The second season of Netflix's steamy period drama "Bridgerton" hit Netflix on March 25, and fans are eating up the Regency-era fashion, the scandalous gossip from Lady Whistledown, and all the royal drama. Thankfully, Netflix's platform Tudum and the show's music supervisor, Justin Kamps, have generously released the music that will be given a classical twist this season.
If you recall from the first season's soundtrack, songs like Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy," Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next," and Shawn Mendes's "In My Blood" were given their Regency rendition by American composer and pianist Kris Bowers. The witty string-quartet arrangements of pop songs quickly became a prominent part of the narrative, with fans tuning in not only for the drama and romance but also to hear which one of their contemporary favorites would be given the remix.
For season two, each track has been carefully selected based on the upcoming storylines, according to "Bridgerton" showrunner Chris Van Dusen, who explained the songs were chosen for very specific reasons. "Each one is incredibly powerful and deeply emotional in its own special way," Van Dusen said, so make sure to have your tissues ready.
As season two debuts, it's customary to look even further ahead at the third and fourth season of "Bridgerton" that have already been confirmed. "Bridgerton" season two, which is now streaming on Netflix, includes Regency versions composed and covered by the likes of Bowers, the Vitamin String Quartet, Duomo, and many more. Read on to see which musical favorites, some of which span as far back as the '80s, are featured in the soundtrack.
