Several stars of the show including new leads Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley appeared in the clip where they read an ‘announcement’ from Lady Whistledown confirming the date, with some fans saying they will have to wait ‘so long’.

Jonathan, who plays Anthony Bridgerton, said: ‘Is that Whistledown? What’s she got to say today, the cheeky little mistress?’

All the stars read out a message saying: ‘Happy anniversary to our buzzy ton. It is customary for a first anniversary to gift paper, dear readers.

‘I do hope you find this one informative. Bridgerton returns March 25th.’

Bridgerton was renewed for a second season in January, followed by an early order for Seasons 3 and 4 in April.

Throughout the summer, the series skidded to a halt due to various coronavirus breakouts, with a source saying in September: ‘Filming has been in chaos due to Covid and bosses are hopping mad…

‘Dramas like The Crown have got their production moving without a hitch… This outbreak has taken down members of cast and crew.’

A source told MailOnline at the time: ‘The health and safety protocols that are implemented by production have allowed for fast action to be taken…

‘The proactive testing programme allows us to react quickly to mitigate the risk of transmission within the production.. The safety of the cast and crew is of the highest priority to the production.

‘All regular COVID-19 health and safety protocols were followed and those impacted have been isolated.

Ahead of the show returning to screens, Netflix described Simone’s new character Kate as ‘a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers no fools — Anthony Bridgerton very much included.’

In the first look trailer for Bridgerton, Kate defiantly confronts lothario Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan in a bid to call out his objective views of women. 

Bridgerton’s second series will be released on Netflix on March 25, 2022.
