“This title has proven immensely popular and we’ll have some exciting news about Bridgerton later this week,” Netflix wrote in a shareholder letter, according to Deadline. Yup, this means we’re likely getting the official announcement of the renewal of season two sooner than we thought.
The renewal doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering the series’ continued popularity since it was released on December 25. In fact, the show even became the streaming service’s fifth-biggest original series launch with over 63 million households vieweing it in the first 28 days.
From creator Shonda Rhimes, Bridgerton, which is based on best-selling romance author Julia Quinn’s book series of the same name, follows Daphne Bridgerton, the eldest daughter in a very powerful family. She searches for true love in a competitive (and equally diverse) marriage market. However, this proves to be a challenge when her older brother steps in to rule out several potential suitors. And when she meets the rebellious Duke of Hastings, their natural chemistry starts to outweigh Daphne's aversion to his bad-boy demeanor.
The cast includes Phoebe Dynevor (Daphne Bridgerton), Regé-Jean Page (Duke of Hastings Simon Basset), Jonathan Bailey (Anthony Bridgerton), Golda Rosheuvel (Queen Charlotte), Ben Miller (Lord Featherington), Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington) and Luke Newton (Colin Bridgerton). Not to mention, the iconic Julie Andrews stars as the series' narrator, Lady Whistledown.
If you need us, we’ll be patiently waiting for the big announcement.
