All Hail Queen Charlotte - What We Know So Far

"Bridgerton," which was developed by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes, is easily one of Netflix's most popular titles — in fact, viewers spent a whopping 193 million hours watching its recently released 2nd season over its premiere weekend (via Variety). Based on the novels by Julia Quinn, each season of the Regency Era drama series follows one of the eight Bridgerton siblings as they search for love.

Considering the show's popularity, it comes as no surprise that Netflix has decided to expand the world of "Bridgerton" with a limited series spinoff. The new series, titled "All Hail Queen Charlotte" was announced in May of 2021, long before Season 2 of "Bridgerton" was released (via The Hollywood Reporter). The spinoff will be a prequel series, focused on a younger Queen Charlotte (played by Golda Rosheuvel in "Bridgerton"). "Many viewers had never known the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I'm thrilled this new series will further expand her story and the world of 'Bridgerton,'" read a statement from Netflix's Bela Bajaria.

"Bridgerton" fans will be happy to hear that, months after the prequel was announced, we now have some more information regarding "All Hail Queen Charlotte" — here's what we know so far.

All Hail Queen Charlotte is finding its cast

The upcoming series will focus on Queen Charlotte's marriage to King George — as well as the repercussions it sparked within the society. Initially engaged against her will, Charlotte is surprised at what royal life is like once she arrives in London and soon becomes growing into the strong monarch that the world of "Bridgerton" is familiar with. With the plot in mind, the first question likely coming to fans' minds is: who will play a young Queen Charlotte? Per The Hollywood Reporter, India Amarteifio will take on the role. Amarteifio's previous credits include "Sex Education," "The Tunnel," and "Evermoor." Golda Rosheuvel from "Bridgerton" will also reprise the role of Queen Charlotte in the new series. Adjoa Andoh, who plays Lady Agatha Danbury, and Ruth Gemmell, who plays Lady Violet Bridgerton, will also reprise their roles in "All Hail Queen Charlotte." The final "Bridgerton" actor set to appear in the new series is Hugh Sachs, who plays Brimsley.

Additionally, Corey Mylchreest ("Sandman") will portray the young King George, who begins to see his role as the monarch differently after marrying Charlotte. Arsema Thomas ("Redeeming Love") will take on the role of the younger Agatha Danbury. Meanwhile, Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark in "Game of Thrones") will play a princess named Augusta determined to make her son the monarch.

Other cast members include Sam Clemmett, Richard Cunningham, Tunji Kasim, Rob Maloney, and Cyril Nri.
