Netflix series 'Bridgerton' tipped for second season

Shonda Rhimes's new Netflix series, Bridgerton, which features a Black queen is reportedly tipped for a second season.
 
While it has not been confirmed, the success of the show has spurred talks about season two.
 
Rhimes's production company, Shondaland, is behind the new Netflix drama, which includes Black and White members of early 19th century British high society.
 
The series was created based on a Regency novel by Julia Quinn. 
 
In the show, Britain's real-life Queen Charlotte is portrayed as a Black woman as many have long believed that the queen had African ancestry based in part on the images of her.
 
The series is the first project from the TV mogul, released under her $150 million multi-year deal with the streaming platform.
 
She signed with Netflix in 2017 after leaving ABC, where she created acclaimed shows including Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, How to Get Away With Murder and Scandal.
