Just look at all the hot and bothered shenanigans in this Season 2 trailer!

So loosen up your corsets: Here are all the things that we’re most stoked about for Season 2 of Bridgerton!

1.

The plot will focus on Anthony, played by Jonathan Bailey, who will now fully accept the responsibility of being the head of the Bridgerton family.

Frankly, Season 1 Anthony’s a bit of a pill to his family, especially to Daphne. But the poor guy also had his heart broken last minute by opera singer Siena Rosso, so we can’t fault him for wanting to turn over a new leaf by the end of the last installation. Let’s see how it all plays out in Season 2 when he tries to find the perfect spouse.

2.

Anthony has a new love interest: Kate Sharma.

From what we know of the plot so far, the curmudgeonly viscount’s new love interest is Kate Sharma. The Sharma family has come to London from Bombay, and Anthony has his eyes set on Edwina. The rub is, Edwina’s protective sister Kate will do whatever she can to stop them from marrying because she finds him a bit of a rake. But, of course, Anthony and Kate catch feelings for each other soon enough.

The twist is that Anthony’s also drawn to Kate’s sister Edwina, so there’s going to be a whole love triangle that unfolds.

“You can understand why he’s drawn to both,” Bailey told Entertainment Weekly. “And they’re both drawn to him in turn. It’s an interesting love triangle; it’s dangerous when it’s siblings. It’s bestial between them in a way Season 1 wasn’t. They’re all animals with each other.”

5.

We’re also stoked for the whole concept of Kate Sharma, who, according to Netflixis a “smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools.”

She’ll be played by Simone Ashley, who’s already well-loved from her role as Olivia on Sex Education.

Tea Bridgerton cinematic universe is expanding with new characters.

In addition to Sharma, we’ll also be seeing four new characters: Charithra Chandran as Kate’s sister Edwina, Shelley Conn as Kate’s mother Mary, Calam Lynch as a printer’s assistant named Theo, and Rupert Young as a new member of the ton named Jack .

7.

The late Lord Bridgerton is also going to be making an appearance.

He’ll be played by Charmed star Rupert Evans, who will likely appear in flashbacks. In the books, Edmund Bridgerton had a close rapport with his son Anthony and died from a bee sting when he was 38, leaving Anthony to be the head of the house.

8.

And if you’re tuning into Bridgerton for the sexy times, there’s going to be sexual tension between Anthony and Kate. Obviously.

“There’s always been a familiarity deep down with what Kate wants,” Ashley told Entertainment Weekly. “That’s what I love about shows like Bridgerton and Sex Education: They might be touching on slightly taboo topics, but these characters know what they want.”

10.

No royal shade intended, but we’re ready to see a new romance and a new side of Daphne!

11.

Regé-Jean Page officially exited the show and is no longer part of the cast (BRB crying), but there’s a sliver of a chance that he could make an appearance. Like a very tiny sliver.

When produced about a Season 2 cameo or guest appearance in a British GQ interview with Stuart McGurk in September 2021, Page is somewhat cagey. At first, he told the McGurk, “You know I couldn’t tell you!” But then Page followed up by asking, “Isn’t there something wonderful about being surprised by what you weren’t suspecting?” That’s not a no, right? All of this is purely speculation, but we know that Daphne will mention Simon in some capacity.

12.

We should be getting more of the tea on Lady Whistledown, whose identity was revealed during the end of Season 1.

13.

There’s a corgi!

How can we not be excited over a corgi? Kate and her sister Edwina can be seen in set photos with this cute pupper, who’s Kate’s dog Newton. In The Viscount Who Loved Me, Newton actually has a pretty significant role—Kate gets a feel for people based on how Newton reacts to them. Anthony Bridgerton better have some Milk-Bones on hand.

Obviously, Season 2 can’t come soon enough. Remember to clear your schedule, because like Ali Wong said in her Netflix special Don Wong:
