Netflix’s new period drama Bridgerton doesn’t stream until Christmas, but we’re already counting down the days.

Based on Julia Quinn’s beloved historic romance novel series of the same name, the show is the first of eight that will be created for Netflix by Shonda Rhimes’s production company Shondaland (Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal anyone?)

“I’ve been a fan of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series since I can remember,” Rhimes tweeted. “The originality. The sexiness. The storytelling. Everything about it. I quickly knew that @shondaland had to turn them into a series.”

The books and the shows come together here.
