Bridgerton Spinoff On the Way!

May 14, 2021

As reported exclusively in Deadline Hollywood, Netflix is adding a second show to the Bridgerton franchise: a limited prequel series based on the origins of Queen Charlotte, which will be written by Shonda Rhimes.

From the Deadline article:

“The Queen Charlotte limited series will center on the rise and love life of a young Queen Charlotte, the reimagined character added to the Bridgerton series that was not in Julia Quinn’s novels on which the show is based. Played by Golda Rosheuvel, Queen Charlotte quickly became a fan favorite and one of Bridgerton‘s breakout characters. The spinoff will also tell the stories of young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury.”

From Julia Quinn: “I am over the moon with this news and so incredibly grateful to Netflix, the Shondaland team, and most especially all the Bridgerton fans who have welcomed the show and the books into their lives.”
