The Bridgerton cast says goodbye to 2020 in a funny year-end image. The new Netflix series premiered on Christmas Day to much fanfare. Bridgerton is created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Grey’s Anatomy mastermind Shonda Rhimes. In 2017, Rhimes signed a multi-year development deal with the streamer. Bridgerton is one of several projects she is working on at Netflix. However, unlike past shows Rhimes has been known for, Bridgerton is a period drama. It’s based on Julia Quinn’s well-known novels and follows the title Bridgertons, as well as another family, the Featheringtons. The series is set in London at the time when debutantes are presented.
Upon its release, Bridgerton received largely positive reviews, with many praising its potent combination of high society and soapy drama. However, the show has also encountered controversy. Some have pointed out the toxic aspects of the relationship between the oldest Bridgerton daughter, Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor), and Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page). Earlier this week, Bridgerton trended on Twitter for that reason, which may not have been the sort of publicity Netflix was hoping for. Still, many viewers have already finished watching season 1 and are eager for more. Bridgerton hasn’t received an official renewal yet, but production on season 2 is reportedly set to begin in March 2021. This suggests Netflix will make an announcement about the show returning in the near future.
Netflix shared the funny image of the Bridgerton cast this week with the appropriate caption, “Saying goodbye to 2020, but make it 1813.” Check out the photo below:
The Bridgerton cast manages to convey the general public’s feelings going into 2021. The coronavirus and subsequent lockdowns have made the year feel very long and quite short at the same time. This week and even before many have taken to social media to express their enthusiasm for 2021, hoping it proves better than this year. Luckily, those following COVID-19 guidelines and staying home as much as possible have had shows like Bridgerton to distract them throughout the year. The new series is about as far removed from the current situation as a show can be, providing a necessary dose of escapism.
As the Bridgerton cast bids farewell to 2020, hopefully they’ll hear news about a season 2 renewal soon. Considering the show’s buzzy debut, it seems likely a new order from Netflix is imminent. It would reassure viewers to know more episodes are on the way. Until then, they can continue to enjoy entertaining behind-the-scenes content from Bridgerton‘s witty cast.
