'Esteemed members of the Ton, it seems we have a rather special announcement'

Netflix confirmed on Tuesday, April 13 that period drama series Bridgerton will be returning for seasons 3 and 4. 

True to the Bridgerton tradition, Lady Whistledown announced the news through her society paper. “Bridgerton shall return for seasons three and four. This author shall have to purchase more ink,” the character quipped.

“This two-season pickup is a strong vote of confidence in our work.… Betsy and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue bringing the world of Bridgerton to a worldwide audience,” writer Shonda Rhimes said in a statement to Deadline. 

Bela Bajaria, the vice president of Netflix’ global TV, also added: “They have some exciting plans for the future, and we think audiences will continue to swoon for this show. We’re planning to be in the Bridgerton business for a long time to come.” 

On April 6, Bridgerton introduced four new cast members for season 2 following the news that Regé-Jean Page, who played Simon Basset, will not return for the show’s second season. 

Bridgerton is a romantic, cheeky series set during the Regency Period in London that follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and her family as she makes her high-society debut in the competitive marriage market. The series is based on Julia Quinn’s novel, The Duke and I.  – Rappler.com
