Netflix, in true ‘Bridgerton’ style, has announced they have greenlit both seasons 3 and 4 of the series without season 2 even hitting our small screens yet.
With Regé-Jean Page now out of the picture and not returning to the show, Season 2 is now in production and in keeping with the novels, tells a new romance story – that of Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s quest for love.
Here is Lady Whistledown’s fancy announcement of the upcoming seasons.
Based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, the show is set in the sexy, lavish, and competitive world of Regency London high society. From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground. At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family. Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring, and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure, and love.
Show creator, Shonda Rhimes said “From the first time I read Julia Quinn’s delicious Bridgerton series, I knew these were stories that would captivate a viewing audience. But the evolution of this adaptation would not be a success without the many significant contributions of the entire Shondaland team. This two-season pickup is a strong vote of confidence in our work and I feel incredibly grateful to have partners as collaborative and creative as Netflix. Betsy and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue bringing the world of Bridgerton to a worldwide audience.”
The show is executive produced by Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, and Chris Van Dusen.
