Netflix confirmed that “Bridgerton” is returning for a second season. The show is one of the most popular YA dramas on the market, so the renewal isn’t a surprise, but fans should be happy just the same. Netflix made the announcement with a letter in Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers, released a quick teaser trailer.
“Bridgerton” is from Shondaland and Creator Chris Van Dusen and 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.
The description adds, “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, and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.”
