We burn for Bridgerton. This Netflix & Shondaland collaboration has proven to be timeless and we can’t help but love the series. It’s no surprise that Netflix has revamped the series after the massive success of Season 1. We got to see the blossoming and ever so steamy romance between the Duke of Hastings and Daphne Bridgerton during the first season. Unfortunately, the Duke is MIA for Season 2.
Lady Whistledown shared the latest news straight out of the barrel: we’re getting a spin-off! Who will play the leading role in this Bridgerton spin-off? Let’s discover the mysterious spin-off series and its secrets.
The queen has arrived
That’s right, the Bridgerton spin-off will be aimed at the royal and gossip lover – Queen Charlotte. The self-titled series will focus on Queen Charlotte’s origin story. It will be a limited series written by Shonda Rhimes as she reveals what makes the royal ticks real.
Netflix’s Bela Bajaria recently shared her thoughts on Queen Charlotte, sharing more of it Bridgerton‘s Story: “Many viewers never knew the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I am delighted that this new series will tell her story and the world of Bridgerton.
“Shonda and her team are carefully building the Bridgerton universe so that they can continue to deliver to the fans with the same quality and style they love. And by planning and preparing for all of the coming seasons now, we also hope to maintain a pace that will keep even the most insatiable viewers fully satisfied. “
Rewinding time (even further) will also give us a glimpse of a young Violet Bridgerton and her courtship with the late Mr. Bridgerton. We also get the chance to discover Lady Danbury and what she was like in her younger years.
The Bridgerton universe
Fortunately for us, Netflix announced that they were renewing Bridgerton for season 2 (focused on the beautiful Anthony Bridgerton). But wait – there’s more! We will also get to see seasons 4 and 5 and expand the universe a lot more. After it was revealed that 82 million households watched Season 1, it’s no surprise that Netflix wanted seconds.
Showrunner Chris Van Dussen will be the showrunner for Season 2 (currently in production). “With Bridgerton, I went out to make the period show I’ve always wanted to see. I could never have foreseen how much the rest of the world wanted to see it. I am extremely proud of this remarkable cast and incredible crew, and I am so grateful for the continued support of Shonda, with whom I have worked for 17 years. “
We are clearly not the only ones who love period dramas. With the second season focused on the novel by Julia Quinn The viscount who loved mewe can only assume that the following seasons will also follow the series.
Farewell to the Duke of Hasting
Sadly, despite complaints from fans on social media, Regé-Jean Page will not be returning for his role as the handsome duke.
Shonda told Rhimes The Hollywood Reporter, “I was just excited about the idea of being able to tell a complete romantic story that has an ending, where you can’t find 14 other reasons why the couple can’t be together or, frankly, let Regé in the background Anders’s romance makes no sense. “
According to Rhimes, she was shocked by the uproar caused by fans after Page’s departure. ‘I was really shocked because that usually happens when I killed someone who has been around for a while. For example, we didn’t kill him, he’s still alive. “
