With the second season to premiere in a fortnight, Netflix is hiking up “Bridgerton” fans’ anticipation with an official trailer of the new season.
Following the successful romance plot between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset (Rege-Jean Page) in Season 1, the trailer reveals the new players in the next romance that will focus on the eldest of the Bridgerton siblings, Anthony.
Season 2 follows Anthony as he tries to find a suitable wife, which he stresses – as in the trailer – that he would do so with his head and not his heart.
He then begins to court Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran), who arrives in London from India alongside her dour sister Kate (Simone Ashley), the latter who seems unamused by Anthony and will do anything to sabotage his plans. But in doing so, Kate and Anthony’s verbal sparring matches only bring them closer together, complicating matters on both sides.
And so it goes, your usual rivals-turn-lovers trope!
But the trailer seems to suggest more romance is in the air, as fan favourite Eloise Bridgerton seems to have met someone, while there is tension in the air as Queen Charlotte is determined to find the face behind Lady Whistledown while the Featheringtons must welcome the newest heir to their estate!
The upcoming series is set to premiere on Netflix on 25 March.
