Debuting on December 25, 2020 and (loosely) based on the book series by Julia Quinn, Bridgerton was developed as a series by Chris Van Dusen. It was Shonda Rhimes' ShondaLand Television Productions first scripted show for Netflix. Winning two Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards as well as nominations at the Primetime Emmy Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Satellite Awards and NAACP Image Awards.

The first two season were popular though I personally didn't think they were all that great, however I found the Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story mini-series to be fantastic and this latest [3rd] season of the NETFLIX series to be very compelling. In fact I was so very excited for part two of this season, so much so that I had to differ watching the newest episodes of The Boys until I had finished wink

Anyone else have an opinion?
