Bridgerton Season 2 When Is It Coming To Netflix?

Bridgerton Season 2 When Is It Coming To Netflix?

When Netflix announced that Bridgerton, an eight-episode series based on the Bridgerton novels by Julia Quinn, would debut in 2020 absolutely nobody could have foreseen just how hugely successful it was going to be.

It is the most-watched Netflix original tv series (in English) and according to their Top 10 website, has been viewed for 625,490,000 hours across the world.

Roughly translated that is just over 78 million households watching the full show!

And if you are not one of those 78 million then the story goes like this

The Bridgerton family is one of the wealthiest and most influential in England. The series tells the story of how Anthony Bridgerton, the eldest son, falls in love with Kate Hardcastle, a woman who is below his station.

But the bigger story in season one is that of Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) who also find love during the course of the series.

It's steamy and addictive and had our pulses racing so much so that a Bridgerton Season two was quickly on the cards.

Here's what we know so far:

Bridgerton Season 2 Release Date

Bridgerton season 2 will be released on Netflix in 2022. The cast began filming the second season in the spring of 2021 and production was completed in November 2021.

Given the monumental task of editing and translating the show, it took some time to get it tv ready.

The good news though is that Netflix has announced Bridgerton Season 2 will drop on March 25th 2022.

Bridgerton Cast

The two main leads in Season 1 are Phoebe Dynevor who plays Daphne Bridgerton and Regé-Jean Page who plays Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings.

Their love story drives a significant amount of the plot. But alongside them is Jonathan Bailey as Anthony Bridgerton. Given what we know so far, he will become the central focus of Season 2, in keeping with the books the series is based on.

Also firmly in the mix is Nicola Coughlan (Derry Girls) who plays Penelope Featherington. Her character tends to bring the humour but she does have a pivotal part to play as we saw at the end of Season 1. Will her secret be discovered in Bridgerton Season 2??

And what will Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel) and Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) have to say about it all!

The Bridgerton Family Cast

As many of you may have noticed, the Bridgerton siblings are named alphabetically. So here goes:

Anthony Bridgerton – Jonathan Bailey

Benedict Bridgerton – Luke Thompson

Colin Bridgerton – Luke Newton

Daphne Bridgerton – Phoebe Dynevor

Eloise Bridgerton – Claudia Jessie

Francesca Bridgerton – Ruby Stokes

Gregory Bridgerton – Will Tilston

Hyacinth Bridgerton – Florence Hunt

With eight children there have to be parents. As the story goes Mr Bridgerton has already passed away, leaving Lord Anthony Bridgerton as the man of the house. But the matriarch is Ruth Gemmell as Lady Violet Bridgerton – the mother in charge!

The Featherington Family Cast

The show may be called Bridgerton but they are not the only family in town. The Featherington's also make up many of the cast and storylines and they are headed up by Polly Walker as Baroness Portia Featherington. Along with her husband, Baron Featherington (Ben Miller) the duo are raising three daughters:

Bessie Carter as Prudence Featherington

Harriet Cains as Philippa Featherington

Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington

So there you have the bulk of the Bridgerton cast. While most will be back for the second season there will be a noticeable absence. That is Jean-Rene Page as his character's story has now been completed.

Where Was Bridgerton Filmed?

Filming for the first season wrapped in February 2020. Bridgerton was mostly filmed in London and Bath but because of the size of the production, various estates and parks around England were also used.

Most street scenes were filmed in Bath, York, and Chatham. The garden scenes were filmed at Painshill near Cobham and the Commissioner's House in Chatham.

The exterior of the Bridgerton family home is actually Ranger's House in Greenwich with the interior of the house filmed in Halton House at RAF Halton.

Holburne Museum was used for Lady Danbury's estate with Somerly the setting for the Queen's House and Somerset House.

In all, there were over 30 different places around the UK used for filming the various scenes in Season 1.

How Many Seasons of Bridgerton Are There?

At the time of writing, there is only one season of Bridgerton. Season two will be released by Netflix in 2022.

However, the very good news is that Netflix has officially renewed Bridgerton for a third and fourth season.

What Year Is Bridgerton Set In?

Bridgerton is set in London during the Regency Era. That is technically between 1795 and 1837. However, Bridgerton is specifically set in 1813.

While critics may have pointed out that Bridgerton is not historically accurate, what they failed to see is that it is indeed a fictional drama based on an alternate history.

Basically – it's not real!

Who Wrote the Bridgerton Books?

The author who brought Bridgerton to life is Julia Quinn. She is a best-selling American historical romance writer.

Hugely successful, her novels have been translated into 29 languages and she has appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List 19 times.

There are eight Bridgerton books in the series – one for each of the Bridgerton siblings. They are:

  • The Duke and I (2000)
  • The Viscount Who Loved Me (2000)
  • An Offer From a Gentleman (2001)
  • Romancing Mister Bridgerton (2002)
  • To Sir Phillip, With Love (2003)
  • When He Was Wicked (2004)
  • It's In His Kiss (2005)
  • On the Way to the Wedding (2006)
Try Apple TV

As a final goodbye to the Bridgertons, Quinn then wrote an epilogue for each book plus a short story about Violet and that collection was published as The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After (2013).
