Fellow members of the ton – our time has come! Netflix and Shondaland has finally dropped the first full trailer for the upcoming second season of Bridgerton. Please take a moment to breathe it all in. Good? Let’s dive in! The second season closely follows the events of Julia Quinn‘s second novel, The Viscount Who Loved Me and will focus on the first song, Viscount Anthony Bridgeton (Jonathan Bailey), and his quest to find the perfect wife. And we know that he has quite the list of requirements.

The Bridgerton trailer features the return of Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews), who has returned for the season to quietly watch from the shadows. But she knows that people are questioning who she is and where she gets her information. But she isn’t about to let them in on her secret. Nope. She is honing her skills and sharpening her knives. As the trailer comes to a close, we watch as Lady Whistledown slips from her traditional Andrews narration to being simply Penelope (Nicola Coughlan). And I feel that she will be a force to be reckoned with this season.

The trailer is full of “blink and you might miss it” moments that tell multiple stories. Most notably (and the center of this season) is about Anthony Bridgerton. We get prolonged eye contact between him and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley) as he tries to court her sister Edwina (Charithra Chandran). Talk about the fire in the air. We also see Eloise (Claudia Jessie) preparing for her social season and enjoying the sites with Benedict (Luke Thompson) and Colin (Luke Newton). We even get a glimpse at a spicy scene in which Daphne (Pheobe Dynevor) walks in on the poor girl.

And finally, just before the Penelope reveal, we get two shots of a young Anthony and his father, Edmund Bridgerton (Rupert Evans). I love the drama of Bridgerton, but it was this moment that has had me on the edge of my seat. I read the novels during the beginning of the pandemic and fell in love with this family. But, I was always heartbroken when it came to them losing their father. And Anthony’s story deals with his loss in a big way. So, seeing him on screen and knowing that we are going to get some heartwrenching moments has me both excited and clipping coupons for tissues.

Bridgerton season two waltzes its way onto Netflix starting March 25, 2022. If you haven’t taken the time to watch season one – do it! You can also catch up with our recaps!
