Tension Begins as Netflix Drops Spinoff Trailer of ‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story’

March 28, 2023

Sharing is caring!

Premiering this May, fans see drama building on the horizon.

We’ve all seen how Queen Charlotte pulled strings and played a vital role in the first two seasons of the Bridgerton series. This time, the tables turn as we get to see the prequel of the series—bringing us all back to her youth and her courtship with King George.

To be released on May 4 on Netflix, fans are much hyped in digging deeper into the story of King George III, in his charismatic youth and his captivating romance with the young Charlotte, before he succumbed to mental illness, as depicted in the previous seasons of Bridgerton.

Here’s the Tea: What We Know So Far About the Bridgerton Spinoff

As shown in the recently released trailer for the installment of the regency-era drama series, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story brings fans to an alternate universe where 19th-century Britain embraced diversity and intermarriage. Queen Charlotte is depicted as having been very much resentful of her arranged marriage to the country’s most illegible and powerful man. But as the story turns out, she eventually begins to develop feelings for him after a chance meeting in the palace’s garden maze.

But as every Bridgerton story unfolds, we know that there’s more to love than meets the eye. In the first few seconds of the trailer, we get to hear India Amarteifio, who’s playing the role of Charlotte, say, “There’s a reason why they wanted me.”—a subtle reminder that there are far worse reasons and far worse fates than marrying the King of England, as portrayed by Corey Mylchreest.

Also featured in the story is the younger version of the fan-favorite, Lady Agatha Danbury, portrayed by Adjoa Andoh, who is now played by Arsema Thomas. Aside from their remarkable resemblance, the younger counterpart is both as astute and sympathetic as the older version. In her words, she reminds the young Charlotte to be careful. “You are the first of your kind. You must secure your position.”

Despite the tension and conspiracies going on, guess we can all agree that the chemistry between the young Charlotte and George is undeniable, as first seen in the teaser released a year ago. Previously, the two obviously did not start on the right footing, but as George implored Charlotte, the latter seemed to get swayed by his intentions. “I realize you have no reason to like me. But if you give me one evening of your time, I’ll make you hate me a little bit less.”

When Can I Watch Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story on Netflix?

Produced by Netflix and Shonda Rhimes’s Shondaland, the creative who gave us Meredith Grey, Olivia Pope, and Annalise Keating, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story will be out on May 4 on Netflix.

As the synopsis reads: “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.”

Aside from India Amarteifio and Corey Mylchreest, Golda Rosheuvel, Adjoa Andoh, and Ruth Gemmel are reprising their roles for this series. The cast is completed by Michelle Fairley, Sam Clemmett, Freddie Dennis, Richard Cunningham, Tunji Kasim, Rob Maloney, Cyril Nri, and Hugh Sachs.  

Don’t miss this opportunity to get to know better the social construct of the ton and get the latest tea from the characters. Stay tuned!
