‘Bridgeton’ becomes Netflix’s most streamlined original series

The hit show “Bridgeton” is officially the most watched Netflix original series in the company’s history.

Deadline reported on Wednesday that the show is based on a book of the same name by Julia Quinn, which surpassed the streaming service’s own illuminating estimates by grossing 82 million views in its first season.

Bridgerton The Regency portrays upper-class life in England, giving a subversive look with color-blind casting and a story that focuses a lot on women’s lives.

The series was released on Netflix on December 25 and was described by GQ Magazine as a combination of “Gossip Girl” and “Doughton Abbey”.

“I think the show really provides an incredible getaway for viewers at a time where it’s really needed,” director Chris Van Dusen said.

“‘Bridgeton’ is a lively, lively, steamy regency love story; it’s about romance, love and joy; I think all those things are really universal themes that people are responding to.”

Netflix Tweeted out A message of appreciation from fans of the show on Wednesday, thanking them for making “Bridgeton” a hit.

Regu-Jean Page, who plays The Duke of Hastings, also posted a picture with the entire cast and crew thanking fans for their love and support.

Last week Netflix announced that Bridgerton would return for a second season, and focus on the older Bridgerton child, Anthony, portrayed by Jonathan Bailey.

It is unclear how many actors will return for a season of the show.
