“Bridgerton” has again set a record. The second season drew even more viewers to the screens than the first.

The Netflix hit “Bridgerton” has set another record. The second season is now officially the most popular English-language series in the streaming company’s history. The sequel reached 627.11 million viewing hours after the first 28 days, as reported by the US industry portal “Deadline”. With that, the first season of “Bridgerton” has been dethroned.

The original version, which launched in December 2020, racked up 625.49 million viewing hours in its first four weeks. This makes “Bridgerton” the first series ever to take both first and second place on the list of the streaming platform’s most popular series.

A series is even more successful than “Bridgerton”

The Netflix series, set in Regency-era London, ranked according to Forbes magazine in the top ten in 88 countries through April 17. Even if these numbers sound impressive, “Bridgerton” still lags behind the South Korean production “Squid Game” in terms of viewership. The drama series holds the overall record with 1.65 billion viewing hours within the first 28 days.

Since March 25, 2022, fans can call up the second season of “Bridgerton”. Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley, 27), her sister Edwina (Charithra Chandran, 25) and Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey, 33) are the focus of the new episodes. But that’s not the end of the story: Seasons three and four are already a done deal. However, it is not yet known what the new episodes will be about.

The only thing that is certain is that Simone Ashley will return as Kate Sharma and Jonathan Bailey as Anthony Bridgerton in season three. Ashley confirmed that End of March “Deadline”.
