Bridgerton season 3

Bridgerton is coming back for seasons 3 and 4.

Bela Bejaria, Netflix’s vice president of global TV, said in a press release that the company is “planning to be in the Bridgerton business for a long time to come,” which should not be surprising since the first season of the sexy Regency romance reportedly became the streamer’s biggest original series ever.

Confirmation about Page not being a part of Bridgerton season 2 came from the show’s official Instagram account.

Bridgerton, the Regency-era romance from Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and Scandal producer Shonda Rhimes, has beaten Henry Cavill’s The Witcher to become Netflix’s biggest show.

According to the streamer, a record 82 million households watched the series in its first 28 days, handily beating The Witcher‘s 76 million views during its own first 28 days. And while the show is clearly a big deal, Netflix’s definition of a “view” is somewhat controversial and might paint an inaccurate picture about how many people actually watched the show.

After spending around 15 years churning out hit after hit for ABC, prolific producer Shonda Rhimes (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder) shocked Hollywood by signing a deal in 2017 in which she would produce shows for Netflix.

Scandal (and the creator of Scandal) has come to Regency England. Shonda Rhimes’ first major original series for Netflix has finally arrived, with a glitzy, racially diverse trailer that puts Rhimes’ signature brand of soap to the period drama. Bridgerton is based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, and from the trailer, looks like a Gossip Girl threw on a corset.
