Netflix adapted the show from a series of historical romance novels Bridgerton by author Julia Quinn. In addition, the drama follows members of the Bridgerton family, as they navigate London’s high society in the 1800s.
But it was Page and Dyneor’s depiction of Duke and Duchess’s agitated relationship that catapult them to fame. While these made the people smile with happiness, the lewd sex scenes raised a few eyebrows.

Praise and Broken records!

The director of the series is praised as well. Shonda Rhimes has been praised for her colour-blind casting. Shonda has put coloured actors in the type of historical roles that were originally played by white people.
The show was designed for today’s millennials Gen Z audiences and has been described as a Regency-era Gossip Girl.
Netflix measures a view as any piece of content watched for at least two minutes.

Additionally, Netflix has added that Bridgerton had been in the top ten of every country it runs in except in Japan. Moreover, because of this, it drove the books it is based on into NewYork Times Bestseller. The series came in the list for the very first time.
