The racy period drama has become Netflix’s biggest hit ever with over 80 million households having tuned in to watch it. Now fans are looking forward to season two and the show’s Lady Danbury, Adjoa Andoh has revealed today what viewers can expect to see next.
Speaking to Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard on Good Morning Britain earlier today, the 58-year-old actress said she couldn’t “give anything away.”
“It’s more than my life is worth to do that,” she added.
“All that I can tell you is that we are definitely coming back,” she confirmed. “We are getting all geared up at the moment in recording mode once again.”
However, she did go on to tease to the hosts some tidbits from the next series: “There are going to be great new love stories going on because there are a lot of Bridgerton children to get married off.”
Indeed the Bridgerton book series, which is comprised of eight novels by Julia Quinn, has each book focus on a different child as they grow up and find love.
After the first novel The Duke and I, which the first season is based on, focusing on Daphne (played by Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke (Regé-Jean Page), the second book, The Viscount Who Loved Me, focuses on the eldest of the Bridgerton siblings, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey).
Andoh also shared her hopes for her own character, Lady Danbury saying: “Hopefully you’ll see more of Lady Danbury being assertive and plotting and encouraging those young girls, the Penelopes and the Eloises, and hanging out with the Queen a bit more.”
“There is lots to come,” added the actress.
Speaking about her initial reaction when meeting her character, Andoh said: “When I was sent Lady Danbury to read, she just jumped off the page.
“She is super fun to play, she is fiery, smart, she is sharp, she is very strategic, she can spot someone who is talking rubbish straight away and she will call them out on it, but she can also see the ones who are really vulnerable and will scoop them up.
“She has the ear of the Queen, she is independently wealthy, she is a widow, so for a woman in that period, she is probably better placed than anybody else.
“So she has just got this huge appetite for life and she is just loving it,” said the actress.

Andoh also added that she thought the character was a “corker,” the type of role that “when you get them you have to grab them, say ‘Give it to me, me, I want it’.
“Then you have to live up to the material, you have to live up to the woman,” she said.
Commenting on the inclusive and diverse nature the show has been praised for, the actress said: “I think one of the things I have loved the most about the show is that it has this broad embrace, this broad welcome that says ‘You can be gay, you can be of any colour, you can be a feminist’, anybody can watch this, anybody is welcome.”
Yesterday, Quinn also appeared on Lorraine, spaeking abotu the show’s success and season two.
“I haven’t seen the scripts, I can’t tell you exactly what happens but I did write the book it’s based on, so I have some idea,” she said.
“I don’t think anybody wants to say goodbye to the Duke right now,” said Quinn, refusing to confirm his return.
Quinn so far has been happy with how Netflix adapted her work telling Lorraine: “I thought it was incredible.
“It’s not word for word, it’s not exact but the characters are still absolutely true to who they were. The overall story is absolutely true to what it was.”
Bridgerton is available to stream on Netflix now.
