Bridgerton is an American streaming television period drama series created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes. It is based on Julia Quinn’s novels set in the competitive world of Regency era London’s ton during the season, when debutantes are presented at court.
Bridgerton premiered on Netflix on December 25, 2020. The eight-episode first season was met with positive reviews.
With a viewership of 82 million households, it has become the most-watched series on Netflix. In January 2021, the series was renewed for a second season.
The drama takes place in 19th century Britain.
It centers on the aristocratic Bridgerton family.
The widow Violet, Dowager Viscountess Bridgerton is mother to eight children: her four sons, Anthony, Benedict, Colin, and Gregory; and her four daughters, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, and Hyacinth.
(In birth order, their names are also alphabetical.) Also featured are their gaudy neighbors, the Featheringtons: Portia, Lady Featherington; her husband the Baron; and their three daughters, Philippa, Prudence and Penelope; as well as their mysterious cousin Marina Thompson.
Each episode includes narration by actress Julie Andrews, who voices the anonymous and ever-scandalous newsletter columnist known as Lady Whistledown. อ่านต่อ
