Season 2 of Bridgerton: Is Bridgerton based on a book series?
Since its debut on Netflix in 2021, BRIDGERTON has swept the world by storm – but is the show based on books, and if so, how many are there?
During the Regency time, Bridgerton follows young women who want to catch their husbands. The show follows two families, the Bridgertons and the Featheringtons, as they compete for London’s batchelors. Is the popular Netflix series, however, based on a book series, and if so, how many books are there?
Bridgerton is based on a book series, so viewers of the show will be able to learn even more about the plot.
Julia Quinn, a pen name for American writer Julie Pottinger, wrote her debut book, The Duke and I, in 2000.
Julia published three earlier series of novels before starting the Bridgerton series, all of them are historical romances.
Julia’s adventures followed the Lyndon sisters in a sequence of two volumes after the Splendid trilogy.
This trilogy isn’t quite a trilogy because each narrative is about people who are connected in different ways, rather than a single group.
This trilogy is completed by a story that appears in the anthology series Where’s My Hero?
Victoria and Eleanor Lyndon, daughters of a vicar in the early nineteenth century, are followed by the Lyndon sisters.
Despite the fact that they both marry aristocrats over the course of the books, their paths to true love are extremely different.
Julia went on to write Agents of the Crown, a two-book series.
The Agents of the Crown novels are set in 1814-15 England and follow two former spies, albeit they are presented in epistolary form, which means the story is told through letters.
These stories, like Bridgerton, are set in the early nineteenth century, with Bridgerton being slightly later, but all around the same time when young women had to guarantee their fortunes, and in some cases the fortunes of their families, through marriage.
The Bridgerton series consists of nine books, with the first two published in 2000: The Duke and I and The Viscount Who Loved Me.
Following that, Julie wrote An Offer From a Gentleman in 2001 and Romancing Mister Bridgerton in 2002, followed by To Sir Phillip, With Love in 2003.
Julie wrote “Brinkwire Summary News” in 2004.
