Netflix’ new show Bridgerton has taken the world by storm! In less than a month it has become one of the most streamed shows ever on Netflix and it already has us obsessing about a potential second season of Bridgerton.

If you have watched Bridgerton (two or three times) already and are looking for something to fill the hole in your life, here are 7 shows to watch if you loved Bridgerton.

Shows To Watch If You Loved Bridgerton

The Great

If you enjoyed a bit of a history lesson, lush clothes and a gripping storyline The Great should be your next watch after Bridgerton.

Described as “a genre-bending, anti-historical ride through 18th-century Russia following the wildly comedic rise of Catherine the Nothing to Catherine the Great“, it stars Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult.

Keep an eye on this buzzy new show. Season 1 aired in 2020 to critical acclaim and season 2 is already in development.

The Great is currently airing on Channel 4 with episodes available on the All 4 Player.

The Crown

If English drama is your thing, you need to jump on The Crown train.

The Crown follows the 6 decade reign of the current Queen of England, Elizabeth II. As the show deals with a lot of IRL events it’s quite addictive.

All 4 seasons of The Crown are available on Netflix with season 5 currently in production.

Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey walked so Bridgerton could run!

Robert Crawley risks losing the family estate after his heirs die in the Titanic. Soon, the Crawleys are introduced to Matthew, the next heir in line, who resists the aristocratic way of life.

Downton Abbey is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Gossip Girl

If you enjoyed trying to guess the identity of Lady Whistledown you’ll love watching Gossip Girl.

There are 7 seasons of scandal and gossip to make your way through AND the Gossip Girl reboot is coming in 2021!

Gossip Girl is currently streaming on Netflix.

Sweet Magnolias

Need your fix of a romantic and uplifting TV show to fill the Bridgerton shaped hole in your life? Give another Netflix show, Sweet Magnolias, a try.

Lifelong friends lift each other up as they juggle relationships, family and careers in the small Southern town of Serenity.
