Netflix’s expansion of the Bridgerton universe will include some familiar faces.
The streaming service on Wednesday announced the cast for the forthcoming Queen Charlotte miniseries.
Golda Rosheuval (Queen Charlotte), Adjoa Andoh (Lady Agatha Danbury), and Ruth Gemmell (Lady Violet Bridgerton) reprise their roles from Bridgerton in this series.
India Amarteifio (Line of Duty) plays Young Queen Charlotte:
Betrothed to the mysterious King of England against her will, Charlotte arrives in London only to realize she was not exactly what the royals were expecting.
As she learns to navigate the palace, the ‘ton and her unpredictable husband, she grows into one of Europe’s most unforgettable monarchs.
Michelle Fairley (Gangs of London) plays Princess Augusta:
Determined to maintain her family’s power, the Dowager Princess does what it takes to secure her son’s place as monarch amidst a changing, modernizing Britain.
Corey Mylchreest (Sandman) plays Young King George:
Handsome, charismatic, and a bit of a mystery, George has always bowed to the restraints placed on him as the Crown.
Until now. Having to share his space, and bed, with his new wife forces George to face his hidden demons head on.
Arsema Thomas (television debut) plays Young Agatha Danbury:
Under the thumb of a much older husband, Agatha uses Charlotte’s arrival to find her own way into society.
With keen knowledge of the once divided social scene and the intricacies of marriage, Agatha becomes a guiding light for the new Queen, all while finding her own voice and power we’ll soon recognize as Bridgerton’s iconic Lady Danbury.
Rounding out the cast are Sam Clemmett (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – West End and Broadway, The War Below) plays Young Brimsley, Richard Cunningham (The Witcher) plays Lord Bute, Tunji Kasim (Nancy Drew) plays Adolphus.
The cast also includes Rob Maloney (Casualty) plays the Royal Doctor, Cyril Nri (Cucumber) plays Lord Danbury, Hugh Sachs (Bridgerton Seasons 1 & 2) plays Brimsley (older).
Centered on Queen Charlotte’s rise to prominence and power, this Bridgerton-verse prequel tells the story of how the young Queen’s marriage to King George sparked both a great love story and a societal shift, creating the world of the Ton inherited by the characters in Bridgerton.
Bridgerton Season 2 launched on Netflix earlier this month, and two more seasons have been ordered.
