Bridgeton author Chris Van Dusen, who adopted the period series from Jula Quinn’s novels, says the show’s mega success on Netflix has challenged him to stick to his original vision.
The second season of the show, which debuted on the streamer in December 2020, was lapped by fans and will premiere on March 25th.
“I had a very clear vision for Season 1 and I had the freedom to pursue it,” Van Dussen told Entertainment Weekly.
“Then the show came out and started to capture the world. It was all very realistic. Sticking to my original vision (for Season 2) was more of a challenge, but it made me even more frustrated.
The show was praised for its diverse casting, beautiful costumes and story, and made its stars, especially the reggae-gene page, popular overnight.
However, fans were shocked to learn that Page, who introduced Duke, would not return to the following season focusing on another brother’s love life.
Van Dussen is not worried about the absence of the page.
“My intention was to follow the different Bridgeton brothers every season,” he said.
