Netflix’s blockbuster production, starring Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page, set a record for an audience. Within 28 days of the premiere of “Bridgertons”, there were 82 million viewers.
Thus the cult of “The Witcher” (with “only” 76 million viewers in four weeks) fell to the honorable first place in the ranking of the most popular series on the platform. Since the first day after the premiere, “Bridgertons” has generated interest among users, and assumptions about their viewership have exceeded the wildest expectations not only from Netflix itself, but from the entire team that created it.
In the first 28 days after the premiere of “Bridgertons”, more than 80 million users viewed it. Production ranked first in 83 countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Brazil, France, and South Africa, and made it in the top ten in every country (excluding Japan). A few days ago, Netflix announced that work on the second season will begin in March of this year, which will likely appear on the platform in 2022.
The show’s popularity has extended to other aspects as well. Three of Julia Quinn’s Bridgertons books debuted on the New York Times bestseller list, and The Duke and I, on which the story of the first season is based, ranked first twenty years after its release. Moreover, according to the Daily Mail, the production with the Regency Era in the background made viewers want to recreate it in their homes. This is confirmed by the volume of searches on eBay, with antique furniture, wisteria and even corsets selling at an astonishing rate.
