Streaming giant Netflix released season 2 teasers and trailers of its most-awaited shows, Bridgerton and The Witcher at its global fan event TUDUM on Saturday.
BRIDGERTON: Described as "a very feminist, very steamy take on the strict social mores of early 19th century London, all narrated by an unseen gossip hound voiced by Julie Andrews", Bridgerton quickly became Netflix’s biggest hit with 82 million viewers in its first month. The second season is all set to premiere in 2022 and has just released its first look. Following the chronology of Julia Quinn’s books, the second season focuses on Viscount Anthony Bridgerton played by Jonathan Bailey and Kate Sheffield played by Simone Ashley. The first look indicates the classic rom-com troupe- enemies to lovers between the two leads.
Netflix has also revealed photographs of the Sheffield family, introducing Kate’s mother Mary and sister Edwina being ushered by Lady Danbury. The previous season’s lead, Regé-Jean Page, Duke of Hastings is not expected to return while Phoebe Dynevor’s Daphne Bridgerton will be showcased. Creator Shonda Rhimes will also be releasing seasons 3 and 4 of the show.
