Bridgerton (TV Series) - Intro
Bridgerton is an American streaming television period drama series created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes. It is based on Julia Quinn’s novels set in the competitive world of Regency era London’s ton during the season, when debutantes are presented at court. It is Rhimes’s first scripted Netflix series.
Bridgerton‘s first season debuted on Netflix on December 25, 2020 to positive reviews, with a viewership of 82 million households, it became the most-watched series on Netflix at the time of its premiere, and remains the second most-watched series by total watch time on the platform. The second season debuted on March 25, 2022 and reached number one in 92 countries amassing 193 million hours of viewing time in its premiere weekend, the highest for any English-language Netflix series in its first three days.
In April 2021, creator Van Dusen posted on Twitter that the series had additionally been renewed for a third and fourth season.
Set against the backdrop of Regency era London, the Bridgerton siblings – Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory and Hyacinth – navigate the London society in search of love, surrounded by friends and rivals alike. Each episode includes narration by actress Dame Julie Andrews, who voices the anonymous and ever-scandalous newsletter columnist known as Lady Whistledown, who possesses knowledge of all the information in London, drawing everyone’s interest, even Queen Charlotte.
Unlike the series of novels, Bridgerton is set in an alternate history with a racially integrated London where people of color are members of the ton, some with titles granted by the sovereign. Creator Chris Van Dusen was inspired by historical debate over the 1940s African ancestry claims of Queen Charlotte “…to base the show in an alternative history in which Queen Charlotte’s mixed race heritage was not only well-established but was transformative for Black people and other people of color in England.” Van Dusen says the series is not “color-blind” because “that would imply that color and race were never considered, when color and race are part of the show.”
