‘Bridgerton’ Season 2 | News, Release Date, Cast, Spoilers

Name a more interesting hook for a TV series than “a very feminist, very steamy take on the strict social mores of early 19th century London, all narrated by an unseen gossip hound voiced by Julie Andrews”—I dare you. That’s Bridgerton, Shonda Rhimes’ first project under her massive Netflix deal, which dropped Dec. 25, 2020 and basically combines all the best parts of Pride & Prejudice and Gossip Girl. It quickly became Netflix’s biggest hit ever, with 82 million households watching the show in its first month. For context, that’s not far off the Super Bowl (around 100 million households per year).

Some people—certainly not me, but surely someone with less obsessive tendencies and more varied taste in TV—might think that eight and a half hours of longing glances, illicit affairs, empire-waist dresses, and queenly proclamations would be more than enough to satisfy any lover of period dramas. To those people, I say: I’ve got a Regency-era-dramedy-induced fever, and the only prescription is more Bridgerton. Fortunately for us all, a second season of the Shondaland masterpiece is coming—it’s already started filming in England (more on that in a moment)—with seasons three and four already confirmed and being planned out by the geniuses over at Shondaland, in addition to a Queen Charlotte limited prequel series.

Has Bridgerton been renewed for a second season?
