‘Bridgerton’ return date revealed: When does Season 2 premiere?

Netflix has announced when the new season of Bridgerton will begin.

Based on the bestselling novels by Julia Quinn, Netflix’s period drama romance premiered exactly a year ago on Christmas Day 2020.

Bridgerton received positive reviews from critics and shot straight to the top of the most-viewed chart on Netflix.

Having become one of the streaming service’s biggest shows ever, it was quickly renewed for another season earlier this year.

Filming on Season 2 kicked off this summer in England.

Despite a few inevitable Covid-related setbacks, Bridgerton creator Chris Van Dusen confirmed last month that production on the new episodes was finished!

Bridgerton follows eight close-knit siblings as they look for love and happiness in Regency London high society in early 1800s England.

The second season will focus on the efforts of Anthony Bridgerton, played Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch), to find himself a wife.

Also reprising their roles are Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Bassett (née Bridgerton), Ruth Gemmell as Violet Bridgerton, Claudia Jessie as Eloise Bridgerton, Luke Newton as Colin Bridgerton, Luke Thompson as Benedict Bridgerton, Polly Walker as Portia Featherington, Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte, Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury, Harriet Cains as Philippa Featherington, Bessie Carter as Prudence Featherington, and Julie Andrews as the voice of Lady Whistledown.

Marking the anniversary of Season 1’s debut, a video was unveiled today officially revealing the launch date for Season 2:

 

Netflix announced: “Bridgerton premiered one year ago today – Happy Anniversary, dear readers.

“To commemorate the occasion, Lady Whistledown has gotten her readers a very special gift: Bridgerton Season 2 shall premiere on March 25th, 2022, only on Netflix.”
