Have you heard the news? Bridgerton is picked up for series 2!
If you have not watched series one yet, I highly recommend you stop whatever you are watching and go give it a try! During the Regency era in England, eight close-knit siblings of the powerful Bridgerton family attempt to find love. It is Downton Abbey meets Gossip girl, who wouldn’t love that?
It is reported by Variety to have reached 63 million households within four weeks of it releasing on Christmas Day. One of the most successful Netflix originals the platform has launched to date.
Bridgerton is based on a series written by Julia Quinn and Shonda Rhimes is the executive producer on the TV series. If you don’t know, Shonda Rhimes is one of my FAVOURITE screenwriters. Since high school, I have always had Grey’s Anatomy as my go to television series and have also enjoyed How To Get Away With Murder. As a screenwriter myself, I actually took the Masterclass by Shonda which really helped guide me on the fundamentals and not to give up on my passion for storytelling. I currently even have my own television series that I wrote within one month after watching her course! She is truly an inspiration and someone I aspire to work with one day.
I have sat through the series twice now and I can honestly say I would watch it a third time, so when I heard the news there was going to be another series I was very excited. A would be lying if I didn’t say there was a part of me that hopes I’ll get an audition for it – unlikely, but a girl can dream. But if you are a casting director reading this, keep me in mind(;
The music, costuming and actors are all stunning. If you don’t think you are a fan of period drama, at least give this one a try because I can assure you – you won’t be bored! But I will warn you, once you start you may not be able to stop!
So I want to know, have you seen series one and are excited for series two? Or maybe you haven’t yet but now you want to start? Let me know in the comments(:
