Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the television production company Shondaland, created Bridgerton which was released on Netflix on December 25th, 2020. The show was an instant hit, and it is coming back for a second season! Here's everything we know.
Bridgerton was actually released right in the midst of the pandemic, so people had more than enough time to stream the popular show. According to timeout.com, 82 million households watched the show in the matter of just a month!
The specifics of the storyline still haven't been released, but fans have extremely high expectations after such a fantastic first season!
However, what we do know is that it will be being released on Netflix March 25, 2022 globally.
According to timeout.com, the second season synopsis reads:
"The second season of Bridgerton shifts the focus to Lord Anthony, Viscount Bridgerton, the patriarch of the family. He’s utterly bored by the women who are presented to him… and love seems off the cards. Or is it? The beautiful Sharma sisters arrive from India and, lo, sparks may fly. As any dedicated Bridgertonian will tell you, the quest to find a suitable Viscountess is no easy one. Luckily, mysterious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, whose identity was season 1’s major reveal, will be there to give eager suitors a nudge in the right direction."The show is based on the collection of books by author Julia Quinn. Each book follows one Bridgerton family member as they go through the dramatic process of arranged marriages. The first novel was focused on Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dyvenor) and The Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). Fans were disappointed to find out that Regé-Jean Page would not be returning for season two.
