Lady Whistledown Just Reported that ‘Bridgerton’ Has Officially Been Renewed for Season 2

Just one day after Netflix teased “exciting” Bridgerton news, the hit drama series has officially been renewed for a second season. And the streaming service broke the news in the best way possible.

Early Thursday, Lady Whistledown announced the exciting information in the form of her gossip column. In addition to the renewal news, the pamphlet also confirmed that the second installment will start filming this spring in the U.K. and even teased what viewers can expect.


“Dearest Readers,

The ton are abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honor to impart to you: Bridgerton shall officially return for a second season. I do hope you have stored a bottle of ratafia for this most delightful occasion,” the letter reads. “The incomparable acts of Bridgerton will return to production in the Spring of 2021. This author has been reliably informed that Lord Anthony Briderton intends to dominate the social season. I will have my pen ready to report on any and all of his romantic activities.” That’s right—looks like Anthony is finally going to get a love story of his own.

But don’t expect any more information from Lady Whistledown in the near future. She continued, “However, gentle reader, before you set the comments section alight with requests for more sordid details, know that I am disinclined to report on the particulars at this time. Patience, after all, is a virtue.”

A full cast return, production start date and even a plot teaser? Calling this “exciting news” was a total understatement.
