The series takes place in the competitive world of Regency-era London high society Ton during the season, when debutantes are introduced to court.
Created by Chris Van Dusen, the first season of ‘Bridgerton’ revolves around the romance and marriage between Bridgerton’s eldest daughter, Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings (Rege Jean-Page).
According to Deadline, the second season follows Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), the eldest sibling Bridgerton and Viscount, as he searches for a suitable wife.
