It's been over a year since Bridgerton debuted on Netflix, but on March 25, the streaming service will finally release season two of the regency era romantic drama! The cast and crew celebrated the premiere with a bash in California, where just like Lady Whistledown, they were eager to spill the tea.
To start, Charitha Chandran — who plays one of the women vying for Anthony Bridgerton's (Jonathan Bailey) heart — revealed to Entertainment Tonight that their old-fashioned costumes have some every high-profile ties.
"Kim Kardashian's [corset makers], they trained all of the people that made ours. And they actually made season 1 cast's corset, so they're very special corsets," she shared. "And they're perfectly made for us, so in many ways it does feel like second skin."
The Skims founder is a known fan of the series — she said that Regé-Jean Page's decision to depart the series left her "crying" — so reporters had to ask the cast how they'd feel if the reality star ever made a cameo.
"It would be fun to see Kim on set," Kathryn Drysdale responded. "Maybe she could come and work for [my character, dressmaker] Madame Delacroix."
Golda Rosheuvel, who plays Queen Charlotte, isn't too fond of her costume since she has to wear a humongous, heavy wig. However, "they actually made me a neck brace," she noted. "So when things are getting a little bit heavy, I can just put my neck in [and relax]."
The new season of the hit show focuses on a love triangle with Anthony Bridgerton at the center, and though Bailey knows that people wanted to see more of the relationship between Duke Hastings (the aforementioned Paget) and Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), he thinks his character has the "greatest love story."
Aside from romance, there will be plenty of more drama as well, teased Nicola Coughlan, the actress who plays Penelope Featherington.
"There's the fun of a second season that you don't have to do the exposition in order to be like,'This is the world of Bridgerton.' People get what Bridgerton is now, and it's become this phenomena, which is bonkers," she explained. "But yeah, people know what they're heading into, but they are not ready."
To sum it up, the star labeled this season's plots as "extremely dramatic" and "very epic."
