Call us Lady Whistledown because we’ve got the scoop on the new Bridgerton soundtrack.
With Bridgerton season 2 fast approaching, it’s nearly time to transport ourselves once again to the Regency period, replete with lush fashion and glamorous balls.
As fans may recall from the first season, Bridgerton likes to put on a spin on what one might expect for music from the period, choosing to give modern songs an orchestral twist.
The string quartets of Bridgerton Season 1 included renditions of Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy, Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next, Shawn Mendes’ In My Blood.
One of the most romantic and memorable montages—Rege-Jean Page’s Duke of Hastings’ honeymoon montage with Daphne—was soundtracked to Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams.
Explaining how the songs get chosen, Bridgerton showrunner Chris Van Dusen told Netflix’s Tudum editorial site, “I chose all of these songs for very specific reasons. Each one is incredibly powerful and deeply emotional in its own special way. I always try many different songs for any one scene before landing on the perfect one to use. This season, I couldn’t be more thrilled about our musical playlist.”
Bridgerton season 2 soundtrack
From the Queen of Pop Madonna to grunge kings Nirvana, there’s plenty of royalty the Regency set will be dancing to in the new season.
Bridgerton’s second season soundtrack includes:
- Stay Away, Nirvana (Vitamin String Quartet)

The best news of all—they’re already thinking ahead to season 3.
Chris Van Dusen told Tudum, “Season 3 is a fresh start, so we’ll be looking for… a brand new round of songs and covers for that soon enough.”
Specific artists he mentioned he was looking into included Olivia Rodrigo, Doja Cat and Dua Lipa.
Bridgerton season 2 releases on Netflix on March 25.
