NEW YORK – Today, March 25, fans of the Netflix series Bridgerton rejoice as the long-awaited second season of the show, produced by Shonda Rhimes and based on Julia Quinn’s book series, goes live. The plot is drawn from book two, The Viscount Who Loved Me, which follows eldest son Lord Anthony Bridgerton (played by Jonathan Bailey) in his quest to find a suitable wife among the ranks of the ton, a compression of “le bon ton” — French for “the good tone” and the era’s term for the fashionable and favored. As with the first season, English Regency style will be on full display in the sumptuous early 19th-century settings.
