When Bridgerton made its way onto Netflix in December 2020, it became an instant hit, garnering over 82 million viewers in the first 28 alone.
It came as no surprise, then, that the steamy period drama was quickly granted a season 2 renewal, leaving fans eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new episodes.
Finally, in March 2022, Bridgerton Season 2 is finally set to drop, but when is the exact release time of the new episode and what can fans expect?
Bridgerton season 1 recap
Season 1 of Bridgerton trotted onto our screens on December 25th, 2020.
Based on the novel series by Julia Quinn, the historical drama tells the story of the Bridgerton family and their many siblings, with young Daphne making her debut debut and winning many potential suitors when she is named Diamond of the Season.
But despite many suitable matches, Daphne’s head was turned by the mischievous and brooding Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset.
While Simon is initially opposed to the idea of marrying Daphne, the couple eventually ties the knot and as Season 1 ends, she gives birth to the couple’s first child.
Elsewhere, Anthony Bridgerton has served as head of the family since her father’s death, but was secretly in a relationship with opera singer Siena Rosso, although the couple split at the end of season one and he was looking for a wife for his own.
Finally, Season 1 was also haunted by the mystery of Lady Whistledown, an anonymous person who writes letters exposing gossip and secrets about “the bin”.
Eloise thought she had found Lady Whistledown in the form of Genevieve, but it was revealed in the final episode of Season 1 that Penelope had been the mysterious rumor mill.
