Bridgerton Season 2: Plot details, release date, and more

Bridgerton Season 2 is officially happening on Netflix.

Considering the incredible numbers it received and how it has dominated the internet throughout the past month, it’s not too surprising that Bridgerton Season 2 was approved less than one month after the show’s premiere.

According to TVLine, Bridgerton Season 2 will focus on the second book in Julia Quinn’s wildly popular series.

What will Bridgerton Season 2 be about?

The second season will focus on Daphne’s eldest brother, Anthony Bridgerton. He is the star of the second book in the series, and it has been confirmed by series creator Chris Van Dusen on the Today show.

“We’re really going to be [focusing on] the eldest Bridgerton brother next season, Lord Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan Bailey. We left him at the end of the first season at a bit of a crossroads, so I’m looking forward to jumping in and discovering how he fares on the marriage market,” said Van Dusen.

The creator added that the new season would introduce lots of new characters and a new love interest for Anthony while also assuring fans that the new love story would be as “sweeping and moving and beautiful” as Daphne and Simon’s romance.

Will Daphne and Simon return?

Speaking of Daphne and Simon, since their story was already covered in Season 1 and will take a backseat moving forward, can we expect the lovebirds to return to the fray? Van Dusen addressed that too, adding that he hoped for the Duke and Duchess to reprise their roles. It sounds like if they do return, they’ll serve secondary roles instead of taking center stage as they did in the first season.

“In my mind, they will always be Bridgertons, and I think they will always be a part of the show,” he added.

When will Bridgerton Season 2 premiere?

Since Bridgerton initially debuted on Christmas last year, I would expect that the second season will follow suit. So long as things can stay on track amid the pandemic, I don’t see any reason why Bridgerton wouldn’t debut in December 2021 or January 2022 at the latest. It’s the perfect cozy series for the holiday season, so it’d be nice if Netflix kept it in the same spot.
