Bridgerton fans, get excited: our first look at the long-awaited second season is here.
Netflix has released new shots of what we can look forward to this time around - with his time, it's down to eldest son Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) to find a match.
The synopsis from Netflix reads: "Driven by his duty to uphold the family name, Anthony’s search for a debutante who meets his impossible standards seems ill-fated until Kate (Simone Ashley) and her younger sister Edwina (Charithra Chandran) Sharma arrive from India.
"When Anthony begins to court Edwina, Kate discovers the true nature of his intentions — a true love match is not high on his priority list — and decides to do everything in her power to stop the union. But in doing so, Kate and Anthony’s verbal sparring matches only bring them closer together, complicating matters on both sides."
There's drama beyond the Bridgerton estate too - with the Featheringtons welcoming the newest heir to their estate while Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) continues to navigate the ton whilst keeping her deepest secret from the people closest to her.
A number of returning favourites will appear in season two of the Netflix smash, including Phoebe Dynevor as the newly-wed Daphne Basset, Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury and Golda Rosheuvel as the haughty Queen Charlotte.
However, Bridgerton break-out star Rége-Jean Page, who many of us "burned for" thanks to his smouldering good looks, will not be returning as Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings.
Explaining his decision to leave the show to Entertainment Weekly, the 33-year-old explained: "It's a one-season arc. It's going to have a beginning, middle, end—give us a year.
"It felt like a limited series. I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit and then the Bridgerton family rolls on."
He instead will be starring in action film The Gray Man, as well as the film adaptation of popular board game Dungeons and Dragons.
Bridgerton season two launches on Friday 25th March only on Netflix.
