When Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story debuted on Netflix on Christmas Day in 2020, it really blew us away. The fairytale conclusion for the Duke and Duchess of Hastings in Season 1 of the Regency-era period drama broke streaming records and had us clamouring for more following the season finale. An agonisingly long wait after the promise of a second season was mercifully lessened when it became known that the Bridgerton world was expanding with a prequel spin-off based on Her Majesty Queen Charlotte.
The namesake family and the examination of each sibling’s love life are at the heart of the Bridgerton series, but Queen Charlotte quickly became a fan favourite thanks to her larger-than-life persona. She is now in charge of getting Shondaland to create a time-traveling carriage that will transport us back in time to discover the origins of a character who was based on a real-life historical figure.
With the formal announcement that Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Tale will be available for viewing on May 4, 2023, Netflix will be starting off May with a bang.
