(Warning: Spoilers ahead for “Bridgerton” Season 1 thru its finale.)
Netflix’s “Bridgerton” has been a hit for the streaming provider for the reason that Shonda Rhimes-produced romance series debuted on Christmas Day. And following the Jan. 21 announcement that the yelp has been renewed for Season 2, TheWrap thought we’d give all of you adoring “Bridgerton” viewers the scoop on what the brand new batch of episodes will seemingly be about.
What you nearly no doubt know by now’s that the main season of “Bridgerton” used to be adapted by series creator Chris Van Dusen from author Julia Quinn’s unique, “The Duke and I,” which follows the treasure myth of Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor on the series) and Simon Basset a.k.a. the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). However what you may maybe maybe well goal now not know is that e book is the first in a series of eight, each one devoted to a diversified Bridgerton sibling.
So whereas “Bridgerton” Season 1 focuses heavily on Daphne and Simon’s romance — and their joyful ending — Van Dusen advised TheWrap in December that he would, indirectly, win to search out the experiences of all the Bridgerton brothers and sisters.
And it turns out that is what the yelp will seemingly be doing in its 2nd season, which works into production this spring and makes a speciality of the treasure existence of Daphne’s brother, Anthony, the eldest Bridgerton sibling, who’s played by Jonathan Bailey on “Bridgerton.”
This implies Van Dusen and Rhimes are holding in step with the yelp of Quinn’s “Bridgerton” novels, as E book 2, “The Viscount Who Appreciated Me,” is all about Anthony.
Here’s the outline for “The Viscount Who Appreciated Me,” from Quinn’s “Bridgerton Collection Quantity 1”:
“The season has opened for the yr of 1814, and there may maybe be tiny reason to hope that we can interrogate any noticeable trade from 1813. The ranks of society are all over all over again full of Ambitious Mamas, whose handiest aim is to leer their Darling Daughters married off to Sure Bachelors. Discussion amongst the Mamas fingers Lord Bridgerton as this yr’s most eligible collect, and certainly, if the unhappy man’s hair looks ruffled and windblown, it is miles because he can now not gallop wherever without some young depart out batting her eyelashes with such vigor and tempo as to invent a breeze of typhoon pressure. Perchance the handiest young lady now not drawn to Lord Bridgerton is Omit Katherine Sheffield, and in actuality, her demeanor toward the viscount now and then borders on the hostile. And that is why, Dear Reader, This Author feels a match between Anthony Bridgerton and Omit Sheffield would be factual the thing to brighten up an in some other case stylish season. – Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers, 13 April 1814”
On Monday, Netflix published that “Sex Education” alum Simone Ashley will star alongside Bailey in Season 2 of “Bridgerton,” taking half in Kate Sharma, the main treasure interest for Anthony. Per Netflix, Kate is described as “a desirable, headstrong young lady who suffers no fools-Anthony Bridgerton very powerful included.” As you may maybe maybe well interrogate, the personality’s title has been changed from Kate Sheffield in the e book to Kate Sharma, as the “Bridgerton” inventive team beforehand determined her family would be of Indian descent and changed her surname.
