Your First Look at Bridgerton Season 2 Is Finally Here

If you’re like us, then you’re completely and utterly obsessed with Netflix’s Bridgerton and need to know if a second season is on its way.

Well, it’s happening! Netflix confirmed Bridgerton season two on Wednesday, January 21. “Prepare for another social season. Bridgerton is returning for season two, only on Netflix,” reads a tweet from the show’s account. (Bridgerton has also been renewed for a third and fourth season, btw!) 

Here’s everything we know so far about what to expect: 

Filming. Production started in London in the spring of 2021. 

Season two will focus on Daphne’s brother. “We left Anthony Bridgerton at the end of the first season at a bit of a crossroads,” Van Dusen said on Today With Hoda & Jenna, “so I’m looking forward to jumping in and see how he fares in the marriage market.”

So, who is Kate Sheffield, Anthony’s leading lady? In the second book, The Viscount Who Loved Me, Kate Sheffield is the older sister of the woman Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) is set to marry, Edwina. But when she decides Mr. Bridgerton isn’t good enough for her little sis, it kicks off an enemies-to-lovers plot that readers loved.

On February 15, Netflix announced that Sex Education star Simone Ashley would be taking on the role of Kate, who will now be known as Kate Sharma. On May 1, People shared a new photo from the set of season two that features our new main couple, Anthony and Kate.

What should the fans expect between these two? “A lot of arguing,” Ashley said on September 25 during the TULUM fan event.

The cast has been wanting this for a while. Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, recently told Radio Times, “I feel like we’ve established this big world, so I’d love to explore more of it.”

She added, “I’d love to go on that journey with her, to see how she’s changed. I’d really love to come back, because I feel like we’ve just scratched the surface. And because there’s such a huge cast in this show, there’s so much more of all the characters.”

The show’s second season won’t be available any time soon, though. Much like The Crown, Bridgerton has a lengthy filming schedule, which means fans will likely have to wait until at least 2022 for Netflix to drop new episodes.

Sex Education Season 4 Is Officially Happening

You can stop worrying about that Sex Education cliffhanger because season four is officially happening.

On September 25, Ncuti Gatwa and Kedar Williams-Stirling kicked off the big announcement during Netflix’s massive TUDUM fan event. 

Honestly, season 3 left the entire Sex Education crew in a moment of major upheaval. Maeve (Emma Mackey) is off to America to further her education, leaving Otis (Asa Butterfield) relatively single once again. That’s okay, though, because his best friend Eric (Gatwa) is in a similar boat after breaking things off with Adam (Connor Swindells), which I’m still personally devastated about. But hey, maybe something might be brewing between Adam and Rahim (Sami Outalbali)? If so, that may be short-lived considering Moordale Secondary School has officially been sold, leaving everyone to finish their final year of school elsewhere.

Oh, and how can we forget? Dr. Jean Milburn (Gillian Anderson) has just read the paternity report for new baby Joy…and things aren’t looking so great for Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt).

Here’s everything we know about Sex Education season 4 so far:

Who is returning? Based on the new announcement, it’s safe to say Gatwa and Williams-Stirling will be reprising their roles as Eric Effiong and Jackson Marchetti, along with the rest of the main players. The biggest question mark at the moment is about Mackey, whose character is currently stateside. However, I have a feeling Maeve won’t be out of the picture for too long. 

Oh, and have we seen the last of Hope Hadden, played by Jemima Kirke? “Because Jemima is just so effortlessly cool, it becomes a very interesting thing to watch what this character is going to do next because you’re not quite sure,” creator Laurie Nunn told Glamour. “We’ll have to wait and see.”

Is Jakob the father? It’s pretty safe to assume the answer is no, considering Jean’s reaction in the finale as well as creator Nunn’s latest interview. “I think that Jakob is not the father,” she told Glamour. “And as I said, let’s really hope for series four so we can unpack that.”

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.


Stranger Things 4 Just Dropped a Creepy New Trailer Featuring Dustin and Steve

Steve and Dustin’s bromance will stay constant. “I like to think they’ll continue to grow and move forward as a team, and I’d like to see what new ways they help each other, and then what steps they get to in their relationship where they might not get along,” Joe Keery (Steve) said to Glamour. “That might make them appreciate more the levity in their relationship.”

Nancy Wheeler and Jonathan Byers will try for long-distance. Remember, the Byerses’ move out of Hawkins puts this fan-favorite couple at risk. “We don’t know [what will happen for them], and the past two seasons we’ve basically been filming together constantly, and it’s like, ‘Huh, what’s next season going to be like?’” Natalia Dyer (Nancy) revealed to Glamour. “We’ve been with these characters for three seasons, and we care about them, so I do think whatever happens between them, I hope it’s given time and space and integrity and reality to what they’re going through.”

The episode names. On November 6, 2019, the Twitter account @StrangerWriters revealed the name of season four, episode one: “The Hellfire Club.”

You can watch footage from the table read. In March 2020, Stranger Things shared a behind-the-scenes look at the entire cast reuniting in Atlanta for the first table read of season four.

When it does come back, it will be the scariest season yet. “Oh, man, it’s pretty amazing—the Duffer brothers have really done it again,” actor Joe Keery told Total Film magazine in May 2020, per People. “I think that this year—and I know I say this every single year—but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark.”

We are getting a slew of new cast members and characters. Here are the descriptions, per a press email from Netflix: 

Jamie Campbell Bower will play Peter Ballard, “a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital. Tired of the brutality he witnesses day after day, will Peter finally take a stand?”

Eduardo Franco will play Argyle, “Jonathan’s new best friend, a fun-loving stoner who proudly delivers delicious pizza pies for Surfer Boy Pizza.”

Joseph Quinn will play Eddie Munson, “an audacious ’80s metalhead who runs The Hellfire Club, Hawkins High’s official D&D club. Hated by those who don’t understand him (and beloved by those who do), Eddie will find himself at the terrifying epicenter of this season’s mystery.” 

Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Nikola Djuricko, Robert Englund, and Tom Wlaschiha will also have recurring roles. 

A new teaser dropped on September 25. Netflix gave us a look at a brand new location during the massive TUDUM fan event—and things are getting extremely creepy. Check out the clip featuring your fave duo, Steve and Dustin. 

We’ll update this post with more information as it comes in.

We Just Got a Bunch of New Details About The Flight Attendant Season 2

Clearly, there’s still more for Cuoco (and viewers) to learn and way more twists in store. Here’s everything we know so far:

Cassie is sober…and living in LA: Looks like The Flight Attendant is taking a page from the You handbook and moving its main character from the Big Apple to the City of Angels. However, unlike Joe Goldberg, the flight attendant will now be “living her best sober life in Los Angeles while moonlighting as a CIA asset in her spare time,” according to the new logline, per Entertainment Weekly. “But when an overseas assignment leads her to inadvertently witness a murder, she becomes entangled in another international intrigue.”

Many of the cast are returning: Aside from Cuoco, series regulars Zosia Mamet, Griffin Matthews, Deniz Akdeniz, and Rosie Perez will also return, along with guest stars T.R. Knight, Yasha Jackson, and Audrey Grace Marshall.

Colin Hutton/HBO Max

And here are some new faces: On September 24, HBO Max announced a series of new players. Mo McRae (Pitch) has been cast a Benjamin Berry, “a career CIA officer who may have a bad habit of getting a little too involved with his assets.” Meanwhile, Gabrielle, “a quick-tempered and calculating bounty hunter whose impulse control issues often get in the way of her job,” will be played by Callie Hernandez (Soundtrack). JJ Soria will play Gabrielle’s lover and fellow bounty hunter, Esteban, “who tries to keep a level head and stay focused on the job, but often gets just as heated as his girlfriend.”

Other new cast members include Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jessie Ennis (Mythic Quest), Jenny Mae Martin (Feel Good), Grace St. James, Margaret Cho (Good on Paper), Santiago Cabrera (Star Trek: Picard), and Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse).

The Flight Attendant is filming right now. According to EW, the series has begun production and is filming in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Reykjavik.

But what about the premiere date? The series is on track for a Spring 2022 premiere, according to TV Line. 

We will keep this post updated as more details arise. Until then, you can read all about that shocking season finale here

For Shoba Narayan, Playing Princess Jasmine Is About Honoring Brown Girls Like Her

Fast forward a few years to 2017, when she was an understudy in the Broadway musical Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. When she finally stepped into the lead role, the pressure to be good was enormous—it was the first time in more than 10 years that a South-Asian woman had a lead role on Broadway.

“Personally, I didn’t have anyone to look to when I was growing up,” she says. There weren’t Brown girls getting kissed in the rain on movie sets or singing in big dresses on Broadway stages. The closest thing for a ‘90s kid was Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine, a cartoon, improbably proportioned fictional character.

“To have someone who was strong, could sing, was beautiful, desirable, and brave, wanted to question authority and potentially rule a kingdom…I wanted to be her,” Narayan says. She grew up belting “A Whole New World” in the family room, and even grew her hair out to match the character. “She was the only thing that I had to relate to,” says Narayan. “So she meant a lot to me.”

When the pandemic closed down Broadway, Narayan was performing in Wicked on Broadway. It was full-circle for the one-time Dorothy actress—she was playing Nessarose, the future Wicked Witch of the East. When the theater turned dark, Narayan returned her sparkly slippers. Months later, she got a call from her agent. Suddenly she was auditioning for her dream role over Zoom. Think you’ve had a rough virtual meeting? You’ve never had to pretend to be riding on a magic carpet while in Gallery Mode.

But she got the part. She’ll be climbing very, very, carefully aboard a carpet that will whisk her high into the air, where she’ll sing an iconic song, for a rapt audience. She imagines her body and her voice floating in that big, empty space, the “gasps and tears and cheers” of the audience.

Whenever she plays a big role, Narayan says, she hears from people in the South Asian community. But she also hears from people of all different minorities. “They see someone like me being the lead in the show, portraying a character who is strong and desirable and the center of the story. I think they all feel seen and that they’re represented on stage.”

Soon, she’ll be sharing her gifts with audiences who haven’t seen a live performance in years. There will be laughter, fist pumps, rapturous applause.

Shoba Narayan will be there. And she’ll be good.

Sarah Jessica Parker Says Costar Willie Garson’s Death Is ‘Unbearable’ in Moving Tribute

Sarah Jessica Parker just shared a moving tribute to her Sex and the City costar and friend, Willie Garson

“It’s been unbearable,” Parker shared on September 24, three days after Garson died at 57 years old. “Sometimes silence is a statement. Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30 + year friendship. A real friendship that allowed for secrets, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood and all the heartaches and joy that accompany, triumphs, disappointments, fear, rage, and years spent on sets (most especially Carrie’s apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ.”

She continued, “Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together. I will re-read every text from your final days and put to pen our last calls. Your absence a crater that I will fill with blessing of these memories and all the ones that are still in recesses yet to surface.”

In the lengthy Instagram message, which featured a series of moments between Sarah Jessica Parker and Willie Garson on and off the set of their series, the actor shared his last words to her. “Great bangles all round,” he told her, to which she writes, “Yes. Godspeed Willie Garson. RIP.”

Following the shocking news of the White Collar star’s death after a battle with pancreatic cancer, many of his Sex and the City costars—some of whom recently reunited with Garson to film the reboot, And Just Like That…—took to social media to pay homage to the prolific actor known for his portrayal of Stanford Blatch. 

“So deeply, deeply sad we have lost @WillieGarson,” Cynthia Nixon tweeted. “We all loved him and adored working with him. He was endlessly funny on-screen and and in real life. He was a source of light, friendship and show business lore. He was a consummate professional—always.”

“Such sad news and a terribly sad loss to the SATC family,” Kim Cattrall tweeted. “Our condolences and RIP dear Willie xo.” Kristin Davis also posted a lengthy Instagram tribute.

On September 22, Chris Noth shared an image of Parker and Garson to Instagram, simply writing, “Willie.” At the time, Parker replied to the post, “Thank you dearest Chris. I’m not ready yet.”


Rihanna Does Not Consult A$AP Rocky About Her Fashion Designs: ‘Do You Know Who I Am?’

By late November, sources tell People that the pair are officially dating

December 2020: Nearly one month later, they are spotted kissing in Barbados, where they reportedly are spending the holidays with her family. “Spending Christmas together was an obvious step for Rihanna and A$AP,” a source tells E.T. “They’ve known each other for so long as friends and in a work setting, which makes it so easy for them to get along, travel together, and be involved in each other’s lives to the full extent. They always have such a good time together and definitely seem in love.”

May 2021: In GQ’s June cover story (published in May), the “Fuckin Problems” rapper confirms his relationship with Rihanna, calling her “the love of my life” and “my lady.”

He also referred to Rihanna as “the One” while discussing why he favors monogamy to being single. “So much better when you got the One,” he says. “[Rihanna] amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”

June 2021: While A$AP Rocky confirmed the relationship in May, Rihanna has yet to make an official statement. However, that did not keep her from engaging in more PDA with the rapper in New York City. Click here for photos.

July 2021: By July 11, these two couldn’t keep their hands off each other while filming a project together in New York City. Once again, click here for photos.

August 2021: Rumors begin to swirl that an engagement could be imminent. “These two are so madly in love, and it’s true there’s a lot of buzz in their circle about an engagement being in the works,” a source tells Us Weekly in a new report. “Going by the hints Rocky’s been dropping, [it] may well happen soon, but there’s no pressure and what matters most to both of them is to keep building on this truly beautiful thing they’ve got going.”

September 2021: Rihanna and A$AP hit the red carpet together at the 2021 Met gala in a very “opposites attract” moment. Rihanna opted for an all-black ensemble by Balenciaga, while he went for a multicolored number by Eli Russell Linnetz.

Later in the month, the Fenty mogul revealed that she has no interest in consulting her boyfriend regarding her men’s fashion designs. “Are you kidding me? Do you know who I am? I’m a control freak,” Rihanna told People at the premiere of the Savage x Fenty Vol. 3 show. “Listen, he’s proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish and all of my designs.”

This Viral Rihanna Doppelgänger Is Confusing TikTok

Celebrity doppelgänger TikTok keeps growing—and this time, we’ve got another Rihanna look-a-like on our hands. 

Earlier this month, TikTok user @notavrey posted a video that’s now going viral over her Bad Gal RiRi vibes. “You’re so used to your own features you don’t realize what you look like to others,” the video reads as Avery lip-syncs to “Feels” by Kehlani while utilizing the Long Face filter. By the time she hits the lyric, “you give me feels,” the filter goes away and BAM: you’re looking at baby Rihanna with blonde hair.

Currently, the video has 3.4 million views and over 500,000 likes. One user commented, “I ran to the comments knowing y’all calling her Rihanna.” They were absolutely right. 

“Rihanna…sorry…Rihanna…sorry,” another user wrote, while one superfan chose to treat the TikToker just like the  Savage x Fenty mogul, writing, “you’re not slick Rih, give us an album.” 

Who knows how long it will take for the real Rihanna to find this long-lost twin, considering the “Love on the Brain” singer definitely caught wind of her last viral look-a-like. Just over a year ago, TikTok user Priscila Beatrice uploaded a viral video of herself impersonating the singer that led everyone—including Rihanna—to question everything.

In the clip, Beatrice is seen with her back toward the camera as Dej Loaf’s “Back Up” plays in the background. The words “OMG [is that] Rihanna” then pop up before she turns around and reveals her face, with her makeup and hair styled exactly like Rihanna did when she won her first-ever fashion award for Fenty at the Fashion Awards 2019.

“Where the album sis? #R9,” the actual Rihanna replied to The Shade Room’s Instagram upload, as seen in this post by Comments By Celebs. 

Funny she should ask. Rihanna recently revealed that her upcoming album is on its way, and it’s going to be “different” than anything we’ve heard from her before. “You’re not going to expect what you hear. Just put that in your mind,” Rihanna said recently before the taping of her Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3 event, per Billboard. The special will airs in full on September 24 on Amazon Prime Video.

She continued, “Whatever you know of Rihanna is not going to be what you hear…I’m really experimenting. Music is like fashion. You should be able to play. I should be able to wear whatever I want. I treat music the same way. So I’m having fun and it’s going to be completely different.”
