The latest season of Bridgerton is the most watched season in the history of the show.

Meaning that overall it is one of Netflix’s most watched series, well, ever!

According to Variety, the first four episodes of season three have been viewed a whopping 165.4 million hours in their first four days compared to season two’s 193 million in three days.⁠

And you have to remember that season three has been split in half so despite having just four episodes compared to season two’s eight episodes, it has been almost watched the exact same amount of time.
