Bridgerton season 2

The recently released season 2 of Bridgerton is already shattering records. The show has garnered the highest viewing time for any English-language series on Netflix in three days since its release and is currently at the second-highest spot in the list of most matched shows in the first three days irrespective of the language.

This season is based on the second book from the series, The Viscount Who Loved Me, and focuses on the story of the eldest child of the Bridgerton family — Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) and his search for love. The story revolves around the relationship of Anthony, his fiancée Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran) and her very protective elder sister Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley), who eventually gets a little too close to the Viscount.

The Regency-era show, whose second season released on 25 March 2022, has made a strong spot for itself in the top 10 list of 92 out of the 93 countries on Netflix. Japan was the only country where the second season did not find a lot of followers.
