Great news, Bridgerton fans! Netflix just renewed the romantic period drama for a second season.

Read the full announcement from Netflix – excuse me, from Lady Whistledown – below.

Dearest Readers,

The ton are abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honor to impart to you: Bridgerton shall officially return for a second season. I do hope you have stored a bottle of ratafia for this most delightful occasion.

According to Lady Whistledown’s formal letter, Bridgerton will begin production on season 2 this spring. But don’t expect many more details to be forthcoming. As the letter says, patience is a virtue.

Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market. Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled. But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) casts aspersions on Daphne. 

Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas. Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable. Sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.

Fans have described Bridgerton as a mashup of media like Pride & Prejudice, Gossip Girl, and Outlander. The drama marks Netflix’s first Shondaland production.

And hopefully, this Bridgerton renewal will be just the first of many for the series. The show adapts the bestselling novels by Julia Quinn. Since there are eight books in the series – and season one of Bridgerton adapted the first – fans have speculated the show could see an eight-season run.

So, are you excited for season 2 of Bridgerton? Hoping it’s part 2 of 8? Let us know in the comments.
