New ‘Bridgerton’ Season 2 Images Promise Drama and Sizzling Chemistry

Based on Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton book series, the Netflix adaptation was an unexpected surprise for the streaming giant. Until being dethroned by Squid Game in late 2021, Bridgerton held the record for the highest-viewed series on the service. 

With the second season on the horizon, anticipation has never been higher, especially when it comes to the season’s central romance. 

In typical romance novel structure, each season is expected to focus mainly on the love life of one of the Bridgerton siblings, with the others playing supporting, though not inconsequential roles. 

The second season will follow the romance of Viscount Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley). 

A short clip released of the two of them back in September put their crackling banter on full display, and the chemistry really comes through in still images as well.  

Fans of Bridgerton might remember that Anthony was rather the meddlesome older brother when it came to his sister Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) being courted by his old friend Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page).
