This is the season eldest Bridgerton son, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) intends to find a wife, as his mother archly announces at the season’s first ball in the official season two trailer for Netflix’s global hit, Bridgerton.
The trailer reveals a burgeoning love triangle between Anthony and the Sharma sisters, Edwina (Charithra Chandran) and Kate (Simone Ashley), with Kate being the more difficult to tame.
“I cannot be the only one wondering if this former capital ‘R’ rake is ready to flourish,” asks Lady Whistledown (narrator Julie Andrews).
The sets and costumes of Bridgerton remain as lavish as ever, with nearly every scene festooned with fresh flowers and every gown adorned with jewels.
The trailer also offers glimpses of the Duke and Duchess of Hastings’ new baby. While the Duke (Regé-Jean Page) will not be in this season of the show after Page broke out globally in season one, eldest Bridgerton sister Daphne (Phoebe Dyvenor) does appear.
“It is a poor player who plays the game and a wise one who plays their opponent,” Daphne says, before what appears to be a fiercely played game of croquet.
Daphne also imparts her wisdom on love and courting: “Has this young lady truly won your heart? The one that makes it impossible for you to look away from them at any given moment?”
As the trailer goes on, it seems to get more and more difficult for Anthony to look away.
Produced by Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland, Bridgerton is executive produced by Rhimes, Betsy Beers, Tom Verica and Chris Van Dusen. Van Dusen is also creator and showrunner. The series is based on the best-selling novels by Julia Quinn.
Season two of Bridgerton premieres Friday, March 25 on Netflix.
