Bridgerton has officially been named as Netflix's biggest series ever.
The Regency drama stole the crown from The Witcher, the streaming giant confirmed on Wednesday.
The Shonda Rhimes period romp, which has just been confirmed for a second season, was watched by a record 82 million households globally, and already held the title of fifth biggest launch in Netflix history.
Season 1, which dropped on Christmas Day, follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) as she falls for Duke Simon Bassett (Regé-Jean Page) - a handsome singleton who has caught the eye of just about everyone in Regency London.
After weeks of building a rapport and a lot of side-eye in the ballroom, the lusty duo enter into the 19th-century equivalent of a shotgun wedding - only to realise there are real feelings between them.
