Nicola Coughlan Opens Up About The 'Spicy' New Season of 'Bridgerton'

Nicola Coughlan is sharing new information about the upcoming season of Bridgerton.

The actress will resume her role as Penelope Featherington, aka Lady Whistledown, in the second season which will focus on Anthony Bridgerton’s love story.

“When you do season 1, you don’t know if you’re gonna get a season 2, but we were like, ‘I really hope we get a chance to tell that story because people love it so much,” she shared recently.

Nicola adds that “Kate is such a fiery character.”

“She’s like this strong, independent woman. We really wanted to get to that and the fact that we get to tell [it] is a real privilege,” she says.

Simone Ashley is set to play Kate, and the character’s younger sister Edwina, whom Anthony originally sets his sights on, will be played by Charithra Chandran

Nicola went on, saying that “there’s also the fun of a second season that you don’t have to do the exposition in order to be like, ‘This is the world of Bridgerton.’ People get what Bridgerton is now, and it’s become this phenomena, which is bonkers. But yeah, people know what they’re heading into, but they are not ready.”

“It’s got a whole lot spicier I will say,” she says. “You definitely see more sides to her. We find out at the end of season 1 [that she's Lady Whistledown], that is there but we don’t get to explore it. But the world cracks open. I feel like the Bridgerton world has grown and you’re going to see a lot more sides to her. She’s a sassy chick.”

Just recently, departing star Rege-Jean Page opened up about if he would have a cameo on the season. Here’s what he said…
