The much anticipated season 2 of Bridgerton is finally here! Season 1 was the most-watched series on Netflix at the time of its premiere, and remains the second most-watched series by total watch time on the platform. (There might be some spoilers below if you haven’t watched it yet.)
It is based on Julia Quinn‘s novels set in the competitive world of Regency era London‘s ton during the season, when debutantes are presented at court. It is Shonda Rhimes’s first scripted Netflix series.
But the plot is less important than the, ahem, actors…

Season 2 is summed up as ‘more love, less lust’ but is it going to prove as popular?
Many say ‘yes’.
Sex scenes are great, indeed, but it’s the almost touch, the almost kiss, the longing stares that gets me every time.

The broody (never want to marry for love) lead character, Anthony Bridgerton. Is a man of many contradictions:
anthony bridgerton said “i am not a man of poetry” and then turned around and delivered “you are the bane of my existence and the object of all my desires. night and day i dream of you” all men do is lie

But he’s still seen as perfect:
anthony bridgerton is a straight man written by a woman played by a gay man and that is exactly why he can do no wrong

He had some of us questioning our own ideals:

Like, REALLY questioning our lives…
Just finished Bridgerton and I’m convinced I’ve never been in love. Flukes.

The show continued to serve us with wonderful looks from a reimagined, more diverse, history.
I LOVE how black hair is celebrated on Bridgerton, the queen of England always has these wigs that show how black hair can look REGAL. I cannot stress enough how much I LOVE THIS. pic.twitter.com/QUA90fvWu9

And many characters aside from the main love-plot shone
Eloise Bridgerton. That’s it. That’s the tweet. It’s her show.
