Another reviewer tweeted: "I haven’t read the books, so I went into #Bridgerton S2 with 0 expectations. That said, I thought it was FANTASTIC. The acting, chemistry, story, music, costumes, humor, heart — I was enthralled. #Kathony are a ship for the ages, and Benedict is my favorite person in the world."

So what can we expect from season two? The synopsis reads: "[The series follows] Lord Anthony Bridgerton, the eldest Bridgerton sibling and Viscount, as he sets out to find a suitable wife. Driven by his duty to uphold the family name, Anthony’s search for a debutante who meets his impossible standards seems ill-fated until Kate and her younger sister Edwina Sharma arrive from India.
"When Anthony begins to court Edwina, Kate discovers the true nature of his intentions — a true love match is not high on his priority list — and decides to do everything in her power to stop the union. But in doing so, Kate and Anthony’s verbal sparring matches only bring them closer together, complicating matters on both sides."
