Ever since Netflix's swoon-worthy series Bridgerton hit our screens, fans have been eager to watch more of the high-society scandals centred around the family.

And following the excitement the incredibly popular series - adapted from Julia Quinn's novels - has officially been renewed for a second, third and fourth season, we've finally got our release date for season two!

And there isn't too much longer to wait ... with the premiere date set for March 25 this year.

Taking to social media, season two leads Jonathan Bailey (who stars as Anthony) and Simone Ashley (who plays Kate) revealed the news, alongside Adjoa Andoh, Golda Rosheuvel, Claudia Jessie, Charithra Chandran and Luke Newton.

The stars receive a surprise letter from Lady Whistledown and the camera captures the moment they read the premiere date.

Bailey says: "Is that Whistledown? What's she got to say today? The cheeky little mistress. It's customary for a first anniversary to gift paper, dear readers."

As we've previously learned, the upcoming season of Bridgerton will focus on Anthony as he embarks on his quest for true love, with the new episodes following closely to the second book, The Viscount Who Loved Me.

Bridgerton's first season was a runaway hit for Netflix, having been watched by an estimated 63 million households across the globe.

A huge part of the allure of the first season was the character of Simon Basset, played by Regé-Jean Page.

His steamy love affair with Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor, had viewers swooning and many were disappointed to discover that the character of Simon would not be returning.
