If you’re a fan of Bridgerton – the TV series that everyone is buzzing about right now - then we have some good news for you!
Netflix announced today that the show will be officially returning for a second season!
The news appropriately came in the form of one of Lady Whistledown’s society papers and read: "The ton are abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honor to impart to you: Bridgerton shall officially return for a second season. I do hope you have stored a bottle of ratafia for this most delightful occasion."
"The incomparable cast of Bridgerton will return to production in the Spring of 2021. This author has been reliably informed that Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season. I will have my pen ready to report on any and all of his romantic activities," the letter continues.
"However, gentle reader, before you set the comments section alight with requests for more sordid details, know that I am disinclined to report on the particulars at this time. Patience, after all, is a virtue."
This exciting news comes after Bridgerton’s showrunner Chris Van Dusen revealed that he hopes the show will have eight seasons, to follow each of the novels by Julia Quinn the regency era romance is based on.
"I feel like the first season was primarily about Daphne and her love story with Simon," the producer explained during a recent interview with Collider.
"But this being a family of eight children and there being eight books, I would love to be able to focus and really tell stories and love stories for all the Bridgerton siblings. For each character, for sure."
"I think we've done some work in season 1 to set up other characters [for more]. … I think it’s a deep well of story for us to explore," he said.
We can’t wait!
