Netflix’s romantic period drama, Bridgerton Season 2 is arriving very soon. Set in the regency period, the drama involves the lives of three elite families in London; the Bridgertons, Featheringtons, and Bassets. Based on Julia Quinn’s novel series of the same name, the drama first premiered on Netflix in 2020 and gained a huge fanbase. Moreover, the early 19th-century British drama also received positive reviews from critics. Since the premiere of the first season, fans are waiting for some good news regarding season 2. What are the updates? Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming series.
Bridgerton Season 2 Renewal Status and Production Updates
Following its release in 2020, Netflix renewed Bridgerton Season 2 in January 2021. The show got immense popularity on the streaming platform soon after its debut. However, Netflix released the series in its entirety on December 25, 2020. The debut season consisted of eight episodes, each about 50-70 minutes long.
Moreover, the filming for season 2 began in the United Kingdom in spring this year. We also heard some rumors regarding the cast testing positive on the sets. Besides that, Star Nicola Coughlan also revealed that very important scenes of the series are scheduled for filming in September. Henceforth, this assures that the filming for season 2 is still going on. Fans will have to wait a little longer for more updates on the release date. We have another delightful news for the fans as well. The show creators have already renewed the British drama series for a third and fourth season too.
So far, we don’t have any release date for Bridgerton Season 2. As mentioned above, the filming for the second season is still going on. Neither Netflix nor the show creators have updated anything on the release date. Besides that, the COVID-19 pandemic is also causing a lot of delays. Also, the debut season of the series landed in December on Netflix. Keeping that in mind, we are hoping that the sophomore season might also drop around the same time. Or else, we will definitely see a new season in the first quarter of 2022.
