From the moment Netflix announced Bridgerton season 2 was at the works, enthusiasts were eager for any information regarding when another season of Netflix’s breakout romantic play will arrive.
Debuting in December 2020, Bridgerton season 1 quickly caught the interest of Netflix audiences in telling the love story of Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and also the Duke of Hastings Simon Basset (Rege-Jean Page) in an epic and sweeping Regency-era set romantic period piece.
The show was able to become the most-watched Netflix Original to date and it wasn’t long after Netflix bet big on the show in handing out a surprise two-season renewal only weeks after picking the series up for season 2.
Even though season 2 will be without the Duke of Hastings since Page was only signed on the series by means of a one-piece bargain, there’s a whole lot to look forward to in season 2 and beyond! Season 2 will put the focus on Anthony Bridgerton and his quest for love with what promises to be another eventful and sweeping season full of romance and drama. Unfortunately, though, it seems we might be in for a longer than anticipated split between seasons.
When Is Bridgerton Season 2 Coming Out?
Throughout a shareholder call on April 20, Netflix asserted the next half of 2021 would feature the launch of a handful of anticipated titles. In a printed shareholder letter, Netflix touted that tentpole shows such as The Witcher, Money Heist and You are coming in 2021.
The move was designed to showcase some of the upcoming quarters’ biggest releases to shareholders in hopes of highlighting the exciting shows coming after this year. Noticeably missing from the list was Bridgerton season 2 that sent up some deep red flags and has us wondering if Netflix just confirmed that season 2 will not be coming in 2021.
Considering how big the show was for Netflix, one has to imagine that Netflix would wish to promote the series’s second season as a significant occasion for the final months of 2021. Sure we know not revealing their hand too soon with an exact release date, but would no one want to promote to investors that their main show of 2020 would be arriving if a 2021 release was in the cards?
At this time, it’s essential to be aware that there no official release date was declared by Netflix; however, when you factor in that production season 2 is only just gearing up to begin, an early 2022 release date doesn’t appear that far-fetched.
