Bridgerton Season 2 Introduces South Asian Representation To Regency Romance, And The Internet Is Loving It

After Bridgerton became not only the talk of the town in late 2020, but the most successful original Netflix show ever, the second season is finally here. And instead of the Regency Era series focusing on Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page’s Daphne and Duke, this new batch of episodes focuses on a new love story involving Jonathan Bailey’s Viscount Bridgerton and a member of the Sharma family. And as fans binge the series this weekend, audiences are really stoked about the great South Asian characters taking the lead this time around. 

Bridgerton Season 2 follows Ashley Simone and Charithra Chandran as the Sharma sisters, who shake up England’s social season just as Viscount Bridgerton looks for the perfect wife. The season makes for a great enemies to lovers storyline not unlike Pride and Prejudice. While watching the series, Twitter user @avantika_panda shared her thoughts on the new prominent additions to the show. In her words: 

Being a South Asian woman and a literature student it feels surreal to see Brown female characters represented in Regency era literature in mainstream media. Now that imagination has culminated into reality with a Bollywood touch. How beautiful is the representation.
