The new Shonda Rhimes-produced series, which premiered on December 25, was adapted from the Julia Quinn romance novels and stars Phoebe Dynevor, Regé-Jean Page, Jonathan Bailey, Golda Rosheuvel, and Julie Andrews as Lady Whistledown.
Based on initial reactions, it’s safe to say the series has taken viewers by surprise with its Gossip Girl-meets-Pride & Prejudice-meets-a little Fifty Shades of Grey vibes. So much so, that fans are desperate for any information regarding a potential new season.
Without spoiling anything, the season finale left us with lots of questions that only more episodes could answer. But will there be a Bridgerton season 2? Well, dear readers, here’s everything we know:
Bridgerton has not been renewed for a second season…yet. While Season 2 has not been officially announced, it’s very likely we can expect more of Daphne and Simon after fans discovered Production Weekly (via What’s on Netflix) listed the show as being renewed back in February. In fact, filming was reportedly scheduled to begin in July 2020 but it had to be pushed to March 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The cast wants to return. Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington in the series, recently told Radio Times, “I feel like we’ve established this big world, so I’d love to explore more of it.”
She also added, “I’d love to go on that journey with her, to see how she’s changed. I’d really love to come back, because I feel like we’ve just scratched the surface. And because there’s such a huge cast in this show, there’s so much more of all the characters.”
The Duke of Hastings himself also told Oprah Mag he’d “absolutely” want to explore more of the Bridgerton world.
“I think there a lot of good stories to be told in this world,” Page said. “There’s a plethora of characters and each of those characters has cousins, uncles, and dogs, and I think people enjoy exploring all of those depths and nooks and crannies.”
The show’s second season won’t be available any time soon, though. Much like The Crown, Bridgerton has a lengthy filming schedule, which means fans will likely have to wait until at least 2022 for Netflix to drop new episodes.
