We calculate theoretically the optical conductivity in the bilayer graphene by considering Kubo-Green-Matsubara formalism. Different regimes of the interlayer coupling parameter have been considered in the paper. We show that the excitonic effects substantially affect the optical conductivity spectrum at the high-frequency regime when considering the full interaction bandwidth, leading to a total suppression of the usual Drude intraband optical transition channels and by creating a new type of optical gap. We discuss the role of the interlayer coupling parameter and the Fermi level on the conductivity spectrum, going far beyond the usual tight-binding approximation scheme for the extrinsic bilayer graphene.
