Status for season 5
The series is NOT cancelled. However, it has not yet been renewed or cancelled for season 5
The show narrator Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews) has announced the official approval of Bridgerton season 2. It is no surprise that the show was renewed considering it's been one of the two biggest hits on Netflix in 2021 (with Lupin). If the series follows the sequence of book by Quinn’s Bridgerton novels, it is likely that season 2 will follow the narrative of The Viscount Who Loved Me, the second novel in the series, and tell the story of the search for an appropriate marriage for Lord Anthony Bridgerton, one of the Bridgerton siblings.
Julie Andrews confirmed that "Bridgerton will return to production in the spring of 2021" and "Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season" and that she will "report any and all of his activities".
Season 2 of Bridgerton was likely to be renewed, although one of the main cast members, Phoebe Dynevor, also shared concerned about potentially re-starting production for season 2, considering the COVID concerns. She stated "I can’t imagine how it would be possible to film under these circumstances, There are so many extras and so many crew members, and it’s a very intimate show. It just baffles me how we would film it under COVID rules unless there was a vaccine beforehand".
Bridgerton features the siblings of the Bridgerton family, who are all searching for love and happiness in the high society of London. The new series has been a blockbuster hit for Netflix with over 60 million households viewing the series, and we expect a season 2 announcements to be made by Feb/March 2021.
