Fans of Bridgerton are set to be thrilled as season two filming has kicked off. 

On Tuesday, actors including Jessica Madsen, Melissa Advani and Priya Kansara donned their very best period ensembles to kick off filming at the historic Old Naval College at the University Of Greenwich in south London.

The show’s creator Chris Van Dusen promised viewers a love story ‘as sweeping and moving and as beautiful as viewers have come to expect’ for the upcoming season. 

At last! Filming for the second series of Bridgerton finally kicked off on Wednesday, as some of the period drama’s cast were spotting donning period attire to record scenes in Greenwich, south London

Getting into character for the scenes, Jessica donned an elegant pink floral dress and a matching headpiece as part of her 19th Century inspired look for filming.

The actress, who plays Cressida Cowpe in the show, could be seen in the midst of a conversation with her co-stars who were both dressed in matching lime green and pink dresses. 

During the show’s first series, Cressida proved to be an ill-mannered debutante who ended up at loggerheads with the series’ titular character Daphne in their battle for suitors.

The first season focused on the romance between Daphne Bridgerton, portayed by Phoebe Dynevor, and Simon, Duke of Hastings, the role which Rege-Jean Page bade farewell to last month – to the dismay of his many fans.

Bridgerton has been renewed for a second, third and fourth season with Netflix, and the next season is based on Julia Quinn’s second Bridgerton novel The Viscount Who Loved Me.

The book sees Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) go on the hunt for a suitable bride when he meets Kate and Edwina Sheffield, renamed Sharma for the show.

While he tries to pursue Edwina he finds himself becoming attracted to Kate instead, despite the fact they are often at odds with each other. 

Simone Ashley was announced to be playing Kate, and her character’s surname has been altered to reflect Simone’s South-Asian background.

The show has been praised for mixing up tired casting, and featuring BAME cast members in prominent societal roles such as Regé-Jean as the Duke of Hastings, Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte, and Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury.

Fans were left shocked recently when breakout star Page, 31, revealed he wouldn’t be reprising his role as the Duke of Hastings in the groundbreaking period drama.
