Will 'Queen Charlotte' Reign Over Netflix for a Second Season?
Minor spoilers ahead.
If you're reading this story sniffling, wiping away tears, my guess is that you've just binged all of Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. The prequel to Netflix's famous Julia Quinn adaptation unveils the origins of the titular queen as she marries King George III and adjusts to her new life as the queen of England, far from her home country of Germany, while learning of her husband's mental illness, clashing with his mother, and missing her own family. As its sixth episode draws to an emotional close, viewers may be wondering if there's more to come from the Queen Charlotte story. Here's what we know.
Has Queen Charlotte been renewed for season 2?
There's no word from Netflix yet, but a renewal would be unlikely considering the six-episode Queen Charlotte has been touted as a miniseries. But that said, other streamers have renewed limited series before.
This isn't the last we'll see of the Bridgerton universe, though. The third season is in the works and it has already been renewed for a fourth.
What would a possible season 2 be about?
The sixth episode tied everything up nicely, but there could be other possible threads to pursue if Executive Producer Shonda Rhimes and her crew decided to keep Queen Charlotte going.
Starting with our main couple, we could see more of the young Charlotte (India Amarteifio) and George III's (Corey Mylchreest) love story, now that she's pregnant with their second child and has earned the trust of his mother, Princess Augusta (Michelle Fairley). We could also watch Charlotte steadfastly remain by her husband's side, supporting him as he rules while living with mental illness. The “present day” Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel) might welcome her and George's grandchild as their newly married son Edward and his wife are expecting.
As for her friends, Violet Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell) expressed to Lady Agatha Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) that she's ready to tend her garden once again, meaning to open herself up to love for the first time after her husband's death. (She's also getting over the revelation that Lady Danbury had a tryst with her father.) The Queen Charlotte finale showed the meeting of young Violet (Connie Jenkins-Greig) and Agatha (Arsema Thomas), but another season might explore the origins of their friendship even further. It could even show an empowered young Agatha embracing single life and her independence after shutting down Adolphus' (Tunji Kasim) marriage proposal.
We'd just have to wait and see what Netflix decides.
