Get ready for another boardwalk. Bridgeton became an instant hit upon its Netflix debut on Christmas Day — and fans aren’t the only ones yearning for more.
The series follows the Bridgerton family – played by Jonathan Bailey, Phoebe Dynevor, Claudia Jessica, Luke Newton, Luke Thompson, Florence Hunt, Will Tilston and Ruth Gemell – while trying to find love in Regency-era high society. In season 1, eldest sister Daphne (Dynevor) and her relationship with London’s best bachelor Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) drew much of the story’s focus.
Before the historical drama was officially renewed, rumors of a second season surfaced when it was reported that production was due to resume in England in March. After reaching more than 63 million homes, Bridgeton is almost guaranteed to return for more. But even the cast doesn’t know what could happen next.
“We all really hope so [it will be renewed]“, breakout star Nicola Coughlan (aka Penelope Featherington) narrates diversity in December 2020. “It is a real pleasure to do and the response has exceeded our wildest dreams. But until the Netflix gods come down and bless us, we won’t know.”
Although the details are kept top secret, the creator is Chris VanDusen has big ideas for the continuation of the show based on Julia Quinn‘s popular romance book series. The author gave each member of the Bridgerton family their own chance to shine – and Van Dusen hopes to do the same.
“Obviously we are just concentrating on the first season at the moment. And while that focuses on eldest Bridgerton daughter Daphne and her love affair with Simon, we do know that there are eight Bridgerton siblings [and] there are eight Bridgeton Books,” said Van Dusen Cosmopolitan Britain in December 2020. “So of course, if successful, I’d love to be able to explore love stories and romance for all the Bridgerton brothers and sisters.”
However, viewers haven’t seen the last of Daphne and Simon, who seem to become happily ever after in the final moments of season one. Page previously hinted that things could still go wrong for the pair if they return for new episodes.
“I think love is an evolving thing,” said the British heartthrob TV program shortly after the premiere of the show. “It’s a living, breathing thing that needs care, that needs tending, that needs repairing when it’s worn out or torn. They marry very young. You still have a lot to grow. They have a lot to do and I think it will always be fun to watch them do it together.”
Four months later, Netflix announced that Page would not be returning for Season 2.
