In Episode 1, “Locating Bridgerton,” showrunner Chris Van Dusen describes wanting to create, “the most gorgeous, rich aspirational English garden anybody’s ever seen.”
Episode 2, “The Reason for the Season,” explores the marriage market. FUN! Featuring cast and crew — and JQ herself, thankyouverymuch — the Official Bridgerton Podcast talks about how the show was created, discusses the storyline, music, the costumes and sets, the historical context of the era and so much more!

“It’s kind of funny,” she tells E! News. “People saying, ‘How are you feeling?’ and I’m just like…every day something new and amazing happens and I just am smiling so hard that I just break out into spontaneous laughter. It’s insane and wonderful.”

It’s official! Netflix has renewed BRIDGERTON for a second season!
It’s thrilling! So many new-to-JQ readers put three books: The Duke and I, The Viscount Who Loved Me, and Romancing Mister Bridgerton on the New York Times bestseller list — with The Duke and I holding the top slot for three weeks running! And ten — TEN! — titles on the USA Today list. That’s an exciting lot of new Bridgerton readers. How long until they discover the prequels? The romance of Violet & Edmund’s generation await readers with the Rokesbys…
It’s fun! With all the Bridgerton love going around, JQ is on Cloud Nine!
JQ is interviewed by Alison Flood and talks about the Bridgerton show, the cast, THAT scene, and more. Here’s an excerpt:
The show switches the race of some of Quinn’s key characters, who are white on the page: the duke is played by Regé-Jean Page, while Adjoa Andoh is the magnificently acerbic dowager Lady Danbury. “I think it’s wonderful and joyous,” says Quinn. “Previously, I’ve gotten dinged by the historical accuracy police. So in some ways, I was fearful – if you do that, are you denying real things that happened? But you know what? This is already romantic fantasy, and I think it’s more important to show that as many people as possible deserve this type of happiness and dignity. So I think they made the absolutely right choice, bringing in all this inclusivity.”
