The Bridgertons takes viewers back to the 19th century and tells the story of the Bridgerton royal family, with four daughters and four sons among its heirs. The first season focuses on one of the daughters named Daphne. The story is about the attempts to marry the girl off, which fail for a number of reasons, including the rumors spread by the yellow press, however, not without merit.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
As a historical series, the show takes a lot of liberties and some of the characters in the story of Victorian England are dark-skinned. Queen Charlotte is one of them, and viewers liked her more than the other characters. According to representatives of Netflix, viewers’ interest in this figure and served as the reason for developing a solo project about the queen, whose release date is expected in 2022.
Being a character from a series that has already come out, there is every reason to believe that the role of Queen Charlotte will once again be played by Golda Rochavel in the upcoming series. According to rumors, the novelty may affect the young years of the woman, which will serve as a reason to take on the role of a younger actress. In the story, Queen Charlotte was white, but Netflix’s free-wheeling adaptation introduced the character as a black man.
This angered many, but Golda’s acting still played a role, and viewers were reconciled to such an interpretation. It is known that along with Queen Charlotte in the new series will show and Lady Danbury, it is expected that she will be the second key character in the upcoming story. The Queen Charlotte series is expected to be released in 2022.
