Bridgerton - Queen Charlotte

Bridgerton: Queen Charlotte origin story spin-off confirmed by Netflix

All hail the Queen!

| Updated:

News from the ‘Ton! Netflix has confirmed Bridgerton’s world will be expanding – with the fabulous origin story of Queen Charlotte.

Golda Rosheuvel’s character is a fan fave, with her Royal presence setting the who’s who standard of the London elite. 

But now we’ll discover her tangled backstory, which led to her marriage to her beloved King George III.

Making the announcement of the one-off series, Netflix said: “All Hail The Queen!

“Thrilled to announce we’re expanding the Bridgerton universe with a limited series that will tell Queen Charlotte’s origin story.

“The series will also feature young Violet Bridgerton and young Lady Danbury.”

However, don’t expect too much of a happy ending – as despite their love, the King’s memory is failing him by Bridgerton season one’s events. 

He is only seen in one heartbreaking scene with Queen Charlotte, during which he forgets the death of their daughter, Amelia, and blames her.

We currently don’t know the spin-off’s title or release date… but we’re ready and waiting for announcements.
