Bridgerton is an upcoming Netflix series based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling novels of the same name. The romance novel of Quinn is ready to turn into a series which will be created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes.
The book from which the series is adapted follows the life of a well to do family settled in Regency-era London. Netflix hasn’t given out any crucial details on how the adaption of Bridgerton is going to be like, but since the book has a strong plotline, we hope Netflix adapts a good version of it if not better.
The book is a collection of eight novels. Each of them focuses on the life of one of the eight children. Netflix hasn’t dropped any notable hints for us to dwell upon, but just that the drama will unfold the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society.
Bridgerton: Release Date
The romantic drama is currently in production from July 2019. We expected the show to release somewhere around in mid or late 2020, but then coronavirus came in. So we have no clue when the series is launching now, it could launch a year later also.
