Now that it’s 2023, there’s so much to look forward to for Bridgerton fans. Not only will the third season of the hit romantic drama series premiere later this year, but the highly anticipated prequel spinoff Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story will also make its debut in 2023.

In the upcoming prequel, India Ria Amarteifio will star as Young Queen Charlotte in the original story of the character played by Golda Rosheuvel. The limited series will focus on young Charlotte’s rise through the ranks to the queen we all know and love.

Filming and production on the upcoming prequel spinoff began back in the first quarter of 2022, with the wrap date ultimately arriving in August of the same year. Since then, the team has been hard at work on post-production, preparing for the release of the show fans can’t wait to watch.

A recent release rumor suggests that Queen Charlotte could be released on Netflix as soon as May 2023. While Netflix confirmed in press mailers that the series will be released this spring, the swirling rumors on the exact date haven’t. Let’s dig into this enticing rumor!

Is Queen Charlotte coming in May 2023? (release rumor explained)

In January, devoted and eagle-eyed Bridgerton fans noticed that Netflix itself may have leaked the release date. A reminder from TUDUM signaled a fan to mark their calendar for Queen Charlotte’s release on May 4. You might be thinking, “Wait, but that’s a Thursday!” Well, Netflix has started releasing hit shows like Outer Banks, You, and more on Thursdays.

Until we hear an actual announcement on the show’s release date directly from the source, we can’t take the supposed leak as fact. Sure, the streaming service could have accidentally leaked the release date and fans picked up on it. But it also could have been a glitch using a placeholder date. You never know! We hope the release date is true and the series releases ASAP.

As for when Bridgerton season 3 will be released, fans will have to wait a bit longer to watch Colin and Penelope’s story unfold. The new season likely won’t be released until much later in 2023, but we do know that we won’t be seeing Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Bridgerton in season 3. The actress confirmed she exited the series after two seasons, following on-screen husband Regé-Jean Page’s lead with his departure after the first season.
