Today Netflix unveils its hotly anticipated second season of Bridgerton.
Bridgerton was such a huge hit when it premiered in late 2020 as we all got swept in the love story between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page)
In the new season, our focal point is Anthony Bridgeton (Johnathon Bailey) taking centre stage as he attempts to find a wife.
Finding the perfect woman for him seems to be impossible until the Sharma sisters arrive. He sets his sights on Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran), who is everything a young lady of London society is expected to be; however, he has to get past her sister Kate )Simone Ashley) who doesn’t see Anthony as the perfect person for her sister, and there’s a reason for that given the amount of tension in the air.
Elsewhere, Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) continues to navigate the town while keeping her deepest secret that she is Lady Whistledown ) voiced by Julie Andrews from the people closest to her and it’s a refreshing move.
This Season also sees Eloise (Claudia Jessie) make her debut in society, though her terrifying presentation to Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel) is interrupted, putting the queen on a quest to uncover Lady Whistledown’s identity.
Season 2 expands on season 1 without being an exact copy as Johnathon Bailey gets pushed front and centre it’s a delightful season for fans who are treated to new faces, with both Charadan and Ashely being given ample screen time to shine. But there really isn’t bad performances
Be compelled by the romance and stick around for a slower but sexier season than before
