Bridgerton has been the somewhat surprising bright side to a rather depressing end to 2020. Fun, flamboyant, visually beautiful and totally addictive, this Shonda Rhimes period drama has us all completely and totally hooked.
With most of having fixatedly binge-watched this show in a week (or less), there is one question we need the answer to: will there be a season 2?
I'm pleased to say that our prospects look very good, despite the fact that Netflix has yet to officially confirm anything. Below is everything we know so far about a potential second run for Bridgerton.
Is Bridgerton Season 2 confirmed?
So, technically no. It's not confirmed. But given that this show has been such a smash hit, we'd be very surprised if we didn't see a second season. And the Bridgerton story isn't finished yet.
If you're a fan and you've done some deep diving, you'll know that Bridgerton the show is actually based on a series of books. Our first look into the world of Bridgerton was just one book, the story of Daphne and her pursuit to find love. But there are actually seven more books in the series. That's a lot of material for subsequent seasons.
To add fuel to the fire of rumours, a project titled Bridgerton 02 has been spotted in Production Weekly. It's set to film in Uxbridge, England. So, the potential for a season 2 look very good in our eyes.
What will Season 2 be about?
While we were all ensnared by the relationship between Daphne and the Duke of Hastings, it's likely that Bridgerton season 2 won't follow their story.
Author of the books Julia Quinn has constructed her series in a unique way. The eight books in the Bridgerton book series each follow a different child in the Bridgerton family. So, when season 2 rolls around, the storyline will probably follow the same pattern as the books and look at a new member of the Bridgerton clan.
As to which book will be next, who knows? We'll just have to wait and see.
