The hit series resumed production in August.
Netflix is amping up the already anticipated season 2 of Bridgerton. The streaming service dropped the official first look at the upcoming season, which will follow Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and his quest to find a suitable wife.
The teaser was released as part of Saturday's TUDUM event, which featured Bailey, Nicola Coughlan, and new cast member Simone Ashley, who plays Anthony's love interest, Kate Sharma. The trio were also joined by newcomer Charithra Chandran, who portrays Kate's younger sister Edwina.
The snippet shows Kate confronting Anthony over his open requirements for a wife, telling him: "When you manage to find this paragon of virtue, what makes you think she will accept your suit? Are the ladies of London to be so easily won by a pleasing smile and absolutely nothing more?"
"Your character is as deficient as your horsemanship", she concludes before leaving.
The sneak peek also includes footage of the cast members discussing the show on set.
Bridgerton, based on Julia Quinn's bestselling novels, became a smash hit following its premiere in 2020. The first season focused on the romance between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). The new season is based on The Viscount Who Loved Me, the second book in the series, and Bailey's character will take center stage.
Bailey previously teased Bridgerton's second season while speaking to British Vogue in January. "It's mad, and it's brilliant. There are also going to be a lot of brilliant characters introduced in this series —and it's not just Anthony that we're going to delve into."
The beloved period drama resumed production in early August following two separate COVID-related haults. Bridgerton had previously entered an indefinite hiatus after people involved in the series tested positive for COVID-19, though it remains unclear whether the cases were among cast or crew members.
