Debuting in December 2020, Bridgerton quickly emerged as one of Netflix’s biggest hits and the streaming service is fully committed to giving fans more of what they want — well aside from more of the Duke Hastings that is.
Shortly after season 1’s debut, Netflix announced a second season was officially in the works with the show’s second season set to shift the focus to Anthony Bridgerton and his search for love — staying true to the storyline mapped out in the Julia Quinn novels which the show is based on. Not long after, Netlfix decided to place an even larger wager on the romantic period drama by picking the show up for two additional seasons, ensuring it will run for at least four seasons!
As if the promise of more seasons of Bridgerton isn’t exciting enough, Netflix is also looking to expand the franchise further with a prequel series set before the events of season 1 in announcing plans for a Queen Charlotte-focused Bridgerton spinoff.
Below, we shared everything you need to know about the Bridgerton spinoff release date, cast, plot synopsis, trailer, and more.
Bridgerton spinoff title
At this time, Netflix has not revealed the title for its Bridgerton spinoff which has been announced as a limited series centering around a younger version of Queen Charlotte as well as a few additional core characters from the flagship series.
Bridgerton spinoff release date
Currently, Netflix has not revealed a release date for its Bridgerton spinoff and we don’t anticipate the series will be arriving in 2021.
With production on season 2 having started in Spring 2021, it seems Netflix will focus on completing the second season of Bridgerton before shifting focus to its spinoff project. Should Netflix complete season 2 of Bridgerton in time for a late 2021 release date, it is possible we could see the Bridgerton spinoff arrive sometime in 2022.
Once casting begins we should begin to get a clearer picture for when production on the show will begin which will therefore give us an idea of when the spinoff might make its way to Netflix.
Bridgerton spinoff cast
Netflix has not yet announced any casting news for its Bridgerton spinoff but we hopefully won’t have to wait long to see just who they tap to play the show’s critical roles. Although no actors are attached to the project, we do know which characters from the Bridgerton series are set to appear in the show.
With the spinoff designed as a spinoff centering around a young Queen Charlotte, fans can expect the character to be the lead focus of the project. Additionally, Netflix is expected to cast a young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury, so it also seems safe to assume the series will cast young versions of the characters’ suitors which would include King George III and Edmund Bridgerton.
Bridgerton spinoff synopsis
The Bridgerton spinoff is expected to center on a young Queen Charlotte with a focus on her rise to power and love life. The show is also expected to explore the backstories of Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury meaning we’ll likely learn how Violet met the late Edmund Bridgerton and perhaps be introduced to Lady Danbury’s late love interest as well.
Bridgerton spinoff trailer
Because the project has not yet begun filming, a trailer for the Bridgerton spinoff has yet to be released by Netflix at this time and one is not expected to be released until closer to the show’s release on Netflix.
