However much we love Bridgerton, it continues to sadden us. Previously, Bridgerton’s breakout Rege-Jean Page revealed that he would not be returning for the new season. And now sources claim that Bridgerton season 2 won’t be back in 2021. Could it be any sadder? We’re already grieving the pandemic, and now our favorite period piece will be releasing its second installment sometime in the future.
Fans of the show were not happy with the announcement. But, don’t worry. Netflix and Bridgerton have planned a long trip with their fans. Now that season 2 is on hold, fans are rushing to the internet for all the details about season 2.
Bridgerton is an American streaming television series. The period romantic drama comes from Shonda Rhimes, best known for the hit series, Grey’s Anatomy. Chris Van Dusen is in the role of creator, and the series is based on a series of novels set in the District of London era by Julia Quinn. Bridgerton marks the first project of the deal between Shonda Rhimes and Netflix.
The series debuted in December 2020 with eight episodes. After premiering weeks in 82 million households, Bridgerton has become the most-watched series on streamers. Also, it still holds the title. So, we can definitely understand the hype. Fans are looking forward to watching season 2.
So, when does Bridgerton season 2 come out?
Bridgerton Season 2 Release Date
Bridgerton Season 2 release date is currently unknown. Recently, Netflix released a list of shows that will come out with new seasons in the second half of 2021. During a phone call with shareholders, Netflix announced the main details about their upcoming projects and their scheduling plans. However, Bridgerton season 2 is not mentioned.
Considering how big the show is for the streaming giant, this new detail from Netflix brings up a lot of questions – mostly from fans. Netflix has indirectly confirmed that season 2 of their biggest hit show will not be released in 2021. However, other factors suggest that maybe Netflix is keeping the season of Bridgerton 2 in the lead and wants to hold a big show for its release. For now, no details have been provided for Bridgerton season 2.But, not being on the list certainly raises some alarms from the audience.
As per sources, Bridgerton season 2 is in production. What’s more important is that there is no release date at this time. Apart from that, there is other good news for fans. Even though season 2 isn’t here, the original network has updated the show for seasons 3 & 4.
Bela Bajaria, vice president of global television at Netflix, said, “Bridgerton sweep us off our feet. “He also mentioned how Shonda Rhimes, together with her team, put on a performance filled with perfection, emotion, romance and beautiful drama.
Bridgerton Season 2 Cast
Phoebe Dynevor, who is leading the show in the first part, will reprise her role as Daphne Bassett (née Bridgerton). In the new season, Daphne will guide her brother through social ups and downs. Also, there will be more romance than ever.
Regé-Jean Page, who played the Duke of Hastings’ in season 1, will not be returning for season 2. This is because of the contract he signed. He signed a contract to be part of the team for only one year. In addition, the Duke of Hastings’ was not present in the next storyline of Julia Quinn which the show would follow. So, that’s quite understandable.
In February 2021, it was announced that Simone Ashley would act as the second leading woman in the event. She will play the role of Kate Sharma in season 2. She was previously seen in Sex Education. This upcoming season Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) will travel to find a bride-to-be, whom he will find in the role of Ashley.
Additionally, Shelley Conn (Terra Nova) and Calam Lynch (Mrs. Wilson) joins Season 2. We wish Mrs. Whistledown will also return to the show. More updates on the show will unravel once the show has finished production.
Until then, watch the show again on Netflix. And if you still haven’t seen Bridgerton, watch it. You will not regret.
