*Warning: This article contains Bridgerton season two spoilers*
Bridgerton has captured the world’s imagination and had use dreaming of house dresses, bejewelled tiaras, ribbon chokers and feather-trimmed heels for the best part of two years.
In December 2020, the Shonda Rhimes-produced show arrived on Netflix with a bang, and made us fall in love with actors Nicola Coughlan, Rege-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor, and regency-style drama. A month later, the streaming platform announced the show had become its biggest ever launched series – outranking The Witcher, Stranger Things and The Queen’s Gambit – and reaching 41% of all Netflix subscribers.
After a long, and what seemed like an agonising wait for fans, season two of the show dropped on Netflix in March 2022, welcoming old faces (Dynevor as Daphne Bridgerton, Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury, Jonathan Bailey as Anthony Bridgerton) and new (Simone Ashley as Kate Sharma and Charithra Chandran as Edwina Sharma).
Unsurprisingly, the second season went down a storm with fans, despite arguably less steamy sex scenes and the absence of Page (aka Simon Basset, The Duke Of Hastings).
Bridgerton fans have since been left in mourning after bingewatching season two in one sitting (who came blame them?), and we’re now looking ahead to a third season of the hit TV show, which is currently filming.
