Fans Spotted Modern-Day Mistake In 'Bridgerton' Opening Scene


Ever since Bridgerton appeared on Netflix last month, the Regency-era drama has continued to capture viewers' attention. As more people tune in to the latest Shondaland production, however, a few modern-day mistakes have been spotted in the show.

Over the last few days, fans of Bridgerton have shared the minor mistakes on social media. Multiple Twitter users have pointed out that in one of the show's opening scenes, which shows a horse-drawn carriage rounding a bend on a cobbled street, painted yellow lines can be spotted on the side of the road. According to the British newspaper The Independent, these types of yellow lines indicate parking restrictions in the U.K.. They were first implemented in 1947. Bridgerton, however, takes place in the 1800s.

In another scene, characters Eloise Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington can be seen out on a walk. During their walk, Eloise and Penelope walk past "a telecoms manhole cover," one Twitter user claimed. Another Twitter user also claims to have seen a shop window with Primark posters hanging up—Primark is an Irish department store that first opened in 1969.

Despite these minor mishaps, Bridgerton has already been picked up for a second season at Netflix. While the first season followed Daphne Bridgerton as she made her debut in London society's competitive "marriage mart," the second season will mainly focus on Anthony Bridgerton. “The author has been reliably informed that Lord Anthony Bridgerton intends to dominate the social season. I will have my pen ready to report on any and all of his romantic activities,” a press release, written from the perspective of Lady Whistledown, revealed.

Bridgerton is expected to begin filming the sophomore season later this spring.
