From scandals, finding romance, and friendships to soirees, balls, and beautiful gowns, Bridgerton gave us a closer look into the lives of the members of London’s high society in the 1800s. Combined with the actors’ impressive portrayal of each character in the show, there’s no wonder why it remains in the top shows in multiple countries globally. If you’re still on a Bridgerton hangover, we’ve rounded up some shows where you can watch its very talented actors:
For the People (Regé-Jean Page a.k.a Simon Basset)
Regé-Jean Page is no stranger in the Shondaland productions as he’s previously worked with Shonda Rhimes in the 2018 legal drama For the People.
Also known as the Mother Court, the United States District for the Southern District of New York is the oldest district court in the US. Six new lawyers, three on the defense and three on the prosecution, are bound to work here to handle some of the most high-stake and high-profile federal cases in the country. Both their professional and personal lives are at stake as they work at America’s most prestigious trial court.
Snatch (Phoebe Dynevor a.k.a Daphne Bridgerton)
Based on a movie of the same name, Snatched follows the lives of a group of twenty-something hustlers who accidentally discover a truck full of gold bullions. They get tucked into the world of organized crimes and everything in between. Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint and Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick also stars in the show.
Derry Girls (Nicola Coughlan a.k.a. Penelope Featherington)
Set in the ’90s in a small Northern Ireland town called Derry, five teenagers find unexpected friendship as they struggle with the nuns in their school, their parents, and all the embarrassment that surrounds teenage life.
Crashing (Jonathan Bailey a.k.a. Anthony Bridgerton)
What would happen if you mix twenty-somethings strangers under one roof, let alone in a disused hospital? In order to save money, they agree to live together in this odd housing. Crashing shows the lives of different young adults who are slowly learning to handle more responsibilities in the real world.
Vanity Fair (Claudia Jesse a.k.a. Eloise Bridgerton)
If you still can’t get enough of the 1800s, you’ll definitely enjoy Vanity Fair. Set years after Napoleon’s defeat, Vanity Fair is based on a novel of the same name that follows the life of Becky Sharp as she fights her way out of poverty. Through manipulation, fighting, and romances, she finds herself farther up in the society – the court of King George IV.
The Princess Diaries (Julie Andrews a.k.a. Lady Whistledown)
We may not have seen her in Bridgerton, but it was Julie Andrews’ voice behind sharp-tongued Lady Whistledown. Aside from her timeless classics The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, Julie Andrews takes the role of the Queen of Genovia, the grandmother to a clueless Mia Thermopolis. It turns out that she’s a princess of a European state, and she needs to please her grandmother to prove herself worthy of the title.
Lake Placid: Legacy (Luke Newton a.k.a. Colin Bridgerton)
A group of activists is challenged to travel to an island to explore an old facility. But they only realized the trip wasn’t a good plan when things were already too late. Something goes wrong during their attempt to leave the island and they get stuck. Desperate for survival, they meet an unfriendly predator – a monster.
Victoria (Sabrina Bartlett a.k.a. Siena Rosso)
Victoria is a show inspired by true events. At the age of 18, Victoria becomes the Queen of England after her father’s death. She meets Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and continues her duty as England’s queen, which led to the country’s second-longest reign. Queen Victoria was queen for 64 years.
