Bridgerton on Netflix

Netflix have announced Bridgerton is officially their biggest series ever.

A record 82 million households around the world chose to watch the show in its first 28 days.

It also hit number one in 83 countries including the US, UK, Ireland, Brazil, France, India and South Africa.

In addition to this, the Bridgerton books have made it into The New York Times best seller lists for the first time.

This comes 18 years after they were first published.

The show celebrated the news with a video collage of Bridgerton themed TikTok creations.

'Felicitations buzzy Ton! Thanks to your gracious watching efforts, Bridgerton is now the biggest series ever on Netflix'

What's the show all about?

Here's the official synopsis for the Netflix/ Shondaland series:

Set in the early 1800s, Bridgerton follows the story of Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family.

Her whole world changes as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market.

Nicola Coughlan

She dreams of following in her parent’s footsteps by finding a match sparked by true love.

But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) casts aspersions on Daphne.

Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page).

Bridgerton

He's a committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas.

Despite proclaiming that they have nothing to offer one another, their attraction is undeniable.

They soon find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.

Nicola Coughlan

Irish actress Nicola Coughlan plays Penelope Featherington, who's a quiet, innocent girl in her first year debuting.

She's best friends with Daphne's sister Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie), and together, they're quite clever and quick witted.
