A fresh arrival on Netflix, this scandalous new period drama coming is already the talk of the town. Bridgerton is the anticipated adaptation of Julia Quinn's eight part book series of the same name, and counts Shonda Rhimes (TV queen responsible for shows like Grey's Anatomy and Scandal) as one of its producers so you know it will be TV gold. Described as a hybrid of Downton Abbey and cult teen dramas like Gossip Girl and Netflix's Elite, it will provide just as much intrigue as Emily in Paris - but with a 19th century twist, of course.

Not that this needs much of an introduction but for those who aren't familiar, Sex & The City follows the fabulous lives of writer Carrie Bradshaw and her three friends Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte in New York City. Despite their different personal and professional lives, the girls stick together through thick and thin, supporting one another through relationship dramas, work struggles, motherhood and of course, their ever-changing sex lives. Created by Darren Star, who is also behind Emily In Paris, it's save to say that Carrie Bradshaw walked so Emily Cooper could run.
