Bridgerton is now going to become sexier.

Netflix’s regency drama, that was adapted from Julia Quinn’s best-selling romance novels, dropped its first look at the anticipated second season. This shifts its focus on to the eldest Bridgerton sibling Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), as he embarks on a quest to find a wife.  Bailey joined Saturday for Netflix virtual fan event with her co-stars Nicole Coughlan and new cast members as well.

While talking about the new season she said; “So you might discern if my wit is acceptable, my manners genteel?” she quips, as Anthony asks her if she was eavesdropping on his conversation about, as Kate calls them, “the many requirements for a wife. “You take issue with my requirements,” Anthony follows up, with Kate answering, “I take issue with any man who views women merely as chattels and breeding stock. “The chemistry between the characters is undeniable and with the witty back and forth.

Recently, Coughlan spoke with some news channels about Lauren Zima to offer an intriguing glimpse into what lies ahead in season 2 as it is going to be more romantic and spicier. As we can see back in January, Bailey revealed that the next installment in the family’s story is going to be “sexier”. It’s just going to get more exciting and convoluted and sexier, I think, at the time, adding Bridgerton will surely “be pushing boundaries every single way.” But what he does know for sure is “that the story is going to be really exciting.” 

“Having read the second book, if Anthony gets to meet anyone half as brilliant as Kate Sheffield is, then he’s going to be a very lucky man,” Bailey also hinted. She also added by saying; “I think [showrunner] Chris Van Dusen has got this amazing ability to take Julia Quinn’s extraordinary books and her amazing worlds that she delicately filled with excitement and sexiness. And he takes it to a whole other level,” Bailey said, when asked how much the new season will parallel the narrative in the books. “So the fact that we’re following Anthony’s pursuit for love shows that you know there’s definitely going to be some similarities.”
