Bridgerton becomes Netflix’s most viewed series ever, smashing previous record

Shonda Rhimes‘ first series for Netflix, Bridgerton, is officially the streaming giant’s biggest episodic television debut in history.

The Regency-era romance, already renewed for a second season, not just exceeded Netflix’s original viewership projections, it blew them out of the water.

The final numbers are in, and Season 1 of Bridgerton was watched by a record 82 million households around the world (partially or in its entirety.) That is a whopping 19M households higher than the four-week projection Netflix issued 10 days into the Shondaland series’ run (63 million), at the time the streamer’s fifth-biggest launch in history.
