Howbeit Lady Whistledown forgot to abreast us that Bridgerton Season 2’s filming has finally on its way. Yet the creator recently titillated the fans by sharing some sneak peek of Bridgerton Season 2. Well, the last season took us back to the Regency era. There, it explored the eldest Bridgerton daughter Daphne’s quest to find a husband who can offer both high status and passion. But now, the second season would shift its focus entirely on the other sibling of Bridgerton. So let’s see how things will move now.
Bridgerton Season 2: Pilot Title Revealed
Lately, on June 14, creator Chris Van Dusen amused the fans with the first episode script picture of the second season. It confirmed that “Capital R Rake,” will be the title of the pilot episode. It’s written by Van Dusen himself and directed by Tricia Brock, who recently joined the second season. Well, this phrase Rake had used plenty of times in the first season, implying “lovable scoundrel,” which is a Regency-era term.
It means a person having several relationships but may seem interested in marriage. It clearly hints that the upcoming season would revolve around Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), philandering Bridgerton’s sibling. Again, we saw him jumping from one relationship to another in the last run. While marriage seems only a way for him to produce an heir.
Bridgerton Season 2: Production Still Going On?
Netflix initially confirmed that filming for the second run would begin in March 2021. However, the sudden burst of Covid’s next wave affected the production plans a bit. But we learned back in May that the second season’s filming began in April 2021 in London. Soon the picture of Kate and Anthony, along with the other cast attending the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, surfaced on the internet. Well, it’s not the first time as we saw a couple of months ago the Bridgerton’s cast attending a horserace.
Bridgerton Season 2: New Star Cast Joins The Team
Jonathan Bailey will return as Anthony while Simone Ashley will play Kate Sharma, the love of Anthony’s life. Besides, Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington will return. In addition to Simone, some new cast will also join the second run. These include Charithra Chandran as Kate’s younger sister Edwina Sharma. Besides, Shelley Conn as their mother, Lady Mary Sharma, and Calam Lynch as Theo Sharpe will join.
Rupert Young as Jack will join while Rupert Evans as Edmund will appear in Anthony’s flashback. However, Regé-Jean Page won’t be returning as Simon Bassett. But, we learned that Phoebe Dynevor would once again return as Daphne. As the second season would focus more on Daphne’s relationship with the Bridgerton family. In a recent interview, Phoebe said that now Daphne’s a grown-up woman, has a baby, and can help her brother build a new relationship.
Bridgerton Season 2: How Season 2 Will Look Like?
Fortunately, we can dig a bit into the second season as it is inspired by Julia Quinn’s second book, The Viscount Who Loved Me. It follows the story of eldest Bridgerton, Anthony, and his quest for love. So it will explore the aftermath of Anthony’s fiancée’s rejection and his older sister’s action after this event. Well, we can expect that it would follow a bit the same as the first season, where Anthony was left in the middle of the crossroad. But now, when he will meet Kate, he probably experiences how it feels to be in love.
Bridgerton Season 2: When To Expect?
As of now, it must be wrong to expect the second season to drop until the end of this year. The first season of filming took nine months to conclude, and that too in the pre-pandemic world. Now, the second season’s filming began in early spring. So, we can’t expect that it would return in the fall or winter of 2021. So, probably Bridgerton Season 2 would air sometime in mid-2022.
