'Bridgerton' Is Netflix's Hit Series — Discover Missing Details, Plot & Season 2 Cast

"Bridgerton," which was recently announced as Netflix's biggest series ever, has been confirmed for a second season. Here is a rundown of what viewers might have missed in the debut season, as well as what to expect in the upcoming season.

Netflix has revealed that its 2020 series "Bridgerton," set in the 1800s in Britain, is now the streaming platform's biggest series since it was founded in 1997.

According to Netflix, "Bridgerton" was watched by roughly 82 million households in the first four weeks of its release. The platform also revealed that the show took the number one spot in several countries across the world.


Between the anonymous Lady Whistledown to Daphne and Simon's steamy romance, it comes as no surprise that "Bridgerton" has garnered such achievements in only a few weeks after its release.

However, despite the show's popularity, it is not uncommon to discover that viewers missed out on some important details from their favorite series.


With their status as one of the most respected families in Regency London, the Bridgertons exude class and elegance through their gorgeous home.

Show creator Chris Van Dusen reportedly admitted that the interior of the Bridgeton's home was inspired mainly by Althorp, the estate in Northamptonshire where Princess Diana grew up with her family.


Though set in the early 1800s in Britain, "Bridgerton" adopts songs from famous pop artists in the modern day time. Viewers are first introduced to this at the first ball where Ariana Grande's "Thank You Next" filled the room.

In the epic love scene featuring Simon and Daphne, Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" acts as the perfect soundtrack. There are also orchestral covers of popular songs like Shawn Mendes's "In My Blood" and Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy," amongst others.


With its captivating plot, it is no surprise that several viewers missed one crucial detail — each family in the show wore distinct color collections.

The Bridgertons would most likely be caught wearing shades of light blue and pink, while the Featheringtons often dazzled in bright colors like orange, yellow, and green.


On January 21, Netflix confirmed that "Bridgerton" would return for a second season. With the success the first season recorded, it was a much-predicted move.

Following this announcement, emotions stirred up with fans wondering what the second season will be about. As opposed to the first season, the spotlight is on Anthony Bridgerton as attention is taken away from his sister Daphne.

In season two, Anthony will be on a quest to find a wife. However, things become difficult when he is antagonized by Kate Sheffield, his love interest's sister.

Though Kate is hell-bent on protecting her sister, she soon becomes the object of Anthony's affection in a twist of fate. Will she fight his charm or succumb to fate? Only time will tell.


For its debut season, "Bridgerton" introduced many not-so-famous faces with Phoebe Dynevor acting as Daphne and Regé-Jean Page playing the charming Duke of Hastings Simon Basset.

With the conclusion of their love story in season one, the two are expected to take a step away from the spotlight but would most likely return as supporting cast members.

Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anthony Bridgerton, will undoubtedly return, and Julie Andrews, who provides the thrilling narration of Lady Whistledown.

Claudia Jessie, who plays Eloise Bridgerton, the show's feminist/scholar, is also expected to return. Same as Luke Newton, who acts as her brother Colin Bridgerton.

The shy yet mysterious character Penelope Featherington played by Nicola Coughlan will appear in the second season since she was only just revealed as Lady Whistledown.

Filming is expected to start in the spring. Though no set date has been announced, "Bridgerton" season two will return in 2022. Undoubtedly, viewers cannot wait for yet more episodes of unending entertainment.
