The new Bridgerton season 2 footage is here, and it’s got everything you’ve come to expect from the Netflix drama — romance, beautiful sets, and lavish costumes.
The second season of the hit series shifts the focus from Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Duke Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) to Daphne’s older brother, Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey).
In Season 2, Anthony is looking for someone to meet his high standards and sets his sights on Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran). But Edwina’s older sister, Kate (Simone Ashley), is determined to end their relationship after discovering that true love isn’t what drives Anthony. Naturally, Kate and Anthony end up getting closer…
One of the new images shows Anthony and Kate seemingly dancing, holding hands, while another shows Kate and Edwina with an adorable corgi (named Newton, as readers of Julia Quinn’s novels know). Then it looks like Kate has joined a hunting party in another image, and characters like Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan), Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie), Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel), and Daphne also appear in the images. Check them all out below.
One character who won’t be returning for Season 2 of the Netflix show, however, is Page’s Duke Simon Basset. The actor reportedly turned down the chance to return for the second installment, but has roles in the upcoming Netflix movie The Gray Man, as well as Dungeons & Dragons, and will star in Paramount’s reboot of The Saint.
Bridgerton season 2 arrives on March 25. While you wait, check out our guide to the best Netflix shows streaming now to fill out your watchlist.
