ET– Bridgerton, Shondaland’s first original Netflix series, has been renewed for season 2. Adapted from Julia Quinn’s best-selling novels about 1800s London society by longtime Shonda Rhimes collaborator Chris Van Dusen, the series will continue to tell the story about the titular and sprawling Bridgerton family as they navigate society, scandal and Lady Whistledown’s scathing takedowns.
“I think there is a deep well of story for us to explore on Bridgerton,” Van Dusen previously told ET about the possibility of continuing the series. “We have an amazing sprawling cast of characters and amazing cast and that provides us opportunities to explore all kinds of stories for all these characters.”
While eldest daughter of the family Daphne Bridgerton’s (Phoebe Dynevor) debut into the Regency era’s competitive marriage market and romance with the Duke of Hastings (Rege-Jean Page) was the main focus of season 1, her oldest brother, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), will to be at the center of the newest episodes, which start production this spring.
