Bridgerton was a huge hit for Netflix when it debuted on Christmas Day last year, with audience captivated by the blossoming love story between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dyvenor) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page).
The series soon became known for its raunchy and full-frontal sex scenes, the series was watched by 82 million households in the first month of its release.
The second season will follow the eldest Bridgerton sibling Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey) in his quest for love.
The Viscount Who Loved Me sees Anthony fall for Edwina Sharma initially, before turning his attentions towards her older sister, Kate.
Newcomer Charithra Chandran is thought to have landed the role of Edwina Rupert Young, who is known for roles in Merlin, Doctor Who and Doc Martin has also been cast in a major role, Deadline reports.
The series is based on a collection of nine books written by Julia Quinn.
