Netflix has renewed Bridgerton for seasons 3 and 4. The drama’s second season is currently in production.
“From the first time I read Julia Quinn’s delicious Bridgerton series, I knew these were stories that would captivate a viewing audience. But the evolution of this adaptation would not be a success without the many significant contributions of the entire Shondaland team,” Shonda Rhimes said in a statement. “This two-season pickup is a strong vote of confidence in our work and I feel incredibly grateful to have partners as collaborative and creative as Netflix. Betsy and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue bringing the world of Bridgerton to a worldwide audience.”
Season 2 will focus on the eldest Bridgerton sibling. Anthony, played by Jonathan Bailey, will be looking for a suitable wife. In all likelihood, that means the show will follow Julia Quinn’s second novel in the Bridgerton Series - The Viscount Who Loved Me. Kate Sharma, played by Simone Ashley, will be the new female lead for the season.
Shelley Conn as Edwina Sharma, Calam Lynch as Theo Sharpe, Charithra Chandran as Edwina Sharma and Rupert Young as Jack have also joined the cast of Bridgerton’s second season.
Regé-Jean Page will not be reprising his role as the Duke of Hastings. Phoebe Dynevor is still expected to return as Daphne, who will now help her brother Lord Anthony Bridgerton in his pursuit of love.
The series stars Jonathan Bailey (“Anthony Bridgerton”), Nicola Coughlan (“Penelope Featherington”), Claudia Jessie (“Eloise Bridgerton”), Ruby Barker (“Marina Thompson”), Adjoa Andoh (“Lady Danbury”), Golda Rosheuvel (“Queen Charlotte”), Luke Thompson (“Benedict Bridgerton”), Luke Newton (“Colin Bridgerton”), Ruby Stokes (“Francesca Bridgerton”), Will Tilston (“Gregory Bridgerton”), Florence Hunt (“Hyacinth Bridgerton”), Ruth Gemmell (“Lady Violet Bridgerton”), Bessie Carter (“Prudence Featherington”), Harriet Cains (“Philipa Featherington”), Polly Walker (“Lady Portia Featherington”), Ben Miller (“Lord Featherington”), Sabrina Bartlett (“Siena Rosso”), Martins Imhangbe (“Will Mondrich”), Kathryn Drysdale (“Madame Genevieve Delacroix”) and Lorraine Ashbourne (“Mrs Varley”).
