Having won the hearts of millions (over 82 million households, to be exact), Bridgerton, Netflix’s take on the vibrant Regency-era high society drama is entering a new season, and we’re picking up the pieces from the deliciously saucy happenings of season 1.
For the uninitiated, Bridgerton is a Netflix series produced by Shonda Rhimes (Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, Grey’s Anatomy) and is set in 1800s Europe. At the center are the Bridgerton – an aristocratic family trying to navigate racially integrated anachronistic take of Regency-era London and trying to find each other’s happy ending amid love and duty. And looming all over their lives and those they interact with is Lady Whistledown, a secret gossip-monger who sows drama when things are becoming a little bit too ideal – ala 1800’s version of Gossip Girl but more regal.
Because the show has far too many characters and a dozen twists and turns, why don’t we let the cast of Bridgerton spill the tea on what went down during the first season, yes?
All caught up? Good.
Come Bridgerton Season 2, and we find that Bridgerton’s bad-boy and eldest son, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), is in the market for a wife. After lowly opera singer Siena Rosso (Sabrina Bartlett) pushes Anthony away, the Viscount of Bridgerton decides that for him to move on properly, he should use the upcoming season to find a suitable partner for him as this is one of his duties to his family. For once, not attempting to use his heart (or what’s under his pants) to decide, will Anthony find what he’s looking for? Or will the heart get in the way yet again and cause delicious scandals in colorful Regency-era London?
Joining Bridgerton Season 2 are most of the cast from Season 1, including Pheobe Dynevor (Daphne Bridgerton-Basset), Luke Thompson (Benedict Bridgerton), Luke Newton (Colin Bridgerton), Claudia Jessie (Eloise Bridgerton), Ruth Gemmell (Violet Bridgerton), Adjoh Andoh (Lady Danbury), Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington), and Goulda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte. There will, of course, be new faces, including Rupert Evan, as Edmund Bridgerton, the dearly departed father of the Bridgerton clan, will appear in flashbacks and give context to Anthony’s fear of love.
And speaking of new loves, Charithra Chandran will play Edwina Sharma, the suitable bride-to-be for dear Anthony, if he can get past her sister Kate Sharma played by Simone Ashley.
To celebrate the upcoming season in style, Netflix has something up their puffy white silk sleeves to celebrate the upcoming season in style. There is a place in QC where one can be transported, even for an afternoon, to the world of Bridgerton. Step into the world of high society London and be serenaded by a host of string quartet in full gala while you indulge in the scenery of sumptuous banquet halls, opulent drawing rooms, or even sneak inside the Viscount’s bedroom. Ooh. This is Villa Bridgerton.
