15 historical romance series Hollywood should adapt after Bridgerton
Bridgerton was the ultimate Christmas gift for romance fans, and now the only thing we want is more Bridgerton. There simply will never be enough stolen glances, smoldering dukes, glittering ballrooms, feisty heroines, and steamy interludes to satisfy us.
Netflix's new series, its first from Shondaland and showrunner Chris Van Dusen, follows Daphne (Phoebe Dyvenor) as she embarks on a fake relationship with Simon, the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), only to end up falling for him. The Regency-era romantic drama is based on a series of romance novels by Julia Quinn, which got us immediately thinking about the thousands of other amazing historical romances that would make excellent fodder for a television series. Hell, we would like to request a whole cinematic universe. Because even with this list, there's so many more worthy titles.
Here are 15 historical romance series we'd like to see adapted next. Call us, Netflix.
