Bridgerton is officially coming back for season 2, Netflix announced Thursday. The hit series seemed a sure thing for renewal given its popularity around the world, but fans had been eagerly awaiting the news since the show’s Christmas debut.
The Shondaland series, based on a series of romance novels by Julia Quinn, follows the wealthy Bridgerton family in Regency England as each of eight siblings seeks to navigate London’s cutthroat marriage market and societal expectations.
“The show was always set out to be primarily one book per season,” showrunner Chris Van Dusen previously told EW. For those looking to get an early start on the sophomore season’s potential arc, the second book in Quinn’s series is The Viscount Who Loved Me.
The crucial role of Kate is still to be cast, and production on the new season is set to begin this spring.
