As every “Bridgerton” fan knows — whether they liked it at first or not — the show’s focus will be shifting from Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon (Rege-Jean Page) for its second season to a new leading couple: Daphne’s eldest brother, Anthony Bridgerton (played by Jonathan Bailey), and his love interest, Kate Sharma (“Sex Education” alum Simone Ashley).

And now we finally have our first look at the new romantic pairing in costume, thanks to some pictures snapped on the set of the Shonda Rhimes-produced Netflix series’ second season, which recently began production.

As you can see in the on-the-set photo, which you can view here, Bailey and Ashley are in full Regency-era costume as their “Bridgerton” counterparts. From the looks of things, in this scene, Anthony and Kate are attending a horse race along with other “Bridgerton” characters, like Anthony’s brothers Colin (Luke Newton) and Benedict (Luke Thompson), his sister Eloise (Claudia Jessie), his mother, Lady Violet Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell), and Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh).

More to come…
