Well, well, well, look whose horny-ass couldn’t get enough of Bridgerton season one and is looking for more. Now, that the second season confirmed by Netflix, we can officially get all hot-and-bothered again for round two.
According to Netflix, the show has been viewed by 63 million households worldwide (that’s a lot of horndogs). I think mostly because Regé Jean-Page is a sight for sore eyes. But you know, the show is also pretty good.
There is no official release date yet, but we do know season two will follow the story of the second novel by Julie Quinn, The Viscount Who Loved Me.
“The first season was about Daphne and it followed her relationship, her love story with Simon. And the Bridgerton books —there are eight books, they are about eight siblings. And in success, I would love to be able to explore stories and romances for every Bridgerton sibling. Of course, I would love to be able to do that,” Bridgerton series creator Chris Van Dunsen told The Wrap.
The second book follows Anthony Bridgerton, the oldest sibling and the head-honcho of the Bridgerton estate.
So based on the book, here are the major plot points to expect. Warning: spoilers incoming.
Uh Oh. Not another bee/human romance??? Please no! God no! I’m too scarred from Bee Movie.
Ok no that won’t be a storyline, but apparently the motif of bees is very important for the next season. You may have noticed the bees featured in the first season. We made a list of all the bee references that you can check out here.
The reason they are important is because in the second book, it’s revealed that Viscount Edmund Bridgerton died at age 38 from a bee sting. Anthony is shocked and terrified he will score the same fate, hence his fear of bees.
In The Viscount Who Loved Me, someone close to Anthony gets stung by a bee, sending him into a panic.
Now That We Know Who Lady Whisteldown Is, What Happens Next?
Remember how in the final episode, Penelope Featherington was revealed to be Lady Whisteldown? Well it looks like the actor behind the character (Nicola Coughlan) thought an early reveal was a smart move.
“The script was being written while we were filming, so at one point, they thought of doing a red herring. But I always thought it was best to reveal it, because the books have been around for 20 years, so someone could just Google it,” Coughlin told BAZAAR US.
“The audience knowing that she’s Whistledown, that’s going to be amazing, because it’s like they’re in on the secret,” she added.
A New Romance For Anthony Bridgerton
In The Viscount Who Loved Me, Anthony finally finds a woman to marry (after being such a tool last season). This woman is Edwina Sheffield, however the only obstacle is her sister Kate.
Plenty Of Scandal & Sexual Tension
This is where it gets good, because despite wanting to marry Edwina, Anthony can’t help but dream of Kate in his erotic dreams at night. OOOOOH BABY.
Kate is funny, sarcastic and hates Anthony. Anthony is calm, cynical and hates Kate. But their hate for each other ends up creating some mad sexual tension, and I’ll let you figure out the rest.
Who Will Play Anthony Bridgerton’s Love Interest?
Sex Education star Simone Ashley is locked in to play Kate Sharma (Kate Sheffield in the books) and what a perfect choice TBH.
Kate’s surname has been changed to Sharma as a way to acknowledge the character’s South Asian heritage.
Ashley plays Olivia Hanan, one of the ‘The Untouchables’ in Sex Education. She has also appeared in Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) and Broadchurch (2013). But after Bridgerton, who knows where she’ll go next.
Ahh I can’t wait. Please hurry up, so I can binge it all immediately.
