Filming for Bridgerton season 2 officially wrapped over the weekend just ended.
Creator and showrunner Chris Van Dusen posted a photo in which we see him hugging the protagonists Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley .

The tweet reads:
End of shooting for season two! I am so proud of these cast and crew, who have given their all every single day in this difficult year. And these two in the picture with me. Words are not enough. Coming in 2022.
We had reported the news of the conclusion of filming of Bridgerton 2 at the end of October, but in that case, evidently, it was only valid for Nicola Coughlan , interpreter of Penelope Featherington. Coughlan also revealed that cast and crew have already seen the season 2 premiere.
Bridgerton’s second season
The series will continue to adapt Julia Quinn’s books . The second is called The Viscount Who Loved Me , and focuses on the eldest of the Bridgerton brothers , Anthony ( Jonathan Bailey ), and his search for a wife. Simone Ashley will play Kate Sharma (Sheffield in the novels), Anthony’s romantic interest . Charithra Chandran ( Alex Rider ) will play Edwina , Kate’s younger sister , who first catches Anthony’s attention .
Rupert Young (Merlin, The Secret Garden ) will lend his face to Jack , a character created especially for the series. He is linked to one of the most prestigious families in the world, and also to an unspecified mystery.
Recall that Regé-Jean Page , the face of Simon Basset , will not return in the second season.
As we know, the Bridgerton saga will be with us for a long time. A second season is in the works and the third and fourth have already been confirmed . But that is not all.
A spin-off about Queen Charlotte is on the way
In fact, the next production of a spin-off has also been announced, focusing on the past of Queen Charlotte , played by Golda Rosheuvel .
The limited series will be written and produced by Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Tom Verica , and it has been confirmed that characters such as Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury will return to the project.
