Well, well, well. Netflix, you did it. You took the “The Duke and I,” the first novel in Julia Quinn’s “Bridgerton” series of historical romance novels, and turned it into what you claim is the most-watched episodic television series on the service ever. (82 million households turned in! Which is … a very watery metric, but fine!)

So, how do you follow that up? Well, Quinn’s written seven more novels in the series, yes, one for each Bridgerton child, although the stories aren’t told in alphabetical order, and super producer Shonda Rhimes of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” fame has the rights to adapt them. Chronologically, the next up is “The Viscount Who Loved Me.” The first season of “Bridgerton” hewed pretty closely to the outline of the first book, “The Duke and I,” so what can we expect from Season 2?
