What is Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story about?
Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is a limited-run historical romance drama series starring India Amarteifio in the central role of Queen Charlotte. It is a prequel spin-off to the 2020 regency-era, alternate-history romance, Bridgerton.
Queen Charlotte follows two plotlines while focusing on young Queen Charlotte’s rise to prominence and power. Tom Vercia directed all the episodes of the 2023 series, with Corey Mylchreest starring alongside Amarteifio in the lead role. The cast also includes Michelle Fairley, Arsema Thomas, Sam Clemmett, Freddie Dennis, and Hugh Sachs.
What are currently the Top 10 English-language series on Netflix?
Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story reigns on the Number #1 stop this week, with 148.28 million hours watched between the 1st of May to the 7th. The list is currently followed by shows like Sweet Tooth: Season 2, Firefly Lane, The Diplomat, and The Night Agent in terms of the number of hours viewed.
Which 2023 English-language Netflix series had the highest viewership numbers?
The first-week numbers of Queen Charlotte are just a little lower than the opening viewership numbers of the Netflix chartbusters from 2023. The action thriller The Night Agent logged 168 million hours viewed, whereas the second season of Ginny & Georgia logged about 180 million hours. They were followed by the third season of the American action-adventure mystery Outer Banks with 154 million hours.
Nevertheless, Queen Charlotte’s success is applaud-worthy since it manages to achieve its position with just six episodes. The viewers are certainly over the moon about this lustful regency-era romance, and good for them, Season 3 has already finished production for another entertaining binge.
