RadioTimes.com can reveal the news after receiving written confirmation from Lady Whistledown herself (well, Netflix).

“The ton are abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honour 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,” Whistledown wrote.

Production on season two will begin in the spring of 2021, with the upcoming series looking set to focus on Anthony Bridgerton’s (Jonathan Bailey) efforts to find a wife.

“This author has been reliably informed that Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season. I will have my pen to report on any and all of his romantic activities.”

“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.”

Based on Julia Quinn’s novels of the same name, Bridgerton revolving around Regency era London’s Ton – high society – as debutantes across the town enter the competitive marriage market.
