Fans agreed, tweeting their support for the show’s diversity.
2) It gave the diversity a back story and made it REAL for how things are today. I hope that came across as a positive commentary on the diversity of the show.

Everything about Bridgerton is perfect. It’s a contemporary take on the regency era. The music, the costumes, the casting are all incredible. If I wanted historical accuracy I can watch a documentary or go to a museum.
