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 just been given another look at season two.

Today, the streaming service released a series of photographs teasing what some of the beloved characters in the ton will be up to this season.

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

Driven by his duty to uphold the family name, Anthony's search for a debutante who meets his impossible standards seems ill-fated until Kate (Simone Ashley) and her younger sister Edwina (Charithra Chandran) Sharma arrive from India.

When Anthony begins to court Edwina, Kate discovers the true nature of his intentions — a true love match is not high on his priority list — and decides to do everything in her power to stop the union.

But in doing so, Kate and Anthony's verbal sparring matches only bring them closer together, complicating matters on both sides.

Across Grosvenor Square, the Featheringtons must welcome the newest heir to their estate while Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) continues to navigate the ton whilst keeping her deepest secret from the people closest to her.

Bridgerton returns for a second season on March 25, 2022.

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.
