The Bridgerton family is back for Bridgerton season 2! Bridgerton season 1 was a huge success, and we can’t wait to see what Bridgerton has in store for us this time around. We are so excited that Bridgertons’ new season will be available on Netflix from September 28th, 2016.
The cast of Bridgeton Season 2 includes the same actors as Bridgeton Season 1, but there are many new faces including Sebastian Stan who plays Alexei Sokolov – an ex-Russian diplomat with ties to British high society. This next installment promises all the heartwarming moments and witty banter that make up a typical Bridgeton novel series.
The Release Date of Bridgerton Season 2:
Filming for the first season took nine months, and that was in a pre-pandemic world. Given that the second season started filming in the spring of 2021, it’s likely to wrap in the fall or winter of 2021, meaning we’re most likely to see season two premiere in early to mid-2022.
The cast of Bridgerton Season 2:
- Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington
- Jonathan Bailey as Anthony Bridgerton
- Luke Newton as Colin Bridgerton
- Claudia Jessie as Eloise Bridgerton
- Luke Thompson as Benedict Bridgerton
- Ruth Gemmell as Lady Violet Bridgerton
- Polly Walker as Lady Portia Featherington
- Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury
- Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte
- Ruby Barker as Marina Thompson
- Jessica Madsen as Cressida Cowper
Will Daphne and Simon be in Bridgerton season 2?
Simon and Daphne are unlikely to return in season two. As previously revealed by friends of the couple, they’re now retired from acting and living abroad with their family.
While it’s too early for any concrete information about what might go down next year, there are a few things we can take away from last season: Anthony is still as charmingly rakish as ever; Colin has an eye for someone who doesn’t meet his usual standards (namely Lady Danbury).
Dynevor had previously said: “There’s no such thing as a happy ending, is there? I think love’s always shifting and changing. So who knows? I’d like to see what happens next. And also, I’d like to see Daphne get involved in Anthony’s love life since he was so involved in hers.”
What will Bridgerton season 2 be about?
In Bridgerton Season One, the series introduced us to all of the amazing members of this family. We saw Anthony’s marriage to Lady Danbury fall apart and his subsequent return to London in pursuit of a new love interest, Daphne Manners.
Colin finally found someone smart enough for him (Lady Diana) but was tragically not able to save her from an early death due to illness. The season ended with both brothers finding happiness together at last Anthony and Daphne reunited after years spent being star-crossed lovers.
Colin married Fanny Dashwood who is expecting their first child just as soon as they can get an annulment from Father James’ sister.
When asked about how long they had known that season two was happening and if it would air in 2020 or 2021, Rachel Wilson who plays Fanny Dashwood said “No comment.”
Perhaps the story begins earlier? Or perhaps there are lots of flashback scenes – or even a whole flashback episode?
In addition, season two will hopefully pick up where things left off with several plots and sub-plots. The Bridgerton season one finale certainly leaves plenty of unanswered questions, and hints at more to come – with the voiceover from “Lady Whistledown”.
How many seasons of Bridgerton will there be?
Showrunner Chris Van Dusen has already suggested that there could be eight seasons in total.
Speaking to TVLine, showrunner Chris Van Dusen confirmed that the season two finale would be “a cliffhanger”. He also said: “We have a plan for what happens in eight seasons.”
The first episode may follow Fanny and her sisters on their journey back from London to stay with Lady Bridgerton’s mother, as well as their time there before they return home again – but we can’t share anything else just yet! The second series is set during 1814-1815; three years after the events of Season One.
