We officially have a great new series to get excited about! Brigerton is coming to Netflix on Christmas Day and good God does it look good!
The series has some serious star power in front of and behind the camera. Firstly, it’s from Shonaland aka Shonda Rhimes who is behind some shows you might have heard of…like Greys Anatomy, Private Practice, Sandal, How To Get Away With Murder…to name but a few.
And secondly, the big casting news for Ireland is that Derry Girls actress , Nicola Coughlan, will star as Penelope Featherington.
A Bit About Bridgerton
From Shondaland and Creator Chris Van Dusen, Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market. Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled. But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown casts aspersions on Daphne. Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas. Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.
Bridgerton is a romantic, scandalous, and quick-witted series that celebrates the timelessness of enduring friendships, families finding their way, and the search for a love that conquers all.
