Will there be another series of Bridgerton?
While there has been no official renewal for season two of Bridgeton, there are reports it is in the works.
According to What’s On Netflix, the show was renewed ahead of the first outing even being released.
The series was in fact scheduled to film its second outing in summer 2020.
However, this never happened when coronavirus Covid-19 stopped it being able to begin.
Now, according to Production Weekly, the series will begin filming in March 2021.
Given this, fans could be waiting until 2022 to see the second outing of the show.
The stars have also opened up about wanting the series to continue into season two as well.
Speaking to press ahead of the release of season one, Penelope Featherington star Nicola Coughlan opened up about this.

In terms of returning cast, it’s not yet clear who would be back for a second outing.
However, fans will be hoping this will include leading stars Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor.
Others who might be back include Couglan, Jonathan Bailey, Julie Andrews, Claudia Jessie and Ben Miller.
