Ranger’s House doubles as Bridgerton House in the Netflix hit, it is based in Greenwich and the Georgian villa is stunning with its wisteria flowers and gorgeous design.

The first season focused on the romance between Daphne Bridgerton, portrayed by Phoebe, and Simon, Duke of Hastings, the role which Regé-Jean Page bade farewell to last month – to the dismay of his many fans.

Bridgerton has been renewed for a second, third and fourth season with Netflix, and the next season is based on Julia Quinn’s second Bridgerton novel The Viscount Who Loved Me.

The second season will shift the focus to Daphne’s brother Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), who will go on the hunt for a suitable bride when he meets sisters Kate and Edwina Sheffield, renamed Sharma for the show.

While he tries to pursue Edwina he finds himself becoming attracted to Kate instead, despite the fact they are often at odds with each other. 

With filming having kicked off this week, fans could hopefully expect a season two release date in 2022 – pandemic permitting.

Phoebe’s scenes as Daphne will no doubt see her cut a solo figure as her onscreen husband Simon will no longer appear after actor Regé-Jean quit the show, despite his character making a cameo in the second Bridgerton book.

Fans were left shocked recently when breakout star Page, 31, revealed he wouldn’t be reprising his role as the Duke of Hastings in the groundbreaking period drama.

Following the news, Bridgerton’s executive producer Shonda ‘dismissed’ the idea of creative differences being the reason behind Regé-Jean’s exit from the Netflix show. 

In a recent interview, she addressed the actor’s departure from the popular period drama for the first time, saying she was ‘shocked’ at the fans’ response to the news.  

Yet she shut down talk that she was behind the decision, telling Vanity Fair: ‘There’s a lot of fantastically interesting talk that’s been going on, mainly cause I think people are having a hard time letting go.’ 

She also dismissed claims that Regé-Jean turned down a deal for cameo appearances in Bridgerton’s second season, after it was reported that his lesser role in the next season was behind his reason to quit the show.

She also dismissed claims that Regé-Jean turned down a deal for cameo appearances in Bridgerton’s second season, after it was reported that his lesser role in the next season was behind his reason to quit the show. 

Reiterating that she had only made a one-season deal with the star, Shonda said she didn’t expect ‘this much of an explosion’ from the viewers.  

Netflix said in the first 28 days that the show was online, Bridgerton was streamed in 82 million households, and it came as little surprise when it was renewed for a second season in January.
