Bridgerton showrunner teases ‘even greater’ season two

Bridgerton’s producer and showrunner Chris Van Dusen has teased an “even greater” season two.

The first season joined Netflix on December 25 last year, and it was a huge hit with viewers.

The period drama received 12 nominations at the 2021 Emmy Awards, including Best Drama Series and Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Regé-Jean Page).

Speaking to E! News about about the moment he found out about the nominations, showrunner Chris said: “I was in the car with my husband and we had just dropped our 3-year-old off at nursery. We were driving home when I started getting texts and emails, and we pulled over.”

“I think we had a good cry for a couple minutes. I’m so excited and humbled and most of all, I’m proud of this cast and this crew and I’m just filled with tremendous gratitude, honestly.”

Teasing what to expect from the second season, he added: “I can tell you I just got into the editing bay on the first couple episodes in the second season, and I don’t think people are going to be ready.”

“I think, honestly, it’s everything I think audiences loved so much about the first season, but just more. I think we’re going to be back with an even greater escape to 19th century Regency London.”

The second season is set to follow the eldest Bridgerton brother, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) and his romance with Kate Sharma, played by newcomer Simone Ashley.

Chris described Jonathan and Simone’s chemistry as “magnetic.”

He said: “You cannot take your eyes off of them when they’re together on screen. I can’t wait for audiences to see that, or really, to feel that. I’m really excited.”

“There’s something special about the two of them, Simone and Jonathan, and I think people will really respond to them.”
