Bridgerton

bridgerton topic page

The period romance drama Bridgerton is based on novels by Julia Quinn and follows the aristocratic Bridgerton siblings —Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory, and Hyacinth. Set in Regency London, the first season centers around oldest daughter Daphne Bridgerton as she plots with her brother Anthony's friend Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, to secure a suitable marriage. 

However, Daphne ends up falling in love with Simon, despite it being made known that he has no intentions of having children. The series is narrated by the town gossip Lady Whistledown, who is narrated by Julie Andrews. Unlike the series of books on which it is based, Bridgerton is set in a racially integrated society, where people of color are members of the ton, including Queen Charlotte. 

Anthony Bridgerton's love life will be the main focus of Bridgerton Season 2.
