Between the incredible orchestral versions of your favorite pop songs and those steamy sex scenes, it is protected to say that the Netflix interval drama has taken the world by storm. No, actually, the present has been projected to achieve 63 million households inside 28 days of its debut.
We had been amongst these households who devoured the sequence and we’re right here to inform you that we’ll by no means hearken to Taylor Swift‘s “Wildest Desires” the identical. (If you recognize, you recognize.)
Nevertheless, having binged the sequence so shortly, we had been left itching for a brand new present that might encourage us the way in which Bridgerton has.
