Bridgerton Season 2 Release Date and Everything We Know
(Pocket Ribbon) – Bridgerton – the glossy period drama with a modern twist – graced Netflix in late 2020 and it was excellent. Full of scandal, drama, sex and romance, it was the TV series that got us all hooked on Lady Whistledown’s detailing of the events from start to finish.
The first series is inspired by Juila Quinn’s book – ‘The Duke and I’ – which is the first of eight, so there’s plenty of material to keep us busy with Bridgerton for quite some time to come. Netflix has confirmed seasons 2, 3 and 4 so far.
Here’s everything we know so far about Bridgerton Season 2 and when it will hit our screens.
Bridgerton Season 2 Release Date: When Is It Coming Out?
Netflix confirmed that Bridgerton would see a season 2 on January 21, 2021, followed by a confirmation of seasons 3 and 4 on April 13, 2021.
It then confirmed on the one-year anniversary of the first season that Bridgerton Season 2 would air on March 25, 2022.
How and where to watch Bridgerton season 2?
When Bridgerton Season 2 comes out on March 25, 2022, it will be on Netflix only. Not surprising considering it’s a Netflix original series – and one of the biggest to date – so you’ll want to make sure you have your Netflix subscription ready.
What is the best streaming device for your TV? Our top recommendation is the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. Also excellent are the Google Chromecast with Google TV, the Roku Express 4K, the Apple TV 4K and the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
How many episodes will there be in Bridgerton season 2?
Bridgerton season 1 had eight episodes, so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see a similar number for season 2, although we don’t know at the moment.
However, each episode is likely to run for an hour, just like Season 1, so we can hope for at least eight hours more drama and Lady Whistledown reporting.
What is expected to happen in Bridgerton Season 2
As mentioned, Bridgerton’s first season was inspired by Julia Quinn’s “The Duke and I,” which centered on the relationship between the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset, and the Bridgerton daughter’s eldest, Daphne Bridgerton.
The second season is expected to be inspired by the second book, “The Viscount Who Loved Me.” It will focus on the eligible bachelor Anthony Bridgerton and a woman named Edwina Sharma. Though of course nothing will be easy as that doesn’t make for good TV so Edwina’s sister Kate will make sure Lady Whistledown has something to write about for her Society Papers.

Julia Quinn also told the BBC“I’m just so excited because I know what’s in book two after I write it, and I think there are some scenes that are going to be so incredible and that people are going to love.”
There may also be news about Penelope Fetherington and Colin Bridgerton, known as “Polin” to some fans. Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope, tweeted a selfie of her and Luke Newton, who plays Colin. The tweet said “Polin: Year two” with a bee emoji representing Quinn’s books, which has excited fans.

Who will be cast in Bridgerton Season 2?
Well seen season 2 is expected to focus on Anthony Bridgerton among others, we know Jonathan Bailey who plays him will be back. Most of the season one cast is also expected to return, including Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne and Lady Whistledown’s voiceover Julie Andrews. Nicola Coughlan, Claudia Jessie and Adjoa Andoh are also expected to return.
Sadly, we won’t be seeing the return of the Duke of Hastings, Rege-Jean Page, for the second season. At least not for an entire season. The actor previously said he won’t be returning to the show, though he didn’t rule out a cameo or guest appearance recently, sidestepping the subject in an interview with GQ, saying, “You know I couldn’t tell you!” followed by “Isn’t there something wonderful about being surprised by what you didn’t suspect?”.

Bridgerton has added four actors to Season 2:
Charithra Chandran plays Edwina Sharma, Kate’s younger sister and Shelley Conn plays Mary Sharma, Kate’s mother.

Will there be a season 3 of Bridgerton?
Yes. Netflix has confirmed that Bridgerton will have a Season 3 and Season 4 so far, meaning there’s still a lot of drama to come.
