"Bridgerton" Is Coming Back For A Third And Fourth Season
Rejoice, dear readers! Netflix has renewed Bridgerton for two more seasons, just in time to coincide with the ongoing production for the second season. The renewal announcement for the Regency-era romance series was made in the form of Lady Whistledown's trademark society paper.
The news comes just after fan-favourite, Regé-Jean Page confirmed his exit as the charming Duke of Hastings in season two. But given the popularity of the show—watched by a whopping 82 million households around the world—the two-season renewal is not surprising. The series catapulted its cast to stardom overnight and brought back Regency-era-inspired fashion and jewellery to life.
While nothing has been revealed so far, season two is set to focus on another Bridgerton sibling, Anthony, who is in search of his viscountess. With that in mind, and following the books by Julia Quinn which the series is based on, we can expect season three to focus on Benedict Bridgerton, with season four exploring Colin Bridgerton's story.
"From the first time I read Julia Quinn’s delicious Bridgerton series, I knew these were stories that would captivate a viewing audience. But the evolution of this adaptation would not be a success without the many significant contributions of the entire Shondaland team," said executive producer, Shonda Rhimes of the renewal.
"This two-season pickup is a strong vote of confidence in our work and I feel incredibly grateful to have partners as collaborative and creative as Netflix. Betsy and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue bringing the world of Bridgerton to a worldwide audience," she adds.
Bridgerton is set in the lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society where viewers are taken to the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic places of Park Lane and beyond. The romance drama established itself as a seductive period piece looking at dramatic power struggles on top of its steamy love story. The eight Bridgerton siblings each navigate the marriage market during the London society, in search of adventure, love and their own self.
