Bridgerton is the popular romance drama series streaming on Netflix now. The series is based on the Bridgerton books by Julia Quinn and the first instalment followed the eldest daughter, Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor). In the first season, Daphne formed an unlikely relationship with Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page) and now a second season has been announced.
When is Bridgerton season 2 out?
Fans will be delighted to hear the scandalous Shonda Rhimes drama has officially been renewed for a second season.
Not only is Bridergton coming back for one more outing, but Netflix has also officially renewed the drama for a third and fourth series.
The second season will see the eldest Bridgerton sibling Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) find love as it plans to draw inspiration from The Viscount Who Loved Me.
Filming will take place in the UK this spring and casting is already underway to find an actress to play Anthony’s love interest, Kate Sheffield.
There is no official release date yet but fans can hope for another Christmas release, providing there are no complications amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The news was revealed in the form of a society paper by the notorious Lady Whistledown.
Lady Whistledown’s letter said: “I do hope you have stored a bottle of ratafia for this most delightful occasion.
“The incomparable cast of Bridgerton will return to production in the spring of 2021. This author has been reliably informed that Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season.
“I will have my pen ready to report on any and all of his romantic activities.”
Fans fell in love with the series which has been described as being in the same vein as Gossip Girl.
Hopefully they will be able to see new episodes by the end of 2021 and Express.co.uk will update this story as more news comes to light.
Chris Van Dusen, showrunner for the series, told NBC: “We are going to be starting filming later this spring in London, and we’re all so excited. I know the cast cannot wait to get back to it, and neither can I.”
Who will be in the cast of Bridgerton season 2?
As Lady Whistledown suggested, the second instalment will focus on Anthony Bridgerton, the eldest sibling.
This means Bailey will reprise his role as the star of the show, and the other Bridgerton siblings will return.
Fans should be able to see more of Dynevor and Page as Daphne and the Duke and Claudia Jessie, Luke Thompson and Adjoa Andoh are likely to return as Eloise, Benedict and Lady Danbury respectively.
Now fans know Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) is the real face behind Lady Whistledown, she should be returning.
They will hopefully see Luke Newton return as Colin Bridgerton however his character did leave to go travelling at the end of the first season.
A new actress will be cast to play Anthony’s romantic lead as mentioned previously.

Is there a trailer for Bridgerton season 2?
Sadly as news of the new season has only just come to light there is no official trailer just yet.
Fans are unlikely to see a trailer before the end of the year as production is yet to get underway.
In the meantime they can keep up with all the latest gossip and scandal via the Bridgerton social media channels.
Lady Whistledown is always keen to update her followers with the latest news.
The official Twitter account shared a clip from the series with the message: “Prepare for another social season. Bridgerton is returning for season two, only on Netflix.”
What will happen in Bridgerton season 2?
At the end of the first season Anthony found himself to be unlucky in love once again, after he was turned down by Siena Rosso (Sabrina Bartlett).
Knowing they were from two different worlds and could never be together, Siena quite literally closed the door in Anthony’s face when it came to their relationship.
Anthony was heard telling Daphne he was ready to up his game and settle down, so the second season will follow his plight to find love.
He has someone in mind, but he ends up falling for his suitor’s older sister Kate Sheffield.
Kate makes it her mission to stop the wedding between her sister and Anthony and in the process, Anthony discovers unwanted feelings for Kate.
