Netflix Reveals Premiere Date For Regency Set ‘Bridgerton’ From Shonda Rhimes

Daphne and Simon dance around each other in the first look teaser for the upcoming Netflix series, Bridgerton.

The new Regency-set series, from Shonda Rhimes, is inspired by Julia Quinn’s best-selling novels, and features Julie Andrews as the narrator, Lady Whistledown.

Bridgerton centers on Daphne (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 will premiere on Netflix on Christmas Day, December 25.
