Onesumore: ‘Bridgerton’ Season 2: Filming Officially Begun & What We Know So Far
Ever since it hit Netflix on Christmas Day 2020, Bridgerton topped the top ten watchlists in the world. Created by Shondaland and based on the popular novels by Julia Quinn, the series is a scorching, sentimental and scandalous fantasy of life in London during the Regency era.
The show follows the Bridgerton family, eight siblings and their mother, paying close attention to their love life and domestic dramas. The first season sees Bridgerton’s eldest daughter, Daphne, making her company debut. Although she was hailed as the belle of the season, she initially fails to attract any proposals. In an effort to make herself appear more desirable to future suitors, she and the dashing Duke of Hastings “ fake ” a romance. The couple rarely appear eye-to-eye, so they doubt they’ll make their love for the piercing eyes among the Ton believable. But, the plot works quickly, bringing with it unexpected feelings from Daphne and the Duke …
The show became the most popular series on Netflix. 82 million households checked the series in the first 30 days, which has been revised up from the 63 million originally forecast.
AT Bridgerton been renewed for a second season?
It was clear from the start that there would never be just one season of Bridgerton. The fact that the show is based on a series of books is a bit of a giveaway.
We first learned that Bridgerton Season 2 had been in active development since February 2020, with filming set to begin later that year. Considering the events of the world, this has taken a step back.
Netflix has since confirmed that there will be a second season of Bridgerton. They teased the ad with the following video, posted in late January 2021:
Additionally, Lady Bridgerton posted this post on social media:
“The ton is buzzing with the latest gossip, so it’s my honor to tell you: Bridgerton will officially return for a second season. I hope you have saved a bottle of ratafia for this most enjoyable occasion.
Naturally, in the sense of the story, there is still a lot of source material to cover. After all, a total of 8 books have been published for Bridgerton.
When Bridgerton is season 2 on Netflix?
You might be on a long wait, Bridgerton Fans.
Filming, as we mentioned above, was originally scheduled to start in mid-2020. However, that was pushed back to early 2021.
Thanks to some photos on the set revealed by the cast, we can now confirm that filming is officially underway for Bridgerton season 2. The first season took several months to film, which means that the production of season 2 will not end until September / October 2021.
Now that filming is underway, it’s almost confirmed that we won’t be seeing Bridgerton’s return until 2022.
What to expect from season 2 of Bridgerton?
Warning: potential spoilers for the upcoming first season of Bridgerton…
The same press release that gave us clues about the Season 2 release date also provides information on what to expect from the new season of Bridgerton…
“Anthony Bridgerton didn’t just decide to get married – he even chose a wife! The only obstacle is his intention’s older sister, Kate Sheffield – the most fearless woman who has ever graced a London ballroom. The fiery schemer drives Anthony crazy with his determination to stop the engagement, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate is the woman who haunts his increasingly erotic dreams. Contrary to popular belief, Kate is convinced that Reformed rakes don’t make the best husbands – and Anthony Bridgerton is the meanest of them all. Kate is determined to protect her sister – but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony’s lips touch hers, she is suddenly afraid that she herself won’t be able to resist the objectionable rake.
After severing ties with his opera-singer mistress at the end of the first season, it looks like the elder Bridgerton finds himself in the middle of a love triangle in season 2. Judging by the brief synopsis below. above, it looks like things are going to get scorching hot.
Fans will be delighted to hear that Daphne and Simon (aka The Duke of Hastings) are not going anywhere. After welcoming their first child in a “ flash-forward ” at the end of the first season, we expect to see the couple settle into married life and parenthood in Season 2. We hope all that. will be sunshine and roses for the couple from now on, but of course, that wouldn’t be very dramatic.
At the end of the first season, we also saw the return of Francesca Bridgerton: the third youngest sister. Absent for most of the season, the young woman was spending time with the extended Bridgerton family in Bath, England (a popular holiday destination during the Regency). Now that she’s back with the family, we expect to see a lot more of Francesca Bridgerton in the future.
The identity of the mysterious author, Lady Whistledown, was revealed to viewers at the end of the first season. However, despite helping escape the trapping, the curious Eloise Bidgerton still hasn’t found out who it is. We predict the truth will be uncovered in Season 2, with dramatic consequences.

So far, we know of at least one famous new face who will be joining the cast of Bridgerton season 2.
Simone Ashley (aka Olivia in Sex education) joins as Kate: the older sister of Anthony’s original love interest, who ends up in the hot seat herself.
Simone Ashley is Miss Kate Sharma.
Newly arrived in London, Kate is a smart and stubborn young woman who doesn’t suffer from fools – Anthony Bridgerton is very inclusive. 🐝 #Bridgerton https://t.co/Q5wBwFiNC4 pic.twitter.com/BZd4qOmsln
