'Bridgerton' Spinoff Series Confirmed, Will Focus on Younger Version of Beloved Character!

A Bridgerton prequel series is in the works, marking the first spinoff of the beloved series!

Netflix and Shondaland are teaming up to add a second show to the smash hit franchise after Bridgerton became the biggest series of all time for the streamer.

The prequel series will focus on the younger version of a fan-favorite character and Shonda Rhimes is set to write limited series. While she was an executive producer on Bridgerton, she never actually wrote or directed any of the episodes.

Queen Charlotte in Bridgerton

The prequel series will follow the origins of Queen Charlotte, played by Golda Rosheuvel in Bridgerton. This was a reimagined character for the Netflix series and she wasn’t part of the book series by Julia Quinn.

The spinoff series will follow Charlotte’s rise and love life and it will also tell the stories of young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury.

Netflix head of global TV Bela Bajaria told Deadline, “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. 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. And by planning and prepping all the upcoming seasons now, we also hope to keep up a pace that will keep even the most insatiable viewers totally fulfilled.”

It has also been announced that Jess Brownell will be the showrunner of Bridgerton‘s third and fourth seasons, taking over for series creator Chris Van Dusen, who will wrap up the second season.

“As we continue to expand the world of Bridgerton, we now have the opportunity to devote even more of the Shondaland fold to the Bridgerton-verse,” Shondaland CEO Shonda Rhimes said. “We’ve worked with Jess Brownell for over a decade and have long wanted to find the right project to place in her hands. When it came time to pass the baton, I knew this unique voice was vital to the future of the show.”
