Bridgerton Fans Just Got The Best News Ever

Bridgerton fans just got the news they were hoping for... directly from Lady Whistledown herself. Spoilers for Bridgerton season 1 — and the original book series — ahead!

After the buzzy, steamy Netflix series made its debut on Christmas Day 2020, audiences were immediately drawn into London during the Regency era, falling in love with the upper class Bridgerton family and their high society cohorts as a new season begins and a new generation of eligible young girls seek out wealthy husbands. As Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the family's "diamond," begins a relationship with the handsome but marriage-averse Simon (Regé-Jean Page), the Duke of Hastings, the rest of her brothers and sisters engaged in their own drama.

Though the first season focused mainly on Daphne's journey from eligible bachelorette to wife, Duchess, and mother, season two — which, according to Deadline, was officially confirmed by Netflix — will shift its focus entirely. Bridgerton is definitely coming back for season two, and this time, a different Bridgerton sibling will steal the spotlight.

Bridgerton's second season is coming to Netflix soon

Almost a month after Bridgerton first premiered, Netflix confirmed what fans were hoping: not only will the show return for a second season, but production will begin in 2021. In a sheet "written" by the show's secret gossipmonger, Lady Whistledown — voiced on the series by Dame Julie Andrews — Netflix revealed that the series will start filming its sophomore season soon, and that it would focus on the second book in Julia Quinn's popular Bridgerton series, The Viscount Who Loved Me.

What this means is that Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), who serves as the head of the family in his late father's absence, will take center stage from Daphne as he searches for a suitable wife to serve as his viscountess. According to Deadline's report, casting for the character of Kate Sheffield, Anthony's love interest in The Viscount Who Loved Me, is underway.

However, in her missive, Lady Whistledown urged caution, writing, "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 the time. Patience, after all, is a virtue." Clearly, Bridgerton fans will have to wait a little while longer for more details, but with showrunner Chris Van Dusen back at the helm and executive producer Shonda Rhimes by his side, fans certainly won't be disappointed.

For now, the first season of Bridgerton is available to stream on Netflix.
