‘Bridgerton’ is coming back for season 2: The best fan reactions
Lady Whistledown is making a return to Netflix! That’s right, Bridgerton has officially been renewed for season 2. We’re already planning Bridgerton watch parties where we dress up in corsets and adopt all the mannerisms from the ton.
Here are all the details about season 2 including some fan reactions that perfectly capture our reactions.
Return to the ton
We’ve been waiting for this . . . turn it up! Bridgerton is returning with season 2 and we can’t express how excited we are for this news. Our love of regency dramas was already solid with Sanditon, but Bridgerton proved we’re obsessed! (Also, please renew Sanditon while you’re at it.)
We all received a special edition of Lady Whistledown’s gossip sheet which broke the news to fans. It also looks like they aren’t slowing down and riding the Bridgerton hype. “The incomparable cast of Bridgerton will return to production in Spring 2021,” Lady Whistledown shared. We’re already imagining which popular songs they’ll remake.
All the details
In season 1, we focused on Daphne Bridgerton & the Duke of Hastings as they fell madly in love again and again . . . (hello, episode 6!) If Shonda Rhimes follows the books that the show is based on then this season will focus on Daphne’s brother Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey). It also looks like the cast from season 1 will stick around and we’re beyond delighted to see their faces in another season of drama, romance, and gossip.
Now, we get to see Anthony find his great love interest (or has he already) and hopefully get the happy ending he rightfully deserves. The books have been a major talking point and we can only hope eight seasons of Bridgerton is on the cards.
Casting is currently underway for new roles including for the female romantic lead opposite Anthony Bridgerton in Julia Stiles’s book The Viscount Who Loved Me, Kate Sheffield. Season 2 was teased by Anthony at the end of season 1 when he told Daphne he was “finding and promptly declaring my intentions to my new viscountess.”
We also would love Penelope & Eloise to find some happiness and perhaps more tea being spilled by Whistledown? What have fans thought about the latest announcement?
“Season 2 is coming” followed by hot Anthony spread on the bed. 👏 The announcement I am here for! 🔥🔥 #Bridgerton #bridgertonnetflix https://t.co/9PjTJEKqho

We love Daphne and the Duke, but we love that season 2 will give us more Anthony screen time. Bridgerton is providing us the perfect escape from our current situation.

Kermit the frog is reacting exactly how we did when we heard the news from Lady Whistledown. All we want is more Eloise alongside the all-important Anthony.

Alexa, play the Bridgerton musical. Please save Sanditon too, Netflix. We need a second season of this Jane Austen adaptation!
I hope you guys don’t exclude the Hastings from Season 2 pic.twitter.com/LfVqMitNef

We do require some more “burn for you” moments. This ship is one of the best things from Bridgerton season 1 and we need our dose of the Hastings.
