Plot summary

What is Bridgerton TV series plot?

Here is a short review of "Bridgerton" TV series plot summary.

The drama takes place in 19th century Britain. It centers on the aristocratic Bridgerton family. The widow Violet (Ruth Gemmell), Dowager Viscountess Bridgerton is mother to eight children: her four sons, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), Benedict, Colin, and Gregory; and her four daughters, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, and Hyacinth. Also featured are their gaudy neighbors, the Featheringtons: Portia (Polly Walker), Lady Featherington; her husband the Baron; and their three daughters, Philippa (Harriet Cains), Prudence and Penelope; as well as their mysterious cousin Marina Thompson (Ruby Barker). Each episode includes narration by actress Julie Andrews, who voices the anonymous and ever-scandalous newsletter columnist known as Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews). As eldest daughter Daphne Bridgerton enters her first season with Queen Charlotte's favor, she meets Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings (Richard Pepple) and best friend of her eldest brother, Anthony. Despite being encouraged by his mentor, Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh), the Duke is determined not to marry and plots with Daphne to secure his bachelordom and her a suitable marriage.
Unlike the series of novels, Bridgerton is set in an alternate history with a racially integrated Regency era London where people of color are members of the ton, some with titles granted by the sovereign. Creator Chris Van Dusen was inspired by historical debate over Queen Charlotte's possible African ancestry "...to base the show in an alternative history in which Queen Charlotte's mixed race heritage was not only well-established but was transformative for Black people and other people of color in England." Van Dusen says the series is not "color-blind" because "that would imply that color and race were never considered when color and race are part of the show."
