Will Bridgerton Get a Season 2? All the Burning Questions We Need Answered

  Will Bridgerton Get a Season 2? All the Burning Questions We Need Answered Shonda Rhimes’ new period piece on Netflix leaves a lot to be desired. The historical romance’s final episode left a lot of story still on the table. So, is Bridgerton season 2 happening? Netflix has yet to confirm a second go-round; however, Production Weekly, reports that filming for a project titled “Bridgerton 02” will begin filming in Uxbridge, England in March 2021, suggesting a follow-up season is in the works.

Bridgerton's scandal, steamy love-story plot lines and Regency costuming have captivated 82 million households (and counting!) as the Netflix show continues to break streaming records across the globe. But breakout star Nicola Coughlan, who portrays Penelope Featherington on the megahit series, says mastering the art of wearing 19th century high society fashion was more challenging than she had anticipated.

Between the waist-cinching corset, dramatic dresses and high heels, Coughlan, 34, admitted her balance was a bit off-kilter the first few days of filming, which resulted in a little accident on set involving one of her costars.

"So it was my first day on set and it is quite terrifying getting a big Shondaland Netflix job. You think, I just don't want to screw this up," the actress said during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

"So they said to me, 'You're very tiny. Let's put you in heels.' And I thought yeah, I will do anything you want me to do. Yes," Coughlan continued. "It became evident pretty quickly that with the corset and the heels, my balance was not so amazing."

As she walked during a scene, Coughlan struggled to keep her balance and ended up colliding into one of her costars. "So I was walking along and I fell three times and the third time I was holding a parasol which in the wrong hand is a deadly weapon. I fell forward and stabbed Claudia Jessie, who plays Eloise Bridgerton, in the hand and she just started bleeding," she said. "But she's still my friend! But unfortunately there was a stabbing on the first day and I was guilty. It was not good."
