Shonda Rhimes drama “Bridgerton”, which is confirmed by Netflix for at least another two seasons, will have a spin-off series that will follow the rise of a young Queen Charlotte. The unnamed limited series will serve as a prequel to “Bridgerton” and tell the story of Queen Charlotte’s love life and rise to power. The spinoff will also feature younger versions of Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury. Shonda Rhimes will write the series and executive produce along with Betsy Beers and Tom Verica

“Many viewers had never known the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I’m thrilled this new series will further expand her story and the world of Bridgerton,” said Netflix head of global TV Bela Bajaria. “Shonda and her team are thoughtfully building out the Bridgerton universe so they can keep delivering for the fans with the same quality and style they love. And by planning and prepping all the upcoming seasons now, we also hope to keep up a pace that will keep even the most insatiable viewers totally fulfilled.”
