Bridgerton explores the trials and tribulations of a high society family in early 19th century London. The second series installment, released in March 2022, stars Jonathan Bailey as Anthony; a bachelor viscount who intends to marry an Indian woman named Edwina (Charithra Chandran) but falls for her outspoken half-sister, Kate (Simone Ashley). Meanwhile, gossip columnist Lady Whistledown tries to protect her identity. Composer Kris Bowers (Inventing Anna) scored the Netflix series; music supervisors Alexandra Patsavas (Mad Men), Sarah Bridge (The Crown) and Justin Kamps (Lucifer) selected the needle-drop tunes that receive orchestral cover treatment. Here’s every song in Bridgerton, an adaptation of Julia Quinn’s novel series.
