May 16 (UPI) -- Netflix and Shondaland have announced plans for a Bridgerton spinoff about Queen Charlotte.

"While the series will center on the rise and love life of a young Queen Charlotte, it will also tell the stories of young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury," the streaming service said in a press release.

"Shonda Rhimes will write the series and serve as executive producer alongside Betsy Beers and Tom Verica. An official title and more details will be revealed at a later time."

Bridgerton is an early 19th century British romance series based on Julia Quinn's novels.

Golda Rosheuvel plays Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III (James Fleet) on the show, which has been renewed through its fourth season.

Season 1 debuted late last year.

The cast also includes Ruth Gemmell as Violet and Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury.
