The first season of the period drama series follows the scandal-filled story of Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page).
Taking place in the early part of the 19th century, the books follow the eight siblings in the Bridgerton family, four boys and four girls, as they wade into romance.
This first season’s primary story is of Daphne the eldest Bridgerton daughter.
Daphne Bridgerton is determined to marry for love, rather than status and lands the hottest man in the cast Simon.
The music in Bridgerton also captivated audiences who said it was modernized with what seemed to be versions of current pop songs in the background.
Classical covers of modern-day pop songs by artists like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, and Billie Eilish play throughout the show.
Another factor that drew fans was the diverse cast with conspiracy theories that Queen Charlotte really was Britain’s first mixed-race royal.
