Bridgerton season 2 release date and plot preview

Bridgerton Season 2 was released on Friday, March 25, 2022 – exactly 15 months since Season 1 launched in 2020.

While the show’s first episode explored Daphne Bridgerton’s arrival on the debutante scene and her relationship with the Duke of Hastings, the second outing is set to examine Anthony Bridgerton’s attempts to find his own wife.

Elsewhere, however, the identity of the anonymous Lady Whistledown remains a hot topic among members of the ton, as her infamous scandal sheets continue to be must-read for members of high society.


Is Lady Whistledown revealed in Bridgerton season 2?

At the end of Bridgerton’s second season, two notable characters know that Penelope is impersonating the unnamed Lady Whistledown.

The first of these characters is Madame Geneviève Delacroix, a seamstress for the ton that Eloise Bridgerton suspected was the anonymous writer for season 1.

Madame Delacroix has just learned the secret after seeing Penelope buying printing supplies at the market to use for the Whistledown letters.

But rather than reveal the secret, Madame Delacroix ends up agreeing to help Penelope spread the work of Lady Whistledown, using her shop as a front to push the infamous scandal sheets.


The second person to know Lady Whistledown’s true identity is Eloise Bridgerton, Penelope’s best friend.

As Season 2 progresses, Eloise is introduced as the writer herself, and the Queen threatens to bring down the Bridgertons unless she admits it.

Instead, Eloise doubles down on her search for the real Lady Whistledown and with the help of Theo Sharpe, who works at the printing press where the letters are produced, she learns that Madame Delacroix has helped the mysterious writer.

She doesn’t quite have all the pieces yet but finally, Eloise and Penelope get together in episode 8 at the Featherington ball and Eloise begins to notice Penelope’s attention to the other guests.

After agonizing over the identity of Lady Whistledown for two whole seasons, Eloise finally puts the pieces together and learns that her own friend was the anonymous writer all along.


What could the discovery mean for season 3?

For now only Eloise and Madame Delacroix know that Penelope is Lady Whistledown and as such Penelope thinks she can continue to impersonate the anonymous writer at the end of season 2.

However, how long this can last remains to be seen.

After learning of her friend’s deception, Eloise says she never wishes to see or speak to Penelope again.

Although initially saddened by the breakdown of her friendship, Penelope chooses to continue writing as Lady Whistledown.

But if her letters continue to threaten Eloise and the Bridgerton family, could Eloise be tempted to spill Penelope’s secret for the rest of the ton?

Hopefully that’s something we learn when Bridgerton season 3 finally arrives.


Bridgerton Season 2 is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on March 25, 2022.
