Netflix has finally released a trailer for the new season of Bridgerton.
Bridgerton received positive reviews and quickly became one of Netflix’s biggest shows ever, topping the streaming service’s most-viewed chart.
The show was promptly renewed for another season and filming began in England last summer.
Production wrapped successfully in November, despite a few inevitable Covid-related setbacks, and a release date for Season 2 was recently confirmed.
Bridgerton follows eight close-knit siblings as they look for love and happiness in the sexy, lavish, and competitive world of Regency London high society.
The official synopsis reads: “From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground.”
With Daphne and Simon’s story concluding at the end of Season 1, this year’s episodes will be focusing 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.

Bridgerton showrunner Chris Van Dusen hinted last year that he can see the show running for eight seasons!
He told Collider: “I feel like the first season was primarily about Daphne and her love story with Simon. But, this being a family of eight children and there being eight books, I would love to be able to focus and really tell stories and love stories for all the Bridgerton siblings. For each character, for sure.”
Hinting at what to expect in the second season, Van Dusen teased: “We really dig into Anthony’s love story. We’re really exploring Benedict as well, and Collin, and Eloise relationship. I think it’s a deep well of story for us to explore.”
Julia Quinn’s series of Bridgerton novels were published between 2000 and 2013, and her books have been translated nearly 30 different languages.
The Bridgerton novels are available on Amazon.
