Based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, BRIDGERTON, is set in the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society.  From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground.  At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family. Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.

QUOTE FROM CREATOR CHRIS VAN DUSEN:

“We could not have found a more gifted group of actors to bring Bridgerton to life.  When creating this series, the goal was to turn a very traditional genre on its head and make something fresh, smart, sexy and fun. That’s exactly what this cast embodies and I’m ridiculously excited to see them inhabit these characters and captivate viewers in their own incredibly brilliant ways.”

CAST:

 Phoebe Dynevor bridgerton

PHOEBE DYNEVOR (Younger, Dickensian) will play “DAPHNE BRIDGERTON.”

The picture-perfect young debutante has been waiting her entire life to make her grand debut on the marriage mart.  Poised to be the season of 1813’s forthcoming Incomparable, Daphne’s set to take the town by storm – but not everything goes exactly as planned for this diamond of the first water, especially after she meets a certain Duke.

Rege-Jean Page bridgerton

REGÉ-JEAN PAGE (For The People, Roots) will play “SIMON BASSET.”

Having newly returned to London, the Duke of Hastings finds himself the primary topic of conversation amongst marriage-minded misses and ambitious mamas alike.  Yet, for reasons of his own, our devastating Duke has zero interest in his title, society, or taking a wife.

Golda Rosheuvel bridgerton

GOLDA ROSHEUVEL (Silent Witness, Lady MacBeth) will play “QUEEN CHARLOTTE.”

The veritable tastemaker of London society, Queen Charlotte finds herself living for the sordid gossip that Lady Whistledown prints, though she’d swear she’s above such mundane musings.  It’s only when the ton’s newest gossip writer takes aim at the palace that Queen Charlotte knows she must do something about it.

Jonathan Bailey (by Leigh Kelly) bridgerton

JONATHAN BAILEY (W1A, Broadchurch) will play “ANTHONY BRIDGERTON.”

The quintessential English nobleman, Anthony is the eldest Bridgerton sibling and dutiful head of the family since assuming his late father’s title of Viscount.  Endlessly handsome, charming and rich, he’s quite the catch on this year’s marriage mart. But if he has any hope of fulfilling his oftentimes overwhelming duty of marrying and producing an heir, Anthony must first learn to temper his pursuit of pleasure.

Luke Newton bridgerton

LUKE NEWTON (The Lodge, The Cut) will play “COLIN BRIDGERTON.”

The dashing Colin Bridgerton is used to disarming his fellow society members with good-natured jokes, though a serious sense of adventure lurks behind those swoon-worthy eyes.  Colin takes a liking to the newest young lady in town — but it’s this infatuation that winds up giving him more than he may have bargained for.

Claudia Jessie bridgerton

CLAUDIA JESSIE (Vanity Fair, Doctor Who) will play “ELOISE BRIDGERTON.”

Whip-smart, brazen and rebellious, Eloise Bridgerton is definitely not here for turning into just another young simpering and mincing debutante.  She believes she’s destined for something much greater, though she’s quite rapidly approaching marriageable age.

Nicola Coughlan bridgerton

NICOLA COUGHLAN (Derry Girls, Harlots) will play “PENELOPE FEATHERINGTON.”

A vastly intelligent girl with a sharp wit and kind heart, Penelope would prefer to quietly sway near the perimeter of any ballroom rather than take center stage.  She’s been born into a family who will never truly understand her–as if dealing with the cutthroat, mean girls of 1813 Regency London weren’t enough.

Ruby Barker bridgerton

RUBY BARKER (Wolfblood, Doctors) will play “MARINA THOMPSON.”

Having been sent from the country to live with her cousins, the Featheringtons, Marina never imagined being a part of London society.  Yet the arrival of this resourceful young lady seems to make more than just a splash in our glittering, exclusive world.

Sabrina Bartlett bridgerton

SABRINA BARTLETT (Victoria, Knightfall) will play “SIENA ROSSO.”

The beautiful, captivating, and enterprising opera singer who’s having a secret affair with a prominent lord.  Fun and a bit impetuous, Siena secretly longs to be a part of our town’s world.

Ruth Gemmell bridgerton

RUTH GEMMELL  (Deep State, Penny Dreadful) will play “LADY VIOLET BRIDGERTON.”

All warmth, wisdom and love, the Bridgerton matriarch manages to treat everyone with unmatched kindness and respect.  But don’t mistake her compassion for weakness – as she’s an impressive match for anyone who dares comes close to interfering with her family.  She’d like nothing more than for her children to marry – not for convenience or opportunity, but for love.

adjoah andoh bridgerton

ADJOA ANDOH (Thunderbirds Are A Go) will play “LADY DANBURY.”

The legendary, acerbic, lioness of a dowager who runs this town.  Unconcerned with the rules of polite society, Lady Danbury is a straight shooter – both formidable and a little scary.  And while her judgments may be sharp, they’re always accurate. She is a friend of Simon’s late mother, having shown the now Duke a rare kindness when he was a child.

Polly Walker (by Ruth Crafer) bridgerton

POLLY WALKER (Pennyworth, Age Before Beauty) will play “LADY PORTIA FEATHERINGTON.”

Perhaps the most ambitious mama of all, Lady Featherington is determined to make advantageous matches for each of her daughters – and is forever pushing them on some rather disinterested parties.  Cunning and ruthless, Lady Featherington hustles to get what she wants, no matter the cost.

PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED:

Julie Andrews bridgerton

JULIE ANDREWS will play the voice of “LADY WHISTLEDOWN.”

Anonymous to readers, this mysterious, sharp-tongued gossip writer uses a curious mix of social commentary and scathing insult to send the season of 1813’s ton into an all-out frenzy.

We know this series is going to be amazing. Netflix and Shondaland are amazing separately, but together they are a true movement. British aristocracy and royalty have always been a source of interest, intrigue, and amazement; and now we are getting a new show that looks juicy! We will keep you posted as more news on this upcoming series becomes available!

It has been a year and a half since we walked the Ivy League halls of Winchester with our faves, Coco (Antoinette Robertson), Sam (Logan Browning), Troy, (Brandon P. Bell),  Reggie (Marque Richardson), Gabe (John Patrick Amedori), Lionel (DeRon Horton), and Joelle (Ashley Blaine Featherson). Now our motley college crew is back for Dear White People, Vol. 3!

When we last left Sam and Lionel discovered a secret organization pulling the string at Winchester, Cocoa was as power hungry as ever, Reggie and Joelle became a full-fledged couple, Troy was in a new relationship, and Sam and Gabe are still on the outs. This season so much comes to the forefront and changes when outside forces come into play, forcing the cast of characters to deal with real life, new life experiences, and possibly being puppets on a string!

Check out an additional trailer below!

We love the trailers and are glad to see other stars like Laverne Cox and Yvette Nicole Brown on board! What do you guys think of the new trailers and return of Dear White People? Sound off in the comments section below!

No More Nola! Netflix Cancels “She’s Gotta Have It” (@shesgottahaveit) After Two Seasons

We really wish we could “Say it ain’t so,” but it is true. Netflix has opted to cancel Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It after just two seasons. The second season of the series focused on Nola Darling’s newfound success as an unwitting mainstream artist not centered on her love affair with her three suitors from the previous season.

We really wish we could “Say it ain’t so,” but it is true. Netflix has opted to cancel Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It after just two seasons. The second season of the series focused on Nola Darling’s newfound success as an unwitting mainstream artist not centered on her love affair with her three suitors from the previous season.

she's gotta have it  canceled

The show’s second season premiered on the streaming service back on May 24, 2019. The show starred DeWanda Wise as Nola Darling, Anthony Ramos as Mars Blackmon, Lyriq Bent as Jamie Overstreet, Cleo Anthony as Greer Childs, Margot Bingham as Clorinda “Clo” Bradford, Chyna Layne as Shemekka Epps, and De’Adre Aziza as Raqueletta Moss.

Spike Lee is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and we’re thrilled he brought the series She’s Gotta Have It (1986, based on his first feature film) to Netflix,” Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, said, per Variety. “While this is our last season, we’re very proud that it will be on our service for years to come, and excited to be working with Spike on his upcoming Netflix film Da 5 Bloods.”

Lee will reportedly shop the series around in hopes of finding it another home. 

News of She’s Gotta Have It’s cancelation comes on the heels of reports that Netflix lost 130,000 subscribers in the U.S. during Q2. “Our missed forecast was across all regions, but slightly more so in regions with price increases,” Netflix said. The company pointed to their “content” as one of the reasons for the decline. “Rather, we think Q2’s content slate drove less growth in paid net adds than we anticipated.”

We hope Spike will find another network for She’s Gotta Have It. There is so much magic to this series, and it was the first that we know of to actually delve into Black art. Nola Darling we refuse to let you go!
