Bridgerton season two has wrapped filming and will be released in 2022

My favorite regency era series has finally wrapped filming season two. After several set shut downs due to COVID, Bridgerton season two will premiere sometime in 2022. Showrunner Chris Van Dusen tweeted a picture with Simone Ashley (Kate Sharma) and Jonathan Bailey (Anthony Bridgerton) along with a message that season two has wrapped. Florence Hunt (Hyacinth Bridgerton) and Polly Walker (Portia Featherington) also posted to their Instastories about finishing up season two. Below are a few more details from Entertainment Tonight Canada:

“That’s a wrap on Season Two! So proud of this cast and crew who brought their A-games to work each and every day in this very challenging year,” Van Dusen wrote in a caption that accompanied a photo of him hugging season 2 stars Jonathan Bailey (Anthony Bridgerton) and Simone Ashley (Kate Sharma). “And these two in this photo with me right here,” he added, referring to the actors. “Words are not enough. Coming in 🔥🔥 in 2022.” Van Dusen closed the post with “#BuckleUp.”

Shortly after Van Dusen shared the news, “Bridgerton” began to trend on Twitter. Eagle-eyed fans of the show shared photos from the show’s wrap party that were originally captured and posted by crew members from the show.

Actors Florence Hunt and Polly Walker were among the cast members who also posted on social media about the show wrapping. Hunt posted a photo on her Instagram story of flowers she received to celebrate the end of filming. Walker, meanwhile, shared a snap of a corset and a lock of her character’s signature red hair.

“Bridgerton” season 2 did not have a smooth road to completion. Filming was shut down indefinitely in July after the production was hit with a second positive case of COVID within a week. However, filming resumed in August and progressed steadily from that point on.

Although Bridgerton season two might not be out until later in the year, I am excited about it. I was afraid that we would have to wait until 2023. Based on the first look I think season two will be better than expected. As I’ve mentioned, I did not like Anthony Bridgerton in the show. Anthony in the series was pretty one note and I am sure the writers did that purposely so that Daphne and Simone stood out more. I have read the second book in the series and I really like Anthony and Kate’s story. I hope that the writers stick as close as possible to the book. Until Bridgerton comes out, I will be using season two of The Witcher and Emily in Paris to keep me company.

    Yay!!! I wonder what “2022″ means though. Maybe summer? I associate Bridgerton with winter just because it was released last year around christmas, but I really hope they’re not going to make us wait until november or december 2022 lol.

    I’m excited for Kate and Anthony’s story. They definitely made Anthony way more of an ahole in the first season than he is in the first book, so now they are going to have to backtrack a bit and let us into his head more so that we can forgive that behavior (for example, blocking Daphne’s suitors does not happen in the book.)

    Wow that was quick! I would have thought filming would have 2-3 weeks left at least. I wonder if it’ll air in Spring 2022 to coincide with the start of the “season” or even earlier on Valentine’s Day (but that does seem a bit early)

    The release date for the TV cover tie in of the book is April, so possibly we’re getting an Easter release.

    I’m very excited about this season. I think I say this in every Bridgerton post, but book two is much better that book one. The writers have set themselves something of a hurdle though because they really threw Anthony under the bus in season one to make Simon and Daphne more likable than their book counterparts and now they have to make people like for and root for a character they made people dislike in the first season. The little sneak peak gives me hope.

    I’m so excited for season 2. I didn’t even finish season 1 at first because I lost interest in the mains, but then I saw the season 2 preview and that one-minute clip got me hyperfixated on season 2 before I even read the book. Like others have said before, it’s like horny Elizabeth and Darcy, and I am here for it. I think making Anthony a bigger ass in Season 1 will make him more likeable in Season 2 because he’ll both get his comeuppance but also his redemption arc, and Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley have crazy chemistry in just that one clip.
