Ever since the season one final credits rolled, Bridgerton fans have had their eyes peeled for any news on the upcoming second instalment of the period drama.
And now, viewer's prayers have been answered, courtesy of Netflix and the first official teaser trailer that they dropped overnight.
Sharing the clip to Twitter, the streaming service released the sneak peek at their three-hour-long virtual event, called TUDUM.
Amongst clips from their other offerings, one shared was that from Bridgerton's second season, that sees the first inklings of Kate Sharma (Sex Education's Simone Ashley) and Viscount Anthony's romance. The one-minute clip shows Anthony finding Kate outside of a party, where he tries to charm the corset off her. However, Sharma's intelligence allows her to see his true intentions, and their bickering teases the audience with an enemies-turned-lovers plot line.
And if that weren't enough, the streaming giant has also confirmed that the second season of Bridgerton will be hitting our small screens in 2022.
“Dear readers, this author is most pleased to bring you a first glimpse into the upcoming social season, and even more delighted to introduce you to Miss Kate Sharma,” the Bridgerton Twitter account tweeted.
A few months ago, the show's creator Chris Van Dusen revealed to E! that despite Regé-Jean Page's exit from the show, fans will be just as entertained and enamoured by Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey) and Kate's romance, which is apparently just as intense as Simon and Daphne's relationship from season one.
"I can tell you I just got into the editing bay on the first couple episodes in the second season, and I don't think people are going to be ready," Van Dusen teased. "I think, honestly, it's everything I think audiences loved so much about the first season, but just more. I think we're going to be back with an even greater escape to 19th century Regency London", adding that their chemistry is "magnetic".
"You cannot take your eyes off of them when they're together on screen. I can't wait for audiences to see that, or really, to feel that. I'm really excited."
In the meantime, feel free to practice your 19th Century vernacular with a rewatch of Bridgerton season one on Netflix here.
