Bridgerton's Queen Charlotte to be centre of new prequel series
The limited series will head back to the late 1700s and early 1800s.
A Bridgerton prequel series focusing on a younger version of fan favourite character Queen Charlotte is in development at Netflix.
Originally played by Golda Rosheuvel, this currently untitled series will chart her rise to becoming the Queen of England and explore her complicated love life.
It will also feature younger versions of the characters Violent Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell) and Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh).
The series will be written and produced by Shonda Rhimes but it’s not yet been announced who will take on directing duties.
"Many viewers had never known the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I’m thrilled this new series will further expand her story and the world of Bridgerton,” said Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s head of global TV
"Shonda and her team are thoughtfully building out the Bridgerton universe so they can keep delivering for the fans with the same quality and style they love."
Filming on the second season of the hugely popular series is also now underway. This will shift its focus to the oldest sibling Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and his quest to find love.
You can stream the entire first season of Bridgerton on Netflix now.
