Fans Finally Get A Glimpse Of Bridgerton Season 2 In New Trailer

Even if you're not an avid fan of a dramatic period piece, it's hard to ignore the charm of Netflix's "Bridgerton." In the show, which is set within 19th century London high society, men and women alike balance the pressures of finding love — with a suitable partner for the times, of course — while ignoring the urge to engage in forbidden, steamy encounters. (Don't worry, though: The show has still managed to include plenty of delightfully raunchy scenes.) The first season of the show, which premiered on Netflix on Christmas Day in 2020, followed the eldest daughter of the Bridgerton family, Daphne, as she fell in love with the Duke of Hastings, per the Hollywood Reporter. At the time of its premiere, "Bridgerton" became Netflix's most popular project, boasting a viewership of at least 82 million households within the first month of its time on the streaming platform, according to Marie Claire.

The television show is based on author Julie Quinn's series of eight romance novels that follow the eight Bridgerton siblings' separate quests for love. Since the first season followed the first book in the series, "The Duke & I," it would make sense that the second season would then follow the second book, "The Viscount Who Loved Me," per Marie Claire. In January, Netflix announced that a second season of "Bridgerton" would be coming in March 2022 — along with a third and fourth season later that have yet to be filmed.

The trailer for Season 2 of Bridgerton reveals a love triangle involving Lord Anthony Bridgerton

The wait is nearly over. On Wednesday, ahead of the March 25 premiere of "Bridgerton" Season 2 on Netflix, the streaming platform released its official trailer. If anything, the trailer confirms what many had suspected — that the second season would be following the second book in Julie Quinn's series. In the trailer, the eldest Bridgerton sibling, Lord Anthony Bridgerton, portrayed by Jonathan Bailey, is on his own journey to find love. The eldest Bridgerton begins courting Edwina Sharma, though finds a certain undeniable attraction to her disapproving older sister, Kate Sharma, per People. Throughout the trailer, Lord Anthony appears to struggle between giving in to his attraction to Kate and fulfilling his duty to Edwina.

Other beloved "Bridgerton" characters will also be returning to the series, including Daphne Bridgerton, who is without her husband, the Duke of Hastings. Regé-Jean Page, who portrayed the duke in the first season of the show, previously confirmed to many distraught fans that he would not be returning to reprise his role in the series, per the Hollywood Reporter. It's still unclear how his absence will be explained in the second season. Of course, Lady Whistledown, which was revealed to be Penelope Featherington, portrayed by Nicola Coughlan, is also narrating all of the juicy escapades taking place on the show. At the very end of the trailer, it is suggested that a plot to expose Featherington as Lady Whistledown might be taking place as well.
