, Daphne Bridgerton. 

The second season is expected to be inspired by the second book, ‘The Viscount Who Loved Me‘. It will focus on eligible bachelor Anthony Bridgerton and a woman called Edwina Sharma. Though of course, nothing will be straightforward as that doesn’t make for good TV, so Edwina’s sister Kate will make sure Lady Whistledown has something to write about for her Society Papers.

Julia Quinn also told the BBC: “I’m just so excited because I know what’s in book two, having written it, and I think there are some scenes that are going to be so incredible and people are going to love.”

There may also be some news regarding Penelope Fetherington and Colin Bridgerton, known to some fans as “Polin”. Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope, tweeted a selfie of her and Luke Newton, who plays Colin. The tweet said “Polin: Year two” with a bee emoji that represents Quinn’s books, which has excited fans.

Who will be cast in Bridgerton season 2?

Well given season 2 is expected to be focused on Anthony Bridgerton, among others, we know Jonathan Bailey, who plays him, will be back. Most of the season one cast are also expected to return, including Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne and Lady Whistledown’s voiceover Julie Andrews. Nicola Coughlan, Claudia Jessie, and Adjoa Andoh are also expected to return.

Unfortunately, we won’t see the return of the Duke of Hastings, Rege-Jean Page, for the second season. At least not for a full season. The actor previously said he wasn’t returning to the show, though more recently didn’t rule out a cameo or guest appearance, skirting around the topic in an interview with GQ, saying “You know I couldn’t tell you!”, followed by “Isn’t there something wonderful about being surprised by what you weren’t suspecting?”.

Netflix has confirmed four new additions to the cast for the second season though: Charithra Chandran as Edwina Sharma, Shelley Conn as Edwina and Kate Sharma’s mum, Calam Lynch as Theo Sharpe and Rupert Young as Jack. Simone Ashley will play Kate Sharma.

Is there a trailer for Bridgerton season 2?

There’s not a trailer yet, though Netflix has released a First Look, which focuses on a brief conversation between Anthony Bridgerton and Edwina Sharma, giving us a taster of what we can expect from the two. It also confirmed the second season would arrive in 2022 before the second video that told us the official date.
