Chris Van Dusen says fans of the show shouldn’t be upset by the lack of sex in the new series.

The writer, who previously left his characters steamy on stairs and against trees, this time defends his decision to be less passionate, emphasizing that love scenes are always integral to the plot.

Before the second season hit Netflix on Friday, Van Dusen said: “For us, it’s never been about quantity.

“We’ve never done a sex scene for the sake of doing a sex scene and I don’t think we will.”

The new series focuses on the love triangle between Bridgerton’s eldest brother Anthony, played by Jonathan Bailey, and the two newly arrived Sharma sisters, Edwina and Kate – but no sex scenes between any of the main characters until the last two episodes.

The original heroine Daphne, played by Phoebe Dynevor, still shows up but there’s no sign of her dashing husband Duke Hastings, played by Rege-Jean Page.

Chris said the chemistry between Kate and Anthony, who started off fraught with hostility, was “off the charts”.

“It’s a different story this season, us with Anthony and Kate and that’s very different with Daphne and Simon,” he insisted.

“There’s a lot of sensuality in the look throughout the room and the hands graze and the fingers are almost touching. You can really feel it from episode to episode and you know that when they do. Once we get there, the climax – if you will – will be well-deserved.”

Simone Ashley, who plays Kate, agrees: “It makes sense for these characters because they’re very protective of their families and very honest with their duties and responsibilities.

“For them breaking that wouldn’t make sense. The sex scenes have a meaning behind them – they’re highly earned when the fireworks happen.”

In the opening episode, Lord Bridgerton is rejected by his longtime lover, opera singer Siena Rosso, played by Sabrina Bartlett, and is happily paying for sex with other women.

But realizing it was his duty to find a wife, he began to select a suitable candidate, announcing that she must have “brain, wisdom, and no children”.

Bailey, whose character enjoyed endless walks with Siena last time, said: “It bodes well for sequels that it’s not just about sex – it’s an important part of it. but there are many other wonderful things to be discovered. ”

Van Dusen, who will be leaving the show before the third series is scheduled to work on other projects, added: “Fans should expect a wild ride. We’ve worked hard to bring everything fans love from season one to season two. And I think we made it. It’s emotional and romantic and sexy and scandalous. ”
