The second season of the Netflix series premieres in full on the platform on March 25 with some new faces that promise to give us that sauce that we like so much.
There were many reasons why The Bridgertonsthe first series from Shonda Rhimes’s production company, Shondaland, for Netflix, captivated us when it premiered at the end of 2020 and, although one of them – see Regé Jean Page as Simon Basset – does not repeat in the second season, The rest of the reasons why fiction became the most watched new series on the platform will make an appearance again in the new episodes that arrive on the streaming platform on March 25.
At its center will not be the love story of Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon, but, instead, we will see how the older brother of the Bridgertons, anthony (Jonathan Bailey) sets out to find the best wife and, along the way, ends up falling madly in love with someone who was not meant to be. The lucky one is Kate Sharma, played by the actress from sex education Simone Ashley, a character that fans of Julia Quinn’s saga of romantic novels were looking forward to seeing in fiction.
Likewise, in addition to a love story full of twists and turns and various complexities, in the second season of The Bridgertons Lady Whistledown will be doing her thing while Eloise (Claudia Jessie) and the Queen (Golda Rosheuvel) are hot on her heels, new romances will be brewing and, of course, parties between members of London’s high society will continue to be a real delight. fold of dresses of all colors, expensive jewelry, accessories and, of course, impossible hairstyles.
In fact, one of the unmistakable elements of The Bridgertons is the importance of the departments of Costume Design and Hairdressing, which a year ago occupied covers and countless fashion and beauty articles.
Creating costumes for a story set in 1813 England was certainly no easy task, but to reflect the lavish lifestyles of the upper classes of the time, the team brought in a professional who cut no corners: costume designer Ellen Mirojnick, who had to design costumes for the huge cast of the series multiplied by the 10 dances that took place in each of the episodes of the first season -and that they will be 8 again in the second-.
In the same way, the work in the Hairdressing Department was not short either, having confessed the person in charge of it, Marc Pilcher, that She had even needed five different wigs to build a single hairstyle.
And the result of good work is more than evident. In fact, when the actors and actresses of The Bridgertons they shed their corsets, makeup and their high hairstyles, it turns out that they change a lot. You can check it out below… And by the way take a look at the great additions of the season.
Jonathan Bailey as Anthony Birdgerton
The eldest of the eight brothers of the main family was quite reluctant to fulfill the role he was destined to assume in his family in the first installment of the series, but in the second he will be looking among the new debutantes of the social season for the ideal girl to become his wife. In the process, the young man will be involved in a love triangle that promises to give us many salsa moments.
Simone Ashley isKate Sharma
We lose Regé-Jean Page, but we gain Simone Ashley as Kate Sharma in the second season of The Bridgertons. The young woman has just arrived from India with her mother and her sister and the sparks will jump from the first moment.
However, the real suitor of the older Bridgerton is not Kate, but Edwina (charithra chandran), her younger sister, so the matter promises to get complicated at the first change.
Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington
It is one of our favorites, since it is none other than Lady Whistledown herself. While we will see an unstoppable Penelope from the role of a gossipy writer wanting to expose anyone’s dirty laundry, her most innocent side will continue to arouse a lot of tenderness. And it seems that, according to Nicola Coughlan, her great opportunity with Colin Bridgerton will take place in the new episodes.
Golda Rosheuvel is Queen Charlotte
We recently discovered that the British actress Golda Rosheuvel actually wanted to be Lady Danbury in The Brigdertons, and when Adjoa Andoh was cast in the role, the team suggested she try out to be the Queen. One of the few real historical figures in the series, the character of Queen Charlotte not only enchants us, but will also be the subject of her own spin-off.
Claudia Jessie as Eloise Bridgerton
The most charismatic sister of the Bridgerton family is not going to get rid of participating as a newcomer in the new social season but, as in the first installment, she will be much more focused on unmasking the person behind Lady Whistledown than on finding the love. Will she get to experience it herself even so?
Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Bridgerton
We will not see Regé-Jean Page as Simon Basset again, but we will see Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne. Her role will not be in the center of the target as in the first installment, but of course it will be key for her brother, with whom she can share all her experience, which is not little.
Luke Thompson as Benedict Bridgerton
The second brother by birth order in the Bridgerton family has yet to star in his big moment, but, while the season focused on his particular story arrives, we will continue to get to know him a little more, since, at least to date, he is the brother more mysterious and interested in exploring other possibilities in life.
Luke Newton isColin Bridgerton
Poor Colin had a big disappointment with Marina in season 1 of The Bridgertons, so he decided to leave… However, the character played by Luke Newton will not only continue to be present in this new stage of the series, but also seems that he will move towards someone who until now was only his friend, but who loves him above all else.
Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury
A key figure in the life of Simon Basset and an important presence in high society, Lady Danbury promises to organize at least some of the big events of season 2 of The Bridgertons.
Charithra Chandran as Edwina Sharma
And finally, let’s not forget to take a look at another of the most important additions of season 2. Charithra Chandran is Edwina Sharma, the true suitor of Anthony Bridgerton before the young man has a real crush on his sister, Kate.
