It was reported that Kate is “smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools — Anthony Bridgerton very much included.” Shondaland is even taking care to bring the character and her Indian descent to life, unlike the Kate Sheffield of Quinn’s novel, and it has got desi fans thrilled. In fact, Netflix just dropped photos from season 2 hinting at newer things and it is the representation that has got Indian Twitter excited. While in one of those Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) appears to be presenting the Sharmas to proper London society who are dressed in their finest, the other one has Kate and Anthony stealing a rendezvous.

Needless to say, desi and brown excellence is being discussed with the photos which have now gone viral. See for yourself.

Meanwhile, some are still heartbroken about Page’s exit but hey, it is what it is. Earlier, the actor had told Variety, “It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end – give us a year.” “(I thought) ‘That’s interesting,’ because then it felt like a limited series. I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit and then the Bridgerton family rolls on. One of the things that is different about this [romance] genre is that the audience knows the arc completes. They come in knowing that, so you can tie people in emotional knots because they have that reassurance that we’re going to come out and we’re going to have the marriage and the baby.”

Also, if you’re not in the know, Bridgerton has already been renewed for a third and fourth season with Jess Brownell serving as the showrunner. That and a spin-off limited series that expands the franchise. While we wait for Season 2, it is hearty to know that the first is a spinoff series that will follow a young Queen Charlotte and will reportedly be written by Shonda Rhimes who is also set to executive produce.
