Bridgerton became an instant classic when it hit our screens on Christmas Day, giving viewers a chance to escape into a Regency world of romance, plotting and drama.

The modern take on the period drama genre got the whole world talking - and streaming - becoming Netflix's biggest ever drama with 82 million households tuning in.

It's little surprise then, that the show, based on the novels by Julia Quinn, has been confirmed for a second season.

Production will begin in spring, and the new series will be centred on eldest Bridgerton sibling, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) and his quest to find a wife, mirroring Julia Quinn's second book The Viscount Who Loved Me.

Excitingly, Anthony's on-screen mum, Ruth Gemmell, who plays Lady Violet has shared some more detail about the plot of series two.

"Violet is very determined to marry her kids off and that is my main goal I think in series two. My darling son Anthony will be off on his pursuit of love and I’ll be there watching all the time," she told You magazine.

"Violet loves and adores her kids. Don’t expect her to lose her temper with them but they will be up to some of their usual tricks and have her running round in circles," she added.

Desperate for more details about the possible plotlines of Bridgerton season 2?

We recently caught up with Lady Danbury actor Adjoa Andoh to glean her thoughts, and she shared she'd like to see more of her character's relationship with Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel).

“I imagine that when Lady Danbury and Lady Hastings, Simon’s mother, were young women, that their relationship was a bit like Eloise and Penelope’s - quite fiery young women who have hopes and dreams and ambitions for their own lives. They really love each other and take care of each other and they're quite independent, so I would love to see how Lady Danbury gets on with [the Queen].

“And maybe to see Lady Danbury having a bit of a romance of her own?”

Whatever happens, we can't wait to watch.

Bridgerton season one is available to stream on Netflix.
