If you have a Netflix subscription and use the internet chances are that you’ve heard of the hit series Bridgerton. But did you know the series is based on a book series and that the author is actually from Seattle? That’s right, Julia Quinn is responsible for creating the beloved world of Bridgerton.

Julia Quinn’s 8-part book series ‘Bridgerton’ was actually released over two decades ago. So it was definitely a bit of a surprise when Shonda Rhimes reached out to bring this series to the big screen. And an even bigger surprise when the series became Netflix’s most-watched original series ever.

And we have a feeling that the show will only continue to grow in popularity due to its diversity and steamy nature. Plus a second season is on the way and if there are 8 books, we’ll hope for 8 seasons. Not to mention, Julia Quinn is a best-selling author so we wouldn’t be surprised if another one of her series ended up getting adapted for the screen.

Regardless we’re proud that this Seattle resident has taken the world by storm and we can’t wait to see what season 2 has in store. If you’d like to learn more you can click here.

Have a great day Seattle.JTNDZGl2JTIwaWQlM0QlMjJtb2JpbGUtYWQtb25seSUyMiUzRSUwQSUzQyUyMS0tJTIwU2VhdHRsZSUyMC0lMjBNb2JpbGUlMjAtLSUzRSUwQSUzQ2lucyUyMGNsYXNzJTNEJTIyYWRzYnlnb29nbGUlMjIlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBzdHlsZSUzRCUyMmRpc3BsYXklM0FibG9jayUzQndpZHRoJTNBMzIwcHglM0JoZWlnaHQlM0E1MHB4JTNCJTIyJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwZGF0YS1hZC1jbGllbnQlM0QlMjJjYS1wdWItNTUyMTg1Njk1NTQ5NzQ1NiUyMiUwQSUyMCUyMCUyMCUyMCUyMGRhdGEtYWQtc2xvdCUzRCUyMjE2MjcxNzI5NDclMjIlM0UlM0MlMkZpbnMlM0UlMEElM0MlMkZkaXYlM0U=
