Based on Julia Quinn's novels, show set in Regency-era England
Bridgerton is currently the most-watched series on Netflix, grabbing the number 1 spot in 76 countries on the streamer. The show, adapted from novels by American historical romance author Julia Quinn, follows the life of Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor, a young woman living in England in the early 1800s. To escape societal pressures, she falsifies romance with the wealthy Simon Bassett (Regé-Jean Page).
Expect more steaminess in Season 2, says Bailey
The second season will be based on the second book in Quinn's Bridgerton series, The Viscount Who Loved Me. The second book sees the pursuit of a suitable marriage for Anthony, Viscount Bridgerton, the eldest Bridgerton son. Bailey told fans last month to expect more "steaminess" in Season 2, adding, "I think the expression of sex in this show is so important."
'Bridgerton,' created by Shonda Rhimes, premiered on Christmas last year
The American period drama series premiered on Christmas last year and is created by Shonda Rhimes of Grey's Anatomy fame. Besides Coughlan, Bailey, Dynevor, and Newton, the series also features Claudia Jessie as Eloise Bridgerton, Ruby Barker as Marina Thompson, Luke Thompson as Benedict Bridgerton, Ruby Stokes as Francesca Bridgerton, Will Tilston as Gregory Bridgerton, and Florence Hunt as Hyacinth Bridgerton, among others.
