On Thursday, it was announced that the period drama series Bridgerton would be renewed for a second season on the Netflix streaming service. Based on the popular book series by Julia Quinn, Bridgerton was created by Chris Van Dusen and is set in the Regency era of Great Britain where the eight siblings of the Bridgerton family attempt to find love in their high-society environment. Because of the premise, Bridgerton has often been referred to as a “Regency era Gossip Girl.” While the story may sound basic at first, Bridgerton has proven to be a smash hit with audiences, with it even being renewed for a second season only less than a month after the first season premiered on December 25.

The announcement that Bridgerton would be renewed for a second season was released in the form of one of the society papers written by the character Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews). In the note, the announcement states, “The ton are abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honor to impart to you: Bridgerton shall officially return for a second season. I do hope you have stored a bottle of ratafia for this most delightful occasion. The incomparable cast of Bridgerton will return to production in the Spring of 2021. This author has been reliably informed that Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season. I will have my pen ready to report on any and all of his romantic activities.” The letter also stresses that the audience must be patient as to when the second season airs and when more details will be revealed, stating, “However, gentle reader, before you set the comments section alight with requests for more sordid details, know that I am disinclined to report on the particulars at this time. Patience, after all, is a virtue.”

With this news, fans of the new hit series can look forward to seeing Bridgerton season 2 air sometime in 2021 on Netflix.
