Lovers of “Bridgerton” can breathe a sigh of relief: there will be a second season of the passionate Netflix series.
The period drama based on the Julia Quinn novels, created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes, has created quite a stir since it debuted last month. This is Rhimes’ first series under his contract with Netflix.
So it’s no big surprise that Rhimes’ production company revealed on Instagram Thursday that the series will indeed make a comeback. The announcement came in the form of a letter written by Lady Whistledown’s character, who is essentially the city’s gossip columnist.
‘Dear readers,’ wrote Lady Whistledown, ‘high society is in an uproar with the latest gossip, so I am honored to tell you: Bridgerton will officially return for a second season. I hope they saved a bottle of ratafia for this delicious occasion. ”
The announcement also noted that production will begin this spring and that Lord Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan Bailey, will “dominate the social season.”
