Rupert Evans is not the only new addition this second season; there is also a female lead; Simone Ashley joins the cast as Kate Sharma, Charithra Chandran, who plays Edwina Sharma, as well as Rupert Young (Jack), Shelley Conn (Mary Sharma) and Calam Lynch (Theo Sharpe).
A sad departure this season is fan favorite, Regé-Jean Page who portrayed the Duke of Hastings, Daphne Bridgeton’s (Phoebe Dynevor) love interest. Although Page has gone on to other projects, we will be seeing Dynevor, she was recently spotted during filming in a lavish red carriage.
Some of the filmings for season 2 took place at the Old Royal Naval College at the University of Greenwich.

The series returns in the spring of 2021 and fans are excited to learn about Lady Whisteldown’s newest infamous gossip pamphlets.
