We've had two seasons of Bridgerton filled with romance, but before we get to the third, we're getting a prequel.

That's right, folks, it's time to delve into Queen Charlotte's backstory.

Netflix and Shondaland hosted a global event for Bridgerton universe super fans on Tuesday in anticipation of Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story.

"Centered on Queen Charlotte's rise to prominence and power, this Bridgerton-verse prequel tells the story of how the young Queen's marriage to King George sparked both a great love story and a societal shift, creating the world of the Ton inherited by the characters in Bridgerton," the logline reads.

Unfortunately, we didn't get a premiere date for Bridgerton Season 3, but Netflix's promotional efforts are behind the spinoff for now.

If we had to guess, the third season won't air until the fall.
