Far be it from Lady Whistledown, but a second season of Bridgerton seems an accomplished fact.
TVLine has learned that production of Shonda Rhimes' drama from the lush period could begin as early as March 2021, although Netflix has not yet officially renewed the series. A representative of the streamer declined to comment.
Bridgerton's first eight-episode season kicked off on Christmas Day. On Saturday, the ten most watched films and series by Netflix were cracked. It currently ranks second just behind George Clooney's space image The Midnight Sky.
Based on Julia Quinn's novels, Bridgerton follows 19th-century heroine Daphne (Youngers Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family, as she searches for a husband in Regency London. Meanwhile, Daphne and her potential suitors live under the omniscient control of Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews). Daphne finally hits her match in "Duke of Hastings" (For the Regé Jean Side of the People). The two feign mutual disinterest, but soon sparks fly.
Chris Van Dusen serves as Showrunner / EP.
