This sweeping historical series is based on the books by Diana Gabaldon. It follows the story of Claire, who time-travels back in time and is forced to navigate a whole new era while falling in love along the way. This show currently has six seasons and is renewed for a seventh. Viewers are warned that the show contains many highly graphic and violent scenes. Because, unlike Bridgerton, it does not sugarcoat the many disadvantages of living during that time.

Victoria

Following the story of young Queen Victoria, this series has not received the popularity and acclaim it deserves. The three seasons follow Victoria as she ascends the throne, meets the love of her life Prince Albert and starts a young family, all while ruling her country as a very young woman. This gorgeous show is perfect for anyone looking for the Bridgerton-romance vibes.

Vanity Fair

Based on the novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, this mini-series follows Becky Sharp as she tries to improve her life.  Bridgerton fans will recognize Becky’s very good friend, Amelia Sedley, who is played by Claudia Jesse, who plays Eloise Bridgerton. The series tells the story of those forced to exist on the fringes of the rich and powerful.

Downton Abbey

By the creator of Downton Abbey comes the story of the Gilded Age in America.

The Great

This hilariously funny and inappropriate show is very loosely based on the true story of Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia, as she rises to power. The actors in this show are excellent, and the story is hysterical. The show calls itself “genre-bending, anti-historical,” which sums up the relationship this show has to traditional period dramas.
