And the all-new regal drama Bridgerton is no exception to this.

Because it's safe to say that Netflix reigns supreme as the world's most popular streaming service...


And since it was founded in 1997, it has experienced nothing but unbelievable volumes of success.

In 2013, the streaming giant began curating its own original content.


Netflix began launching its own content 8 years ago, starting with political drama, House of Cards, which has gone on to have 6 seasons.

It has since rolled out many of our favorite shows...

Closely following House of Cards was Orange Is The New Black, which has aired its seventh and final season, and is one of the platform's biggest success stories.

In more recent years, Netflix has been responsible for several other major hits.


Shows such as The Crown, Glow, and Grace and Frankie have all attracted huge viewership.

And, of course, we can't forget Stranger Things.

The sci-fi show debuted in 2016 and has since become one of the most popular Netflix originals on the platform.

The streaming giant truly has dominated the market.

Out of all the streaming services, there's no doubt Netflix is top of the game - with over sixty million paying subscribers in the U.S. alone.

And it seems their latest offering may be their best yet.

There's also a season two on the way!

"The incomparable cast of Bridgerton will return to production in Spring 2021," the pamphlet said, hinting that the entire Season 1 cast will be back though the involvement of some will likely be scaled down.

According to Deadline, casting is already underway for several new roles...

"We have a bunch of new characters we are going to be introducing," creator Chris Van Dusen said this morning in announcing the renewal on Today with Hoda & Jenna.

"Anthony is going to have a love interest next season, and I think it's going to be as sweeping and moving and as beautiful as viewers of the first season have come to expect from the show."

People have very high expectations for the next season...

And we're sure it's going to be amazing!
