Attention lords, ladies, and variations thereupon: Bridgerton returns in March. And today Netflix revealed a new first look at season 2.
The period romance series from executive producer Shonda Rhimes adapts the popular novels by Julia Quinn. Following the example set by the novels, each season of the series will focus on the romance of a different Bridgerton family member. For season 2, we’re following Lord Anthony’s quest for love.
The new season will see the eldest Bridgerton sibling and Viscount set out to find a suitable wife. Driven by his duty to uphold the family name, Anthony’s search for a debutante who meets his impossible standards seems ill-fated until Kate (Simone Ashley) and her younger sister Edwina (Charithra Chandran) Sharma arrive from India. When Anthony begins to court Edwina, Kate discovers the true nature of his intentions — a true love match is not high on his priority list — and decides to do everything in her power to stop the union. But in doing so, Kate and Anthony’s verbal sparring matches only bring them closer together, complicating matters on both sides. Across Grosvenor Square, the Featheringtons must welcome the newest heir to their estate while Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) continues to navigate the ton whilst keeping her deepest secret from the people closest to her.
