The Bridgerton Universe continues to expand on Netflix. Faced with the success of this historical fiction which has already obtained a renewal until its season 4, the video-on-demand giant announces to us that it has placed an order for a derivative series.
The Bridgerton Chronicle brings to screen Julia Quinn’s literary series and takes place in high London society during the 19th century English Regency to tell us the story of the Bridgerton family, with parents, their four sons, and their four daughters, including Daphne who was at the heart of the first season. Season 2, which is filming (without Regé-Jean Page), focuses on the eldest son of the family, Anthony, with Chris Van Dusen as showrunner. It has just been announced that for seasons 3 and 4, Jess Brownell will be the showrunner.
Either way, Netflix has commissioned a spinoff series that will center on young Queen Charlotte. The series will therefore return to the origins of the character, and will also follow Violet Bridgerton (now mother of the Bridgerton clan) and Lady Danbury (Simon’s mentor in season 1). In writing, we will find Shonda Rhimes who is naturally the executive producer of the series, standing behind what is emerging as the Bridgerton franchise, along with Shondaland.
Netflix has therefore put everything in place to ensure as much as possible to deliver Bridgerton regularly to subscribers.
