Dearest reader, did you miss Lady Whistledown? Fret not because Netflix recently released the first teaser for Bridgerton season two, and it's sure to add to your excitement.
The teaser of the upcoming season was unveiled on the occasion of Valentine's Day on the show's official Instagram account. The caption read, "Lady Whistledown's quill knows no loyalty, thus it is advised to guard one's secrets with their life. Bridgerton Season 2 returns March 25, 2022. Only on Netflix."
The mysterious author of Bridgerton's Whistledown Papers was unmasked in the first season and rises again in the season two teaser.
We don't get a lot in the one-minute-long teaser, but we get exactly what we were waiting for: Glimpses of ornate ballrooms, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) with a fresh haircut, the introduction of Kate and Edwina Sharma (Simone Ashley and Charithra Chandran), and Whistledown herself, narrating it all as Julie Andrews.
In the teaser, Lady Whistledown (a.k.a. Penelope Featherington) announces her plans to shake up London's social scene once again.
"Dearest gentle reader, did you miss me? As the members of my town questioned my identity and means, this author has been doing but one thing: honing my skills," says Lady Whistledown in the narration voiced by Julie Andrews.
"No, even better, I've been sharpening my knives ... for all of you," she adds in the teaser.
The brief clip shows how the ton prepares for the new social season. All the while, viewers get a brief introduction to the Sharma sisters as well, both of whom will find themselves in a twisted love triangle with Anthony.
Penelope is additionally seen writing as the town gossip at the teaser's end. This continues the narrative of a big reveal from the season 1 finale that Penelope is, in fact, Lady Whistledown.
The second season of the Shonda Rhimes-produced period drama is returning to Netflix on Mar. 25.
Following in the structure of the novels written by author Julia Quinn, the second installment will see the eldest Bridgerton sibling Lord Anthony
Bridgerton's (Bailey) journey to finding love, reported People magazine.
