Netflix's most-watched steamy drama series, Bridgerton, will be back with season 2 on March 25, 2022. The first season of Bridgerton was released on Netflix on Christmas Day 2020. After only a few days, Netflix recorded its highest views for an original series. The drama series made such an impression the producers on Netflix agreed to season 2 one month later, January 21, 2021.
Bridgerton season 1: The Duke and I
The TV series is based on a collection of books by Julia Quinn, written during the 19th century. Each book in the series follows the life of one Bridgerton child as they grow and find love. The first book, The Duke and I, was based on the life and love of Daphne Bridgerton. She is the eldest girl and third child of the Bridgerton children.
The Netflix series, Bridgerton was produced by Shonda Rhimes, the producer of Pride and Prejudice, Sandal, and Gossip Girl. The cast included stars like Rege Jean-Page, who played, the heartthrob Simon Basset, Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Bridgerton, Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington, and Julian Andrews as the voice of Lady Whistledown.
The veteran writer at Shondaland, Chris Van Dusen, brought a combination of sexy, romance, history and modern in one series. Historical facts like King George III's hysteria and Queen Charlotte, who was presumed to be colored, played by Golda Rosheuvel. This series also highlighted the extensive social life and socioeconomic division of that era. Bridgerton emphasized the pressure young women faced in the marriage market as they sought a suitor.
Julia Quinn brought steamy romance to this period. And added the gossip columnist, Lady Whistledown. The writer, Chris Dusen, kept these features and added instrumental pieces of modern pop music. These twists gave the show new dimensions and probably contributed to its success.
Bridgerton season 2: The Viscount who loved me
With much anticipation, the second season of Bridgerton is scheduled for release next Friday, March 25, 2022. The announcement of season 2 came only a few weeks after the premiere of season 1 on Netflix.
The story is based on the eldest children in the Bridgerton household as he endeavors to find love. Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan Bailey, Kate Sharma as Simone Ashley, Edwina Sharma as Charithra Chandran, and a few familiar faces from season 1 will be back.
If the series follows the storyline of the Julia Quinn novel, then season 2 will bring more social events and gossip that lead to love. It is sad to report that the Duke of Hasting, Simon Basset, aka Rege Jean-Page, wouldn't be making an appearance in season 2.
