As an apology for the pun, please enjoy a first look at the new season, which Netflix revealed Saturday at its(that’s tuh-dum, named for the streamer’s signature opening tone). It looks like Anthony may have met his match in Kate Sharma…
Bridgerton comes from master producer Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy) and is based on Julia Quinn’s novels. In April, Netflix revealed that heartthrob Page, who played Simon Bassett AKA the Duke of Hastings, wouldn’t return for season 2.
At Tudum the cast discussed the phenomenal success of the show, Anthony Bridgerton’s sideburns, celebrity fans and the fact a different ending was originally shot before Lady Whistledown was revealed.
To get hearts throbbing again, season 2 will steer focus to Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), aka Viscount Bridgerton, older brother of Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor). It’ll draw inspiration from the second book in the Bridgerton series, in which the eldest Bridgerton son becomes entangled in a love triangle. Sounds like Lady Whistledown will have her work cut out for her in reporting the new season’s romantic activities.
Movies coming in 2021 and 2022 from Netflix, Marvel, HBO and more
