For the second week in a row, Season 2 of Bridgerton drew impressive viewing figures for Netflix with 251.74 million hours viewed, breaking the record for the most viewed title in a week on the English TV list (Squid Game still holds the overall record with 571.76 million hours viewed).
The Shondaland-penned series was also in the Top 10 in 93 countries for the week commencing March 28th.
