‘Bridgerton’ trailer: Netflix adapts Julia Quinn’s novels in new period drama series

A new trailer has been released for Netflix’s Bridgerton.

Based on the bestselling novels by Julia Quinn, the upcoming historical romance series follows eight close-knit siblings as they look for love and happiness in Regency London high society.

Bridgerton is set in early 1800s England and comes from the makers of Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy.

All eight episodes will premiere exclusively on Netflix around the world on Friday 25th December.

Watch the brand new full-length trailer:


Bridgerton is described as “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.”

The cast includes Adjoa Andoh (Doctor Who), Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch), Claudia Jessie (Line of Duty), Polly Walker (Rome), Nicola Coughlan (Derry Girls), Sabrina Bartlett (Game of Thrones), Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter), and Ben Miller (Death in Paradise), with the voice of Dame Julie Andrews.

The official synopsis reads: “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.”

Julia Quinn has written eight books in the Bridgerton series, published between 2000 and 2013, and her novels have been translated into 29 different languages.

Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton novels are available on Amazon.
