Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, a spin-off series based on the main show, will delve deeper into the character we’ve come to know and love. Here’s a comprehensive look at the Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story series, which will premiere on Netflix in 2023. The new Bridgerton spin-off will be a limited series (meaning it will only be one season long) to the main Bridgerton series, which has been a smash hit for Netflix. The series is still one of the most-watched (according to announced statistics) Netflix Original shows as of September 2021. This new spin-off’s mothership show has been renewed for a fourth season.
The show will go back in time to show how Queen Charlotte became the iconic character in the mothership series. More Bridgerton projects are in the works, in addition to Queen Charlotte, thanks to an expanded deal with Netflix. Virtual reality experiences, a video game, and other in-person events have been teased in addition to the main series and this new spin-off.
