Netflix and Shondaland have announced plans for a new limited series based on the early life of Queen Charlotte, while also telling the tale of a young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury.
The series will be written by Shonda Rhimes and she will serve as an executive producer alongside Betsy Beers and Tom Verica. An official title and more details will be revealed at a later time.
Netflix executive Bela Bajaria said, “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.”
