Thankfully, Netflix’s adaptation of the sultry series didn’t go that far, though the Duke and Lady Bridgerton’s uneasy power dynamics still sparked debates over Christmas.
The series showrunner maintained the writers were conscious of the potential controversy, and will hopefully tread carefully if Bridgerton returns for a second season.
Finally, he added: “It’s a part of her journey. And we did discuss it a lot as far as how to approach it and how to handle it.”
There is still no word from Netflix on season two, but Bridgerton’s renewal seems to be a foregone conclusion after it became a runaway hit at the end of last year.
Bridgerton is available to stream on Netflix.
