Season two of the Netflix series Bridgerton is out. The romantic, scandalous, and clever Bridgerton season two returns to celebrate the timelessness of enduring friendships, families finding their way, and the search for a love that conquers all.

From Shondaland and Creator Chris Van Dusen, this season follows Lord Anthony Bridgerton played by Jonathan Bailey, the eldest Bridgerton sibling, and Viscount, as he sets out to find a suitable wife.

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. Across Grosvenor Square, the Featheringtons must welcome 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.
