‘Bridgerton’ Season 2 First Look, Star Saniyya Sidney To Portray Civil Rights Icon
The second season of Bridgerton- one of Netflix’s biggest series ever is coming in a few weeks and we’ve got the first look! And it looks like the ton will STILL be abuzz for Season 2.
King Richard star Saniyya Sidney is set to play a civil rights icon, Claudette Colvin. This being Anthony Mackie’s directorial debut.
Before “Squid Game” premiered, “Bridgerton” was Netflix’s biggest series ever with a record 82 million households that viewed the series in the first 28 days online. And the ton is still abuzz!
The “Bridgerton” cast and crew struggled through a hard season of filming, since season 2 was shut down multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Cast and crew members were popping up with positive tests. However, they were able to wrap everything up by the end of 2021.
Now, the second season is ready to premiere. The Shondaland series is available Friday, March 25th. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Bridgerton” will feature returning cast members and it will also welcome new cast members for the second installment of Julia Quinn’s historical romance novel, “The Viscount Who Loved Me.” And the network just released a few teaser flicks to get fans excited about the new season.
In keeping with the tradition of the novels, the 19th-century period drama tells the romance story of Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s quest for love. In the newly released flicks, we see Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and boo’d up on the dance floor with Katharine “Kate” Sharma (Simone Ashley), which will be the main focus of season 2. The scene sort of reminds us of how Daphne and Simon’s first dance went down in Season 1.
In the flicks, we also see Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) will make a return sans her husband Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page).
In April 2021, Regé confirmed he would not return to reprise his role as the Duke of Hastings in Season 2. Bummer.
Bridgerton” is based on Julia Quinn’s novels. Fans who have read the book were not surprised to learn about Page’s departure. Fans who haven’t read the novels were blindsided when his departure was made public. Especially since he got married and had a baby with Daphne at the end of Season 1.
It’s all good though. Simone Ashley looks like she’ll be the show’s newest breakout star this season.
By the way, Netflix has already given the greenlight for Seasons 3 & 4.
