Ashley will play Anthony’s romantic interest. Newly arrived in London, Kate is a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools — Anthony Bridgerton very much included. Chandran will play her younger sister, Edwina, who first catches the Viscount’s attention. Edwina has been taught by her older sister Kate to be the perfect debutante. She’s kind-natured and endlessly endearing. But while she may be young and naive, she also knows what she wants: a true love match.
Conn will play Mary Sharma, an Earl’s daughter whose marriage to a tradesman once embroiled her family in scandal. Lady Mary has now returned to London with her own daughters and is forced to endure the scrutiny of the ton yet again. Lynch will play Theo Sharpe. Theo is a hardworking printer’s assistant. But he’s not just a working class man, he’s also an intellectual who fights for the rights of all.
Production on the Season 2 begins in the UK in early April. Next season, based on the second book of Quinn’s Bridgerton series, The Viscount Who Loved Me, will focus on a suitable marriage for the eldest Bridgerton sibling, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey).
