Rosheuvel, who plays Queen Charlotte, revealed that she was sniffing a mixture of glucose and something else during season 1, although she didn't know what the "something" was. Bridgerton, based on the books by Julia Quinn, follows high society families and their romantic pursuits in Regency-era Britain. The series, part of Shonda Rhimes' Netflix deal, has been a huge success, with fans loving the chemistry between the characters and the opulent costumes. Netflix projected that the show will reach 63 million households in its first 28 days, making it one of the platform's most-watched original series. The popularity of the show has also boosted book sales, with copies selling for high prices online. Bridgerton season 1 is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
