Netflix and Shondaland have revealed new additions to the cast of the hit period series for season 2, including Irish actor Calam Lynch.

Since his debut in Christopher Nolan’s Oscar-nominated Dunkirk, Lynch starred opposite Ruth Wilson in Mrs Wilson and appeared as John Paul O’Reilly in Lisa McGee’s hit channel 4 series Derry Girls. The young Irish actor, who appeared most recently in the new Black Beautyfor Disney+, will play Theo Sharpe in Bridgerton S02, a hardworking printer's assistant described as “not just a working-class man, he's also an intellectual who fights for the rights for all”. 

Based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, Bridgerton, is set in the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society.  From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground.  At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family.  Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.  

Seaons 2 will see Lynch link up with Derry Girls co-star Nicola Coughlan, who was nominated for season 1 of the series at the 2021 SAG awards along with the rest of the cast for Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Other additions to the cast for season 2 include Charithra Chandran (Alex Rider), Shelly Conn (Liar) and Rupert Young (Dear Evan Handsen). Chris Van Dussen acts as creator and showrunner and Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers are executive producers.   

Bridgerton will return to production this Spring.
