‘Bridgerton’ Gets Full Trailer, Premiering Christmas Day On Netflix
Netflix has released the full trailer for ‘Bridgerton‘, the first series from Shonda Rhimes’s Shondaland (‘Scandal’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’) for the streaming service, which lands Christmas Day.
rom Shondaland and Creator Chris Van Dusen (‘Scandal’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’), ‘Bridgerton’ follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor – ‘Younger’, ‘Waterloo Road’), 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 unrivalled. 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 – ‘For The People’, ‘Waterloo Road’), 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.

Van Dusen exec produces alongside Shondaland’s Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers.
WARNING – Whilst this is a period drama, and you might think “Ooh, that’ll be nice to watch with the family on Christmas Day!” Maybe, don’t do that… There are apparently a number of scenes which are rather more “adult” in nature than you might be comfortable with watching with your parents or grandparents!
‘Bridgerton‘ Season 1 will premiere Christmas Day 2020 (25th December 2020) on Netflix UK and worldwide. You can set yourself a reminder on Netflix by clicking here.
