Exciting news for “Bridgerton” fans! Not only did the new second season just release this past Friday, but Netflix also just announced that “Bridgerton” will get a spinoff series that will be a prequel!
Essence reports the series will tell the story of a younger Queen Charlotte. It will focus on the Queen’s rise to power as well as her marriage to King George and their love story. There is currently no set title for the series, but it is confirmed that British actress India Amarteifo will play the young Queen. She played Lizzie in Netflix’s “Sex Education”.
The eight episodes will also feature a young Lady Danbury played by Adjoa Andoh, as well as a young Violet Bridgerton. The young King of England will be played by Corey Mylchreest.
And do you know Brimsley, the Queen’s servant who can’t keep secrets? We will see a younger version of him as well.
Tom Verica will direct the eight episodes and serve as an executive producer. He played Sam Keating in How To Get Away With Murder. Plus, it couldn’t be “Bridgerton” without Shonda Rhimes as head writer and executive producer.
