WATCH: Bridgerton season two is in the works!

Season two will focus on the love story of Anthony Bridgerton, Daphne's older brother and the Duke of Hastings' best friend. In the books (and warning, spoiler ahead for those who don't want to know!), Anthony is afraid of bees as a bee sting killed his father at an early age, and has convinced him that he too will die young.

Season two will focus on Anthony

Fans have already pointed out that there are many hints to the bee storyline in season two, including a bee on the Bridgerton family door knocker and Anthony wearing a bee-patterned vest. Speaking about the bee theme, Chris previously tweeted: "This bumblebee is a very important symbol & thematic element for us. Yes, it’s cute but it’s also backstory, history, HIERARCHY. Queens & drones. (There’s an essay in here somewhere.)"
