Bridgerton Wraps Production Of Season 2

Bridgerton season 2 is based on Julia Quinn's novel 'The Viscount Who Loved Me,' and will debut on Netflix in 2022.

Season 2 of Bridgerton is one step closer to hitting the streaming giant. Creator and showrunner Chris Van Dusen celebrated wrapping season 2 of the hit Netflix series Saturday, posting a photo of himself hugging the show’s new romantic stars Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley.

Chris Van Dusen tweeted while captioning, “That’s a wrap on Season Two! So proud of this cast and crew who brought their A-games to work each and every day in this very challenging year. And these two in this photo with me right here. Words are not enough. Coming in 2022.”

Meanwhile, Bailey, 33, also shared a photo of himself with Van Dusen and Sex Education actress Ashley, 26, at the season 2 wrap party. “Series 2 complete. Heart full,” he wrote on his Instagram Story. Bridgerton was renewed for season 2 in January and, just after that in April, Netflix gave the show an early order for seasons 3 and 4. However, the first season became the streaming platform’s “biggest show ever” when it premiered in January.

Although shooting for season 2 kicked off in May, the production was delayed, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, production was halted indefinitely in July when few members tested positive for coronavirus. Shooting for the second installment later resumed in early August.

Season 2 is based on Julia Quinn’s novel The Viscount Who Loved Me, which will focus on the oldest Bridgerton sibling, Bailey’s Lord Anthony Bridgerton, who will potentially find love with the new character Kate Sharma. Ashley was cast as the female romantic lead in February. Netflix’s character description reads, “Newly arrived in London, Kate is a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools, Anthony Bridgerton very much included.”

Nicola Coughlan, the actress who plays Penelope Featherington, appeared with Bailey at Netflix’s TUDUM event in September, where they revealed the first look at season 2. The video featured a heated exchange between Anthony and Kate. The show is based on Quinn’s Bridgerton series, with each season featuring one of the eight eponymous siblings finding love during the social season of Regency-era London. Season 2 of Bridgerton will debut on Netflix in 2022.
