Netflix’s steamy period romance Bridgerton wowed viewers with its lavish first season and, of course, a follow-up is already in the works. With enough drama to fill more than its short eight-episode run, the show has left fans with much to speculate about what will happen to the characters in season two. But one of the stars has already revealed what her character will be going through in the upcoming episodes.
One of the fans favourites amongst the Bridgerton children, Claudia Jessie’s Eloise was mostly focused on unmasking the elusive Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) while also dreading her upcoming introduction into society.
However, with the season finale revealing to the audience Whistledown’s identity as none other than Eloise’s best friend Penelope Featherington (played by Nicola Coughlan), there is bound to be some tension between the two when Eloise finds out.
Jessie backed up that theory by saying in a recent interview about her character: “She is going to be p****d!”
“I just can’t imagine what that is going to be like,” she added.
“That’s such a shock to a friendship,” continued the actress.
“You have this woman, this character, this mysterious scribbler that Eloise is basically a bit in love with, and kinda wants to be her best mate—has been lying to her, writing about her family, and causing scandals.”
“To me, that’s the most compelling thing in the world,” she said to Harper’s Bazaar.
This will definitely be an on-going plot for fans to look-out for as the main characters for season two will likely change.
While season two only just started production, the book series gives fans plenty to go off when speculating about what is to come.
Each instalment focuses on a different Bridgerton sibling in their attempt to find love, season one and book one being Daphne’s (Phoebe Dynevor) go.
So while in season two there might be less of Daphne and Simon (Regé-Jean Page), there is sure going to be a lot more Anthony (Jonathan Bailey).
Simone Ashley was also recently announced to be joining the cast in the upcoming season, portraying Anthony’s love interest, Kate Sharma, the half-sister of Edwina Sheffield, who according to Netflix is “a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools — Anthony Bridgerton very much included.”

Speaking about what these changes mean for her character, Jessie said: “Firstly, I’d like to see her debut [ball], because she’s going to do it and she’s going to shake things up and basically take the p**s out of it.”
“I’m excited for that. But I would really love to see Eloise just really own every space she’s in,” she added.
“I think about Eloise all the time. I think about how much fun she would have being exposed to sort of owning her life.”
“She had this vision that her sister was the perfect debutante, and then Eloise comes sort of like crashing through with her own personality,” added the actress.
“She is given a little bit more freedom to be herself, with [Daphne] being in a high-status relationship, and it gives Eloise a bit more room to have her own space,” said Jessie.
Meanwhile, Dynevor recently confessed that she wouldn’t want to live the same life that her Dutchess character lives: “I’m excited for that. But I would really love to see Eloise just really own every space she’s in.”
“Daphne is very much confined to finding a husband,” she said, adding: “I mean, I wouldn’t want to be her,” she said to L’Officiel.
However she confessed some aspects of being a woman in the Regency Era are quite endearing: “If a man fancied you he’d come around the next day and bring you a big bouquet of flowers. There’s quite a romantic notion to that,” said the actress.
Bridgerton is available to watch on Netflix.
