NETFLIX has finally announced the release date for the noteworthy period drama Bridgerton.
The series had fans gripped when it first aired and now it’s back for more!
When is Bridgerton season 2 on Netflix?
It was announced the second series will be made available to Netflix subscribers on March 25, 2022.
Bridgerton has been a massive hit for Netflix since the Shonda Rhimes-produced romance series dropped on the streaming site.
The show is based on a series of eight books and the second series will focus on Lord Anthony.
Each book focuses on a different Bridgerton sibling, so with this in mind we could have seven more seasons of the show.
Ahead of the premiere, Netflix distributed a teaser trailer for fans to view on March 9 – which led to fan speculation regarding what will take place during season two.
What happened in Bridgerton season 1?
WARNING: Contains MAJOR spoilers from Bridgerton season one.
Events took a dark turn in the season finale when Lord Featherington was murdered for rigging a boxing match.
In happier news, Daphne Bridgerton and her new husband the Duke of Hastings welcomed their first child, despite him being previously determined to never have any children.
And, of course, the most important thing was gossip writer Lady Whistledown was unveiled as Penelope Featherington.
However, her readers are still none-the-wiser to her identity – the big reveal was just for viewers.
What is Bridgerton season 2 about?
The second book in the Bridgerton series is called The Viscount Who Loved Me.
The official description of the book reads: “The season has opened for the year of 1814, and there is little reason to hope that we will see any noticeable change from 1813.
“The ranks of society are once again filled with Ambitious Mamas, whose only aim is to see their Darling Daughters married off to Determined Bachelors.
“Discussion amongst the Mamas fingers Lord Bridgerton as this year’s most eligible catch, and indeed, if the poor man’s hair looks ruffled and windblown, it is because he cannot go anywhere without some young miss batting her eyelashes with such vigour and speed as to create a breeze of hurricane force.
“Perhaps the only young lady not interested in Lord Bridgerton is Miss Katharine Sheffield, and in fact, her demeanour toward the viscount occasionally borders on the hostile.
“And that is why, Dear Reader, This Author feels a match between Anthony Bridgerton and Miss Sheffield would be just the thing to enliven an otherwise ordinary season. – Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers, 13 April 1814.”
