“Bridgerton” Renewed for 2nd Season as Netflix Viewers Swoon Over Soft Core Sex-and-Royalty Fantasy


Not surprising, “Bridgerton” will return for a second season on Netflix. The Shonda Rhimes produced soft core sex and royalty fantasy is a total hit. Viewers can’t get enough of this trashy fun series, the stars are getting huge promotion, and the Netflix PR department successfully planted a story that Porn Hub is now littered with clips from the show.
