The Queen Charlotte limited series will centre on the rise and love life of a young Charlotte, according to deadline news.

The programme will also feature a young Violet Bridgerton and a young Lady Danbury.

A tweet from Netflix said: “All Hail The Queen.

“Thrilled to announce we’re expanding the Bridgerton universe with a limited series that will tell Queen Charlotte’s origin story — the series will also feature young Violet Bridgerton and young Lady Danbury.”

Shonda Rhimes will write the series and serve as executive producer alongside Tom Verica and Betsy Beers.

Rhimes said: “As we continue to expand the world of Bridgerton, we now have the opportunity to devote even more of the Shondaland fold to the Bridgerton-verse.”

The title and release date have not yet been revealed.

Bridgerton, which is produced by Rhimes’ Shondaland, has been a ratings hit for Netflix.

The company revealed in January that the raunchy period drama, which is filmed in the UK, was its biggest ever original series after it was viewed by a record 82 million households in 28 days.

It has previously been announced that Rege-Jean Page will not return for the second season of the drama.
