Julia Quinn talks about her new book that has inside jokes for Bridgerton readers

JQ talks about the inspiration behind Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron, a graphic novel which is “a madcap romantic adventure complete with talking pigeons, a kind of inside joke for readers of the Bridgerton books.” It comes out on May 10, and is a collaboration with her late younger sister Violet Charles, a cartoonist.

Last summer Quinn’s sister and their father, Stephen Lewis Cotler, were killed by a drunk driver.

QUINN: “[This book] is a thing of joy to talk about because [Violet] was so, so funny, and it’s all her. She had the most absurd sense of humor, and it’s all there in the book. I feel like my last gift to her is to bring this out into the world with as much excitement and fanfare that I can…”

Bridgerton Spinoff On the Way!

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.”
