Bridgerton Is the New Netflix Series Created by Shonda Rhimes

This year, Christmas is saved for Bridgerton. That’s when Shonda Rhimes decided to drop her first-ever period drama series on the streaming platform, Netflix. Rhimes is the brains behind the success of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, which is why fans of the producer can’t wait for the new release. This drama, however, features corsets and takes place a few hundred years ago.

Bridgerton — a Redefined Costume Drama on Netflix

Bridgerton is a new series that is based on the books by Julia Quinn. It fully redefines the costume drama format, and it has a fully inclusive cast, along with corsets and a lot of sass. Characters go through love, life, and backstabbing occurrences in Regency England. Julie Andrews is also the voice of the narrator.

The show is supposed to appeal to fans of Gossip Girl and Downton Abbey but still has a twist as the show takes place well before that time. Daphne Bridgerton, the eldest daughter of the family, is at the center of the drama, and the character is played by Phoebe Dynevor.

Viewers will watch as Phoebe navigates through the marriage market and battles all the drama that comes with it. Daphne’s overprotective brother becomes an obstacle when it comes to finding the right suitor, but that’s not it. A rebellious and also committed bachelor – Duke of Hasting, who is played by Regé-Jean Page, enters the running.

Bridgerton also stars Nicola Coughlan and a handful of other British actors including, Jonathan Bailey, Golda Rosheuvel, Luke Newton, Claudia Jessie, Ruby Barker, Luke Thompson, Sabrina Bartlett, Adjoa Andoh, Bessie Carter, Ruth Gemmell, Polly Walker, and Harriet Cains.

The series is set to release on Netflix on December 25th, and many people are adding it to their countdowns, along with the days left until Christmas.
