The spin-off series will focus on the life of the Queen, played by Golda Rosheuvel, in the streaming giant’s hit series ‘Bridgerton’.  

The film synopsis reads, as per Variety, “Centered on Queen Charlotte’s rise to prominence and power, this ‘Bridgerton’-verse prequel tells the story of how the young Queen’s marriage to King George sparked both a great love story and a societal shift, creating the world of the Ton inherited by the characters in ‘Bridgerton.’”

‘James Bond’ producer Barbara Broccoli loves Idris Elba, but ‘not everybody wants to do that’

The limited series will also feature the younger version of Lady Danbury (played by Adjoa Andoh) and Violet Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell).

Shonda Rhimes will executive produce the limited series with Betsy Beers and Tom Verica serving as executive producers. 

Last year in May, the series on the gossipy monarch was announced.

“Many viewers had never known the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I’m thrilled this new series will further expand her story and the world of Bridgerton,” Netflix’s Head of Global TV Bela Bajaria said in a statement at the time, via People.
