Netflix is bringing a whole load of glamour, scandal and romance to our screens on Christimas Day, if the new Bridgerton trailer is anything to go by.
Viewers only have weeks to go before the highly-anticipated period drama drops on the streaming platform and it looks like there’s going to be plenty of twists and turns in the vibrant Regency-based series.
The trailer introduces us to Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and her family as they join the rest of London’s aristocrats for the beginning of the social season.
The show’s dazzling take on 19th-century London highlights all the glitz and glam of the numerous balls and outings as Daphne competes with other women trying to find a marriage match.
However, things don’t appear to go to plan as Daphne is seen saying that the mysterious Lady Whistledown has declared her ‘eligible’.
Yep, as if trying to find a life partner wasn’t enough, the entire ‘ton’ has to deal with all the secrets being revealed by the gossip columnist in her scandalous society papers.
It seems a chance encounter with Simon Basset, The Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean page) might change Daphne’s luck as he is seen proposing that they fake a romance to help solve both of their issues.
Such a shame they don’t actually appear to get along!
Mix all this with the narration of Lady Whistledown’s comments by the legend that is Dame Julie Andrews and we’re already obsessed.
The latest ‘Shondaland’ production is a romantic period drama adapted from the hit books by Julia Quinn, and it looks like Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes is onto another winner.
We don’t know about you Dear Reader, but this is giving us yet another reason to get excited for Christmas morning.
Bridgerton is available to stream on Netflix from Christmas Day, December 25.
