Netflix Unveils Premiere Date for Season 2 of 'Bridgerton'

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of its original drama series Bridgerton.

All 8 episodes of the second season will be available on Friday, March 25.

Based on The Viscount Who Loved Me, the second novel in Julia Quinn's series, the new season follows Lord Anthony Bridgerton, the eldest Bridgerton sibling and Viscount, as he sets out to find a suitable wife. Driven by his duty to uphold the family name, his search for a debutante who meets his impossible standards seems ill-fated until Kate and her younger sister Edwina Sharma arrive from India. When Anthony begins to court Edwina, Kate discovers the true nature of his intentions - a true love match is not high on his priority list - and decides to do everything in her power to stop the union. But in doing so, Kate and Anthony's verbal sparring matches only bring them closer together, complicating matters on both sides. Across Grosvenor Square, the Featheringtons must welcome the newest heir to their estate while Penelope continues to navigate the ton whilst keeping her deepest secret from the people closest to her.

The second season stars Jonathan Bailey, Simone Ashley, Adjoa Andoh, Lorraine Ashbourne, Harriet Cains, Bessie Carter, Charithra Chandran, Shelley Conn, Nicola Coughlan, Phoebe Dynevor, Ruth Gemmell, Florence Hunt, Martins Imhangbe, Claudia Jessie, Calam Lynch, Luke Newton, Golda Rosheuvel, Luke Thompson, Will Tilston, Polly Walker, Rupert Young and Julie Andrews as the voice of Lady Whistledown.
