At the Bridgeton Season two World Premiere in London’s Tate Modern this week, there were many highlights to take in. Not least of all, the Bridgerton inspired fashion show, venue decorations, and of course, interviews with key cast and creators. 

The first season focused on the fourth Bridgerton child, Daphne Bridgerton, and her love story with the Duke of Hastings. 

The main focus of season two is the eldest Bridgerton child, Viscount Anthony Bridgerton. Specifically his entrance into the marriage market and the fun dynamic between the Viscount and the older Sharma sister, Kate (Simone Ashley).

Having seen episode one of season two, I’m almost certain that the undeniable chemistry and fun dialogue between Anthony and Kate will be the main highlight.

No doubt the costumes, music, romance and humour will hold my attention. But, Anthony and Kate’s exchanges did take me back to Casino Royale (2006), specifically James Bond and Vesper Lynd’s conversation on the Eurostar. 

Let’s hope that the episodes that follow are only more and more engaging come Friday, March 25th, 2022. 

Are you looking forward to this promising new season? I know I’m ready to be pleasantly surprised.

Bridgerton Season 2 Release Date: 25th March 2022, Netflix

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  Bridgerton (2020).


Created by Chris Van Dusen; Bridgerton is a new Netflix series set in Regency era England. A tale of wealth, lust, and betrayal as seen through the eyes of the powerful Bridgerton family.

Produced by Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder production company, Shonda Rhymes’s Shondaland, Bridgerton stars Phoebe Dynevor, Regé-Jean Page, Julie Andrews, Jonathan Bailey

I’d just got in from a much needed run, did the required warm down and was about to head towards the shower when a thought came to me: ‘Let me, let me just check what new trailers have been released.’.

The colours, the music, characters, costume and trailer edit all had me paying close attention trying to understand what this could be. It wasn’t until I saw ‘Shondaland’ that a very high pitched, gleeful sound escaped my lips, while I simultaneously brought my hands together clapping rapidly as the broadest smile took over my face.

In case it wasn’t clear, I’m super excited for Bridgerton for all the reasons above, but especially because it comes from Shondaland, a company that’s blessed so many fans with the likes of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder.

I’d been patiently waiting for the first show that would result from the very lucrative Rhymes/ Shodaland and Netflix deal. Finally!

Adjoa Andoh, Ruby Barker, Jason Barnett, Sabrina Bartlett, Joanna Bobin, Harriet Cains, Bessie Carter, Nicola Coughlan, Kathryn Drysdale, and Golda Rosheuvel also star.

Starring Sean Bean and Adam Greaves-Neale, The Young Messiah is the tale of Jesus as a boy…

I’ve certainly never watched a movie that covers Jesus as a 7 year-old boy. As intriguing as the  director, Cyrus Nowrasteh’s trailer looks, will the film be a good? You can find out at Easter 2016.

Release Date (s): March 11th 2016 (US)

Happy The Young Messiah 🙂
