Good news, dear reader, Bridgerton has officially been renewed for a season two on Netflix.
The period drama, starring Rege-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor, has become a blockbuster hit with around 63 million people tuning in since it debuted at Christmas.
Fans finally got the news that had been begging for today when a second season was confirmed on the show’s social media accounts.
The tweet read: ‘Prepare for another social season. Bridgerton is returning for season two, only on Netflix.’
Showrunner Chris Van Dusen then told Today with Hoda and Jenna: ‘I am so thrilled to be announcing that Bridgerton will be back for a second season.
‘We are going to be starting filming later this Spring in London and we’re all so excited. I know the cast can’t wait to get back to it and neither can I.’
Teasing the plot, he added: ‘Season two we’re really going to be with the eldest Bridgerton brother, this season. Our Viscount Lord Anthony Bridgerton played by Jonathan Bailey.
‘We left him at the end the of the first season in a bit of a crossroads so I’m looking forward to jumping in and discovering how he fares on the marriage market.’
Dusen confirmed that he knew the story arc for the season as he has been busy writing the script.
Book two of the series, created by Julia Quinn, focuses on Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, Daphne’s older brother whose path to true love hasn’t exactly run smooth.
In season one, he became embroiled in a romantic affair with opera singer Siena who he was in love with but couldn’t marry.
It’s expected that season two of the Netflix series will follow his quest for a wife, with book fans keen for beloved scenes such as the Pall Mall game to feature.
Season one left viewers completely enchanted with the love story of Daphne and the Duke of Hastings, Simon Bassett.
Bridgerton is available to watch on Netflix.
