Netflix have released the first trailer for the second season of Bridgerton.
The upcoming season will focus on Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), and his romance with new character Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley).
In the teaser trailer, Anthony gets rejected by Kate after she overhears his “many requirements for a wife.”
Anthony says: “You take issue with my requirements?” to which Kate replies: “I take issue with any man who views women merely as chattels and breeding stock.”
“When you manage to find this paragon of virtue, whatever makes you think she will accept your suit? Are the young ladies of London to be so easily won by a pleasing smile and absolutely nothing more? … Your character is as deficient as your horsemanship. I shall bid you goodnight,” she adds.
Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington in the series, recently teased that season two would be “a lot spicier” than season one of the show.
Speaking about Anthony Bridgerton’s love story, the Irish actress told Entertainment Tonight: “When you do season 1, you don’t know if you’re gonna get a season 2, but we were like, ‘I really hope we get a chance to tell that story because people love it so much.’”
“And Kate is such a fiery character. She’s like this strong, independent woman. We really wanted to get to that and the fact that we get to tell [it] is a real privilege.”
The Galway native, who shot to fame in Derry Girls, also teased the chemistry between Anthony and Kate “is quite major” in the second season.
