About the show
Here's a synopsis of the popular 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.
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).
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.
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.
