“I do think that I am seeing a pivot in terms of people wanting things to feel a little more aspirational and just escapist and feel good. It’s hard to know where we’ll be a couple years from now, but I think that this is going to be the trend for a while. I imagine it’s going to continue to go this blue sky, feel-good route,” shared Jinny Howe.
Well, surely celebrations are on the cards for the entire Bridgerton cast.
The show was recently announced to be revived for a Season 2. It was none other than Lady Whistledon who made the big revelation!
