The title of Bridgerton‘s first episode of season three wasn’t the only regency romance news to drop during Netflix’s TUDUM 2022. Right after Lady Whistledown’s (Nicola Coughlan) little message, fans were gifted an exclusive first look by Golda Rosheuvel and Adjoa Andoh at the upcoming series Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. While the world is based loosely on the novels by Julia Quinn, this prequel series is heading into unknown territory.

The exclusive clip gives us our first look at India Amarteifio‘s younger Queen Charlotte. And if you thought the sass was something the Queen learned after her royal marriage, you thought wrong. In just a few short minutes, Amarteifio shows us exactly how sassy the Queen can be as she attempts to scale a garden wall to escape meeting the King. Unfortunately – or fortunately, depending on how you look at it – her helper happens to be the beast of a man himself, King George (Corey Mylchreest).

Queen Charlotte: A Birdgerton Story will focus on her love story with King George and the societal shift we see taking place during Bridgerton. Within Shonda Rhimes‘ series, she has diversified the cast and stories, and that doesn’t stop with the casting. During both season one and two, we see how these changes are shown in the world. And this spark starts with the King and Queen. We are sure the series will be just as swoon-worthy, drama-filled and heartwrenching as its predecessor.

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story will hit Netflix in 2023. We hope to have an exact date to share in the upcoming weeks, but 2023 is still close enough to keep us excited. We’ve shared the exclusive clip below for your enjoyment. If you haven’t watched Bridgerton  – do so now! Are you excited about the prequel series?
