Netflix has dropped new character posters for its highly anticipated series Bridgerton season 2 welcoming 11 new and returning characters to the latest season of the Regency era. All set to release on the streamer in a few weeks, Bridgerton season 2 will introduce the viewers to a brand new love story between the eldest Bridgerton sibling, Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey) and the latest entrant Kate Sharma (played by Simone Ashley).
The second season harps on the trials of Anthony who is pursuit of a suitable wife and will see him cross paths with Kate and her sister Edwina (played by Charithra Chandran). Although he tries to pay attention to Edwina, his attempts are thwarted by Kate who understands that true love does not figure highly in his intentions. However, in doing so, their verbal sparring matches bring them closer complicating things on both sides.
Phoebe Dynevor returns as Daphne Bridgerton but Rege-Jean Page, who left hearts aflutter last season as her husband Simon, the Duke of Hastings will not be reprising his role in the second season. In keeping with author Julia Quinn’s books, Bridgerton season 2 will focus on Anthony’s hunt for a bride now that he has ended things with opera singer Siena (Sabrina Bartlett).
Besides Kate, Anthony and Edwina, the character posters show the returning players like Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan), Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie), Lady Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell), Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh), Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel), Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) and Benedict Bridgerton (Luke Thompson). Bridgerton season 2 premieres Friday, March 25 on Netflix.
