Is it March 25 yet?

Netflix has unveiled a new batch of photos for Bridgerton Season 2, and it's difficult knowing we still have two months before the series returns to the air.

The latest photos tease Phoebe Dynevor's return as Daphne.

It's unclear whether Daphne will be in every episode of Bridgerton Season 2, but we expect her to help her brother navigate his dating life as he attempts to find "the one."

Sex Education's Simone Ashley debuts as Kate Sharma in the new batch of episodes.

We got our first look at Bridgerton Season 2 last year in the form of a teaser, and the photos give

In early April, when Netflix and Shondaland announced that Regé-Jean Page, everyone’s favorite duke, wouldn’t be returning for the second season of “Bridgerton,” the news caused an explosion of grief on the internet. “Bridgerton,” after all, was a sensation as soon as it hit Netflix on Christmas Day 2020, and a significant number of the show’s fans had fallen in love with Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings (Page) and Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor). How could he be leaving?!?

Rhimes was surprised by the surprise, she said during an interview for Variety’s Show Woman of the Year cover story — she assumed that more people would be familiar with the structure of Julia Quinn’s “Bridgerton” romance series. “Every season we’re telling a different romance story of a different couple,” she said. “There are eight Bridgerton siblings, and as far as I’m concerned, there are eight ‘Bridgerton’ seasons.

Bridgerton Star Reveals Season 1 Originally Had Different Ending

Bridgerton Star Reveals Season 1 Originally Had Different Ending
Bridgerton has been a bonafide hit for Netflix.

It launched in December and soared to become Netflix's biggest-ever original series with almost 90 million viewers around the globe.

The first season concluded thrillingly, revealing that Nicola Coughlan's Penelope Featherington was gossip columnist Lady Whistledown.

However, it has now been revealed that the revelation was not supposed to be revealed that early and that there was initially a very different ending in mind.

Coughlan appeared alongside her co-stars during a Bridgerton panel at Netflix's Tudum event over the weekend, and well, we're surprised.

"They didn't know they were going to reveal it in season one," Coughlan dished.

"They had changed back and forward a few times, they were going to do a red herring.

"It was a reshoot in July, so they had filmed a different ending. They were going to make it seem like it was Cressida Cowper."

Bridgerton Season 2: First Trailer Teases New Love Story, Premiere Date

Bridgerton Season 2: First Trailer Teases New Love Story, Premiere Date
Netflix's biggest series ever is closing in on a comeback.

The streamer on Saturday dropped a first-look at Bridgerton Season 2, and it's everything we hoped it would be.

Simone Ashley (Sex Education) was announced as the female lead for the second season, to star opposite Jonathan Bailey (Anthony Bridgerton).

The first teaser shows Anthony meeting with Ashley's character, and the latter is less than thrilled with Anthony's comments on his future wife.

Yes, Anthony has some high demands, and yes, there's going to be a lot of sudsy drama.

It will be fun to see this new love story take place, and it looks very different from Daphne and Simon's road to love in the first season, which is very good in our book.

Charithra Chandran, Shelley Conn (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Calam Lynch, and Rupert Young (The White Queen) have also been added to the cast in

‘Bridgerton’ Season 2 First Look Introduces New Character Kate Sharma
“Bridgerton” fans may not have Regé-Jean Page to drool over, but Netflix is promising that they’ll be swept off their feet in Season 2— this time, by a romance between Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley). The “Sex Education” star and Bailey promised during a Tudum panel that, in spite of all of the arguments you’ll see on-screen between the pair, they certainly aren’t lacking in passion.

The streamer dropped an exclusive first-look today at the next chapter of the steamy, Shondaland-produced Regency-era drama based on Julia Quinn’s novels. In the clip shared on Saturday, it’s clear the two get off to a rocky start.

“He’s met someone who’s really his match,” Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington) observed during a brief panel session with Ashley, Bailey and Charithra Chandran, who joins the cast on Season 2 as Kate’s younger sister, Edwina.

It has been an honour to write it and I will be forever proud of everything it’s achieved.”

That place was (pretty obviously) Northern Ireland. The time was the early 1990s, which was toward the tail end of a 30-year-long ethno-nationalist conflict there dubbed “The Troubles.” “Derry Girls” navigates that period through
