The show is based on the popular “Bridgerton” book series, written by Julia Quinn, that revolves around two families during an annual period where elite families would host formal events to introduce their children to society and find them a suitable marriage.

Netflix says it’ll begin production of season two this spring.

Some viewers will be happy to hear Lord Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan Bailey, will dominate the next season.
