Fans of the hit Netflix drama are fanning themselves in anticipation for season 2, which will focus on the sizzling courtship between Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and newcomer Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley).
After the first season brought the heat with the burning romance between Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page) and Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), when will Penelope’s time come to be wooed?
Soon, it appears!
While speaking to Elle UK, Nicola, 35, addressed the relationship that Penelope shares with Colin Bridgerton – played Luke Newton, 28, in the TV series – as their bond is known to develop romantically in the books.
Not one to beat around the bush, the Derry Girls star promised that their steamy connection is ‘going to happen’.

‘We [she and Luke] used to joke about it, really inappropriate jokes, like, “Wouldn’t it be funny if we did this when we do it?” And then as time goes on it becomes more real. Now it’s not funny anymore! Everyone’s like, “You’re going to have to kiss Luke! On the lips!”’ she said.
When asked if she knows when their on-screen romance is going to blossom, Nicola revealed that she is indeed in the know.
‘I do. I do know. I’ve been told. Yeah,’ she said.
However, of course the exact details of how the storyline will unfold will remain a closely-guarded secret.
Earlier this month, Bridgerton released first look images of the second season, showing Kate getting up close and personal with Anthony, the new lead looking sleek while out shooting and Penelope sharing a private conversation with her close friend Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie).
Following her efforts to find out the identity of Lady Whistledown in season one, could Eloise discover her best friend is behind the persona when the new episodes are released?
One picture also showed the return of Phoebe as Daphne, although Regé-Jean won’t be reprising his role as her partner, Simon.
Bridgerton is available to watch on Netflix.
