Bridgerton Season 2 Premiere Date Announced in a Delightful Cast Video

In celebration of Bridgerton‘s Christmas bow one wondrous year ago, Netflix has a gift for fans: a long-awaited Season 2 premiere date for the racy and racially inclusive Regency-era drama.

As announced by the series’ cast in the video above, the second season for the Bridgerton brood and the toils of the ton will commence Friday, March 25, 2022.

Much like author Julia Quinn’s sophomore book, the next chapter of the story will center on Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey) as he searches for a suitable bride. Said marital pursuit — specifically his turbulent romance with Kate Sharma (played by Sex Education’Simone Ashley) — will get the spotlight. In Season 1, of course, Anthony’s younger sister Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and her crush Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings (Rege-Jean Page), met, bickered and eventually got married and fell in love. In that order.

Motivated by a duty to uphold his family’s name, Anthony’s search for the perfect debutante are ill-fated until Kate and her younger sister Edwina (newcomer Charithra Chandran) arrive from India. When Anthony begins to court Edwina, Kate discovers the true nature of his intentions and does everything in her power to stop his and Edwina’s union.
