Fans of the hit Netflix show Bridgerton got quite a pleasant surprise on Friday.
Netflix and Shondaland announced that the Bridgerton-universe will be expanding with a new spin-off show.
According to Netflix, the all-new limited series will be based on the origins of Queen Charlotte.
While the series will focus on the rise and love life of a young Queen Charlotte, it will also tell the stories of a young Violet Bridgerton and a young Lady Danbury.
Shonda Rhimes will write the series and serve as executive producer alongside Betsy Beers and Tom Verica.
“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,” says Global Head of TV at Netflix, Bela Bajaria.
An official title for the series has yet to be determined.
More details on this exciting spin-off are expected to be released at a later date.
