Even though we already know that Regé-Jean Page, the true star of season one, won’t return to Bridgerton, Netflix announced, Tuesday, April 13, that the popular period drama will also have seasons 3 and 4.
Seasons 3 and 4 of Bridgerton
Netflix has just ordered two additional seasons of the immensely popular period drama, which was launched during Christams time in 2020.
Two of the show’s executive producers, Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers cleared up the future of the show. They announced the two additional seasons during an interview.
Bridgerton was a huge hit for Netflix when it debuted. Audiences were captivated by the sexy love story between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dyvenor) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page).
With full frontal and raunchy sex scenes, the series was viewed by 82 million households in the first month of its release.
The second season of the period drama
Season two will follow Bridgerton’s older brother Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey) on his quest for love.
“The Viscount Who Loved Me”, the book on which the second season is based, sees Anthony interested in Edwina Sharma. But, quite soon, he turns his attention to her older sister, Kate.
Newcomer Charithra Chandran has landed the role of Edwina. Rupert Young, who starred in Merlin and Doctor Who, has been cast in a major, but unknown, role.
The two cast members join Sex Education star Simone Ashley. The actress has been cast as lead Kate Sharma in the upcoming season.
The series is based on a saga of nine books written by Julia Quinn. Each one of them follows the Bridgerton siblings in their quest of love.
