It’s simple to get swept up in the love, Regency fashion, and dreamy music of Netflix’s Bridgerton, however look a little closer and you’ll be rewarded with crucial season two clues. Although the program has yet to be officially restored, it appears Shonda Rhimes and showrunner Chris Van Dusen hid key spoilers that suggest what might come next– and everything ties back to a bee.
You probably noticed an emphasis on the striped bug in the last episode of season one, and it ends up that may have been a hint about the 2nd season. Considering that the show is based on Julia Quinn’s nine novels, the bee is likely a nod to her second book, The Viscount Who Loved Me In the novel, the Bridgertons’ daddy is stung by a bee and dies from an allergy, leaving Anthony as the head of the family. His role as viscount ultimately leads him to Kate Sheffield, the sis of the female he’s implied to wed.
The TV series never ever discusses when or how the Bridgertons’ father died. Rather, we meet the household when Anthony is struggling with his title and responsibilities over his brother or sisters. The bee at the end of season one recommends what we assumed all along: Anthony’s love story with Kate will be the focus of the next few episodes. We simply require Netflix to formally renew the show so we can all rest simple! Undoubtedly, Girl Whistledown would not let such chatter go to waste.
