Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story | Official Trailer | Netflix

We might have to wait longer for Bridgertons third season to dive into Colin and Penelope’s love story, but Shonda Rhimes is tiding us over with a spin-off. This series is a prequel about Golda Rusheuvel’s character from the original and how a young Charlotte (played by India Amarteifio) fell for King George III (Corey Mylchrees). While Rusheuvel reprises her role, along with Adjoa Andoh and Ruth Gemmell, the show is squarely set before Bridgerton. The A.V. Club’s review and primer on Charlotte publish this week.

Jewish Matchmaking | Official Trailer | Netflix

Indian Matchmaking wasn’t enough for Netflix, so they’ve expanded on the reality docuseries with Jewish Matchmaking. This show’s version of Sima Aunty is Aleeza Ben Shalom, an Orthodox dating coach from Philadelphia who currently lives in Israel and claims to have helped more than 200 couples get to the chuppah. Her single clients are from both Israel and the U.S., and, yes, as expected, the trailer boasts a heavy amount of cringe.
