The Bridgerton brothers are back in London! Actor Luke Newton, who stars in the Netflix romantic period drama ‘Bridgerton’, confirmed that the cast is currently shooting the second season of the popular show by revealing behind-the-scenes pictures from the sets of the series.
The actor, who stars as the youngest Bridgerton brother, posted a series of BTS photos on his Instagram handle which featured him and his costars dressed to film the period drama series in London.

The second season will be based on the sequel of Julia Quinn’s romance series, ‘The Viscount Who Loved Me’, which follows the quest of Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) to find his viscountess. Last month, People magazine confirmed that Netflix cast Simone Ashley as Kate Sharma, the eldest Bridgerton sibling’s love interest, in the upcoming season.
