Bridgerton‘s popularity has been noticed by Netflix as Collider has reported this morning. The yet-to-be-named Bridgerton spin-off series will revolve around 3 of the ladies: a much younger Violet Bridgerton, Lady Danbury, & the brunt of the focus being on Queen Charlotte. The spin-off will take a look at the years before the first season takes place. Assuming we will see how Queen Charlotte came to be the Queen Charlotte we all know. With these new changes coming to the Bridgertonverse, new changes will also be coming behind the scenes.
New Showrunner for Bridgerton
Shonda Rhimes will be the executive producer and writer (showrunner) for the Bridgerton spin-off. Rhimes will also be taking Betsy Beers with her. Beers served as executive producer for the first season of Bridgerton. Rhimes is also bringing with her Tom Verica, who has been credited as co-executive producer for the first season of Bridgerton. Netflix seems to be keen on keeping continuity alive, possibly opening the door for crossovers.
With Netflix wanting to keep that continuity alive for their Bridgerton spin-off, they have decided to move Jess Brownell to showrunner after she has served as executive story editor for the first season of Bridgerton. Like most other showrunners, Brownell has experience writing. She wrote 5 episodes for ABC‘s Scandal from 2015-2018.
Netflix, Where is Season 2 of Bridgerton?
As you may already know, season 2 of Bridgerton began production back in late April of this year. With shooting still underway as I write. No set date has been announced for when season 2 will drop but if all goes correctly (which is rare for productions, especially ones on location) we should be able to get the next season in late 2021 but more likely early 2022.
The Netflix series Bridgerton is based on the book series written by Julia Quinn. I always want to give credit to the source material.
Who’s ready for not only the Bridgerton spin-off but also for season 2 of Bridgerton? Let me know in the comments below!
