Bridgerton is based on the popular books of the same name
The globally popular series, Bridgerton, that drew comments both adoring and shameless for the show’s Zimbabwean born star Rege-Jean Page, has been renewed for a second season at Netflix.
The international streamer announced the news on Thursday. The Shondaland series is based on the book written by Julia Quinn and follows the Bridgerton family’s siblings as they try to navigate the Regency era marriage market and societal expectation.
The show produced by Shonda Rhimes’ production company Shondaland TV will resume production in late 2021.
