A “Bridgerton” spinoff about a young Queen Charlotte has been ordered to series at Netflix.
Along with delving into the origin story of Queen Charlotte, the limited series will also follow young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury. Shonda Rhimes is set to write and executive produce, with Betsy Beers and Tom Verica also executive producing.
“As we continue to expand the world of ‘Bridgerton,’ we now have the opportunity to devote even more of the Shondaland fold to the Bridgerton-verse,” Rhimes said.
In addition, Jess Brownell will serve as showrunner on Seasons 3 and 4 of “Bridgerton,” taking over from Chris Van Dusen, who is currently at work on Season 2 of the hit series.
After Season 1’s debut on Christmas Day 2020, Netflix said “Bridgerton” was on track to reach 63 million households in the first 28 days, which would make it the fifth-largest Netflix original series launch to date. Netflix’s proprietary viewing metric counts a view as any account that has watched at least two minutes of a title.
Based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, “Bridgerton” is set in the lavish and competitive world of London high society. From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a “seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground,” per Netflix. At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family: Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, the witty and daring group must navigate the 19th century marriage scene in search of romance, adventure and love.
