Bridgerton Cast Drops Hints About Season 2

Netflix's new drama Bridgerton dropped on Christmas Day and viewers have already become obsessed with it.

Based on Julia Quinn's bestselling novels, the scandalous series is produced by Scandal and Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes. It follows Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor) as she navigates the 'marriage market' of 1813.

Daphne is the eldest daughter of the Bridgerton family and she faces pressure to follow in her parent's footsteps by finding a true love match.

As her older brother rules out each and every one of her potential suitors, the mysterious narrator, Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews) begins to cast aspersions on Daphne, who becomes more incensed with Whistledown's High Society newsletter.

After meeting Simon, Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page) who is a committed bachelor, the pair strike a mutually beneficial deal to pretend to be engaged. However, things take a steamy turn when sparks fly between the pair.

There's lots of drama, sex and twists and turns in Bridgerton and of course fans have already begun to ask whether there's a second season on the horizon.

Luckily, all signs suggest another season of Bridgerton will happen and the cast are all anticipating the show's return.

Phoebe Dynevor, who plays Daphne, revealed to Elle she would love to come back return for season 2 as long as she Daphne gets to have a little fun with Anthony (Jonathan Bailey). "I want to see Daphne get involved in Anthony's love life a bit, as he sort of meddled with hers quite a lot," she said. "I think that will be fun."

Regé-Jean Page, who plays Daphne's beau Simon Basset, would like to see more of their relationship in the next season. "As far as continuing to explore characters, I think that love is an evolving thing," he told TV Guide. "It's a living, breathing thing that needs tending, that needs looking after, that needs mending when it gets worn or torn.

"They get married very young. They still have a lot of growing to do. They have a lot to do, and I think it'll always be fun to watch them do that together."

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, told Radio Times she would also like come back for more Bridgerton episodes. She said: "I'd love to go on that journey with [Penelope], to see how she's changed.

"I'd really love to come back, because I feel like we've just scratched the surface. And because there's such a huge cast in this show, there's so much more of all the characters."

We also have somewhat of an idea of what season 2 could be about. The Bridgerton book series contains eight different books which means the series creator, Chris Van Dusen, and Shonda Rhimes have no shortage of material for the next instalment. The second book in the series is titled The Viscount Who Loved Me and it focuses on Anthony's intent to marry a Sheffield daughter.
