'Bridgerton' Season 1 Spoilers: Which couple will be at the center of the scandalous tale from Lady Whistledown?
Season 1 will have eight episodes that will be set in Regency London’s high society as the Bridgerton siblings try to navigate their way around a marriage market
Netflix's upcoming romantic drama series 'Bridgerton' premieres with its first season on December 25, 2020. The series is an adaptation from the Bridgerton historic romance novel series authored by Julia Quinn and is set to follow the eight tight-knit Bridgerton siblings in the 1800s as they navigate London's high society. With many fans of the novels, you may be wondering what the first season of the series will showcase with respect to the books.
The first season of the 'Bridgerton' is based on the first book of the series titled 'The Duke and I' and it will follow the eldest of the Bridgerton siblings — Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), and the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) who is not only Daphne's older brother Anthony Bridgerton's (Jonathan Bailey) best friend but also a bachelor who doesn't have a respectable reputation.
The trailer sees Daphne attend balls along with other highly marked societal events, but according to the faceless Lady Whistledown, she is ineligible. In order to prove Lady Whistledown wrong, Daphne and Simon spark up a false romance. What's in it for Simon? Well, he's trying his best to escape the mothers who want him to marry their daughters all over town. Predictably, even though this starts as a lie, it turns out that the duo have a lot in common, and a lot more chemistry than they had initially planned on. As it goes, "All is fair in love and war."
'Bridgerton' Season 1 will have eight episodes that will be set in Regency London’s high society as the Bridgerton siblings try to navigate their way around a marriage market that demands yet scrutinizes their best. The eight books are one for each sibling. This one will follow Daphne and we're hoping the other seasons will follow as did the novels. With love in the air along with a bit of scandal, 'Bridgerton' will give you a 'Gossip Girl' meets 'Desperate Housewives' meets 'Downtown Abbey' vibe, but it's surely something that you shouldn't miss, especially if you're a fan of the novels.
