Netflix continues to tease cast images for the “Bridgerton” prequel series “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story”.
As the next social season quickly approaches, Netflix shared a new image of Corey Mylchreest as a young King George.
The image featured Mylchreest as the royal leader standing beside a large golden telescope in a room decked with sculptures and paintings. Netflix gave no further information about the context behind the image.

King George, played by a much older James Fleet in the original “Bridgerton”, was only a minor character in the show’s two seasons.
However, his character created a lasting impact when an illness prompted Charlotte to rise to the leadership of the monarchy.
“Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story” will provide a much more detailed look at the young queen’s growth in power several years before “Bridgerton”. The series also shows the development between her and King George’s blossoming relationship.

“Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story” is anticipated to premiere sometime this spring.
