  Netflix hasn't renewed 'Bridgerton' yet, but here's what we know about the potential second season so far If "Bridgerton" follows the order of Julia Quinn's books, the eldest of the siblings, Anthony Bridgerton, will likely be the star of season two.Because between Penelope Featherington's sly reveal as Lady Whistledown, London's shady gossip columnist, and Portia Featherington's ominous reaction to the man inheriting her late husband's estate, there are plenty of strings left untied at the end of season one.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association  (HFPA) announced the nominees for the 78th annual Golden Globes on Wednesday morning, and "Bridgerton" wasn't on the list.

The eight-part series is showrunner Chris Van Dusen's adaptation of Julia Quinn's best-selling romance novels. It invites viewers into a racially inclusive reimagination of London's early 19th-century high-society marriage market.

Bridgerton's Prince Friedrich Look Familiar? Actor Freddie Stroma Also Starred in Harry Potter

  Bridgerton's Prince Friedrich Look Familiar? Actor Freddie Stroma Also Starred in Harry Potter Fans on Twitter are freaking out as they make the connection Stroma, 34, portrayed the arrogant Cormac McLaggen in the sixth film of the franchise, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and also stars as Prince Friedrich of Prussia on Bridgerton. "HOLY S--- THAT PRINCE DUDE FROM BRIDGERTON WAS IN HARRY POTTER HOW DID NEITHER ME OR MY MOM PICK THAT OUT," one fan tweeted. Added another, "Not me just now realizing that the guy that played the prince on Bridgerton also played Cormac McLaggen on Harry Potter." The British actor has also portrayed Adam Cromwell on Lifetime's UnREAL, H.G.

Many expected the hit Netflix show to receive a nod at the Golden Globes, especially since "Bridgerton" recently became the streaming giant's biggest series debut of all time.

The Shonda Rhimes-produced Regency drama also received high marks from critics, earning an 89% on Rotten Tomatoes.

But while other Netflix original series like "Queen's Gambit," "The Crown," and "Ozark" secured nominations, "Bridgerton" was completely shut out.

Fans were both confused and disappointed at the HFPA's lack of recognition for the show, which was renewed for a second season less than a month after its Christmas Day premiere.

Some scoffed at the fact that "Emily in Paris," a Netflix series that critics panned for its unrealistic portrayal of Paris and French culture, scored two nominations while "Bridgerton" received zero.

What a second season of Bridgerton might look like

  What a second season of Bridgerton might look like We break down what the potential plot of a second season of 'Bridgerton' might look like — with input from showrunner Chris Van Dusen Bridgerton viewers who are already familiar with the novels might have been dismayed to see Anthony deeply in love with someone other than Kate in season 1 — namely, opera singer Siena Rosso (Sabrina Bartlett). The unhappy ending to that tryst seems likely to complicate Anthony's story on screen.

"Bridgerton" isn't the only TV show that people felt the HFPA snubbed this year.

They also thought that shows like HBO's "I May Destroy You," Netflix's "Never Have I Ever," and NBC's "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist" deserved nominations.

The 78th annual Golden Globes will air on NBC on Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
