Bridgerton’s Nicola Coughlan Says Season 2 Will Be a “Whole Lot Spicier”
Sarah • September 16th, 2021 0 comments

Fans are already waiting for Bridgerton’s much-anticipated second season (the show has already been renewed through four, thankfully) and star Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, told Entertainment Tonight that viewers looking for the steam and sizzle of season 1 won’t be disappointed. As rumors coming from the set make headlines (will or won’t Regé-Jean Page make a cameo after his very dramatic departure?), Coughlan promises that the new season will be “spicy” and that fans can expect much, much more from Penelope.

“It’s got a whole lot spicier I will say,” Coughlan said of her character’s sophomore season arc. “You definitely see more sides to her. We find out at the end of season 1 [that she’s Lady Whistledown], that is there, but we don’t get to explore it. But the world cracks open. I feel like the Bridgerton world has grown and you’re going to see a lot more sides to her. She’s a sassy chick.”

Bridgerton is up for a slew of awards (12 total) at this weekend’s Emmy Awards, but unfortunately, Coughlan won’t be in attendance — the show is in production right now. The show has already won a trophy, however, and Coughlan was happy to celebrate the award for Outstanding Period and/or Character Hairstyling.

“It was amazing! It was so exciting,” Coughlan said. “It’s the biggest awards in television so to be recognized by them is phenomenal. We were all super excited. We [are] in the middle of filming season 2 right now, so the new season 2 group chat was going off. It’s called ‘Bridger-2,’ which I picked that name and felt very proud. I felt like, ‘That’s so smart!'”

Coughlan knows that people can’t wait for more of Bridgerton and is happy to be a part of something that makes so many people happy. She went on to say that the whole cast is feeling great about how season 2 is coming along — and doesn’t feel that much pressure to live up to the source material, The Viscount Who Loved Me. Netflix’s show is based on Julia Quinn’s series and the second book focuses on Anthony.

“It’s such an exciting thing when you do a show that anyone watches and connects to. But the level at which people connected to Bridgerton and the scale is really mind-blowing. I think we really went in more relaxed, which I know maybe some people wouldn’t,” Coughlan said. “I think we felt so much love from the fans of the show and support. Also, the book which this season is based on is like the big fan favorite.”

Jonathan Bailey, the actor that plays Anthony, also said that the show’s second season would be “sexier” than ever. Coughlan agreed, saying, “The chemistry is quite major, I can say that. I mean, Penelope not as much … There is a book dedicated to Penelope so it will get there. Currently she’s still a wallflower. She’s a working lady. She’s an independent woman in Regency London, so she’s doing a lot.”
