The Bridgerton-verse is expanding! Netflix and Shondaland today announced plans for an all-new limited series based on the origins of Queen Charlotte — the reimagined and beloved character who captivated 82 Million households around the world in Season 1.
While the series will center on the rise and love life of a young Queen Charlotte, it will also tell the stories of young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury. Shonda Rhimes will write the series and serve as executive producer alongside Betsy Beers and Tom Verica. An official title and more details will be revealed at a later time.
Additionally, Netflix and Shondaland are proud to welcome Jess Brownell (Bridgerton S1 & S2, Inventing Anna, and Scandal) as Showrunner for Seasons 3 and 4. Showrunner Chris Van Dusen who brilliantly brought Season 1 to life is currently in production on Season 2. Based upon the series of novels by Julia Quinn, season 2 focuses on Anthony Bridgerton’s quest for love.
