Brand new ‘Bridgerton’ trailer promises ‘considerable scandal indeed’

Netflix has unveiled an epic trailer for the upcoming second season of Bridgerton.

The hit period drama romance series debuted Christmas 2020, based on the bestselling novels by Julia Quinn.

Bridgerton picked up positive reviews and soon became one of Netflix’s biggest shows ever.

Season 2 started filming in England last summer and at last the wait is almost over!

With Daphne and Simon’s story concluding at the end of Season 1, the eight upcoming 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.

Following a few inevitable Covid-related setbacks, the Bridgerton cast wrapped production a few months ago and a release date for Season 2 was recently announced.

The first teaser trailer arrived online last month, and today Netflix unveiled a glorious brand new extended trailer.

Featuring three minutes of tantalising footage from Season 2 – including what is surely a deliberate tribute to Colin Firth’s iconic lake scene in 1995’s Pride & Prejudice adaptation – we’re told that “true love is worth it.”

In the words of Lady Whistledown: “What happens when duty is in conflict with the heart’s true desire? There is potential for a considerable scandal, indeed.”

Season 2 premieres on Friday 25th March, exclusively on Netflix.

The whole first season is already available to stream on Netflix.
