Bridgerton turned out to be one of Netflix's biggest shows and within just one season built a massive fan base for itself. Set in the Regency era in England, the show's first season revolved around the Bridgerton family and their quest to find a suitable man for Daphne Bridgerton played by Phoebe Dynevor. The series' success has been such that Phoebe Dynevor and Rege-Jean Page became overnight sensations and even had other celebrities swooning over their passionate romance. 

Bridgerton fandom is certainly not limited to regular folks considering even celebrities like Kim Kardashian are major fans of the show. The success of Bridgerton has been such that a few weeks ago, fans of the show went berserk after it was revealed that actor Rege-Jean Page who played the ever-so-handsome Duke of Hastings on the show won't return for the second season. With producer Shonda Rhimes behind the show's adaptation from Julia Quinn's novels, the show is now also set to have three more seasons.

Anonymous : I found it incredibly boring. A simple premise dragged out for 8 episodes. And I didn’t see any chemistry between the leads. I also had to give one episode a complete miss because it was too much adult content every five minutes - pure SMUT.
