At last, our earliest glimpses of a new era: Shonda Rhimes is at Netflix! In the full trailer for Bridgerton (which premieres Christmas Day), TV’s greatest mind brings a bit of Grey‘s intrigue to the Georgian era. Adapted from Julia Quinn’s nine-book romance series, which began with The Duke and I in 2000, the series sees the upper crust of London society rocked by an anonymous column produced by the well-informed and gossip-minded Lady Whistledown.
The newest trailer offers more insight into Rhimes’s take on Regency England—and it’s much steamier than your run-of-the-mill costume drama, complete with bodice-ripping orgies, faked romances, and an impatient queen (Golda Rosheuvel) hungry for drama.
The first trailer, released in November, also hinted at intrigue: “Do not tell me that is another scandal sheet?” a mother questions dismissively. “This one is different,” her daughter insists with urgency. “This one lists subjects by name!” The stakes officially raised, we get a glance at the glittery, brightly-hued world of Bridgerton‘s lords and ladies, filled, no doubt, with tortured romances and longing. The series will star Younger‘s Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page of For the People and 2016’s Roots. Dynevor plays the oldest daughter of a tony family eager to marry her off. Page is a newly minted duke with no interest in settling down.
