‘Bridgerton’ Spinoff Finds Its Young Queen Charlotte
The Shonda Rhimes-penned prequel has cast India Amarteifio as the young monarch along with a host of other roles.
Netflix’s Bridgerton spinoff focused on the younger Queen Charlotte has filled out its cast — including the role of the young monarch.
India Amarteifio (Line of Duty) will play the younger version of Charlotte in the eight-episode series, which Bridgerton executive producer Shonda Rhimes is writing. The show, ordered to series last year, will tell the story of how the young queen’s marriage to King George sparked both a great love story and a societal shift that led to the world seen in the parent series.
The casting of the spinoff comes on the heels of Bridgerton’s second-season premiere March 25, which set a Netflix English-language series record for viewing time on its opening weekend.
