‘Bridgerton’ Season 2: Here’s your first look at new lead couple Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley (Photo)

The production of the second season of the Shonda Rhimes romance has finally begun As all fans of “Bridgerton” know – whether they liked it or not at first – the series passes from Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon (Reg- Jean Page) to a new principal couple: Daphne’s older brother, Anthony Bridgerton (played by Jonathan Bailey), and her sweetheart, Kate Sharma (“Sex Education” alum Simone Ashley). And now we finally get our first glimpse of the new romantic couple in costume, thanks to a few photos taken on the set of the second season of the Netflix series produced by Shonda Rhimes, which recently started production. In the photo on set, which you can see here, Bailey and Ashley are in full Regency-era costume like their “Bridgerton” counterparts. At first glance, in this scene, Anthony and Kate are attending a horse race with other characters from “Bridgerton”, including brothers Anthony Colin (Luke Newton) and Benedict (Luke Thompson), his sister Eloise (Claudia Jessie), her mother, Lady Violet Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell) and Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh). When Netflix renewed its hit “Bridgerton,” it revealed that the second season would revolve around Anthony, just as each of Julia Quinn’s “Bridgerton” novels focused on the love life of a different Bridgerton brother. And it was recently confirmed just how much the series would change direction, as Page won’t appear in Season 2 at all. Dynevor, however, will reprise his role as Daphne and be part of the cast for the set, while her husband and their new baby will not be seen onscreen. (And the door is still open for him to return in the seasons to come.) Shortly after the announcement of Page’s release – which came just before the start of production on the second season – Netflix revealed that he had gone ahead and renewed “Bridgerton” for seasons 3 and 4 as well. So where will we go in these future seasons of “Bridgerton”? Well, the most likely stars for these seasons, based on the book series, are two other Daphne brothers: Benedict Bridgerton (Thompson) for season 3 (based on the book “An Offer from a Gentleman”) and Colin Bridgerton (Newton) for Season 4 (based on “Romancing Mister Bridgerton”). So if “Bridgerton” gets an eight-season run, the likely scenario is that it would go on to cover the love lives of Bridgerton’s four youngest siblings in sequence: Eloise (Claudia Jessie), Francesca (Ruby Stokes ), Gregory (Will Tilston) and Hyacinth (Florence Hunt).
