Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins) is the narrator of a new series on Netflix, Bridgerton. This show is the first as part of Shonda Rhimes' exclusive deal with the streaming service, and it has a reputation of a mix between Downton Abbey and Gossip Girl. While the premise alone creates excitement among viewers, they have expressed happiness about one particular aspect — Andrews cursing.
When Netflix users learned that Andrews was narrating the series, they responded with considerable excitement. They proclaimed that Bridgerton was an incredible series and that hearing Mary Poppins swearing was completely unexpected. Several continued and proclaimed that the cursing messed with their childhood but would not derail their enjoyment. These fans said that they would accept Andrews and her Gossip Girl attitude.
Only a few minutes in to #Bridgerton and I already love Eloise, rolled my eyes at Anthony and may have squealed when a string quartet started playing "Thank You, Next." Also, Julie Andrews saying "bitches" - I'm deceased. 😂 pic.twitter.com/rZ6Gv7Tx1K— negev79 (@negev791) December 25, 2020

Ok I don’t know how I missed that Julie Andrews had been cast as Lady Whistledown in Bridgerton but it’s perfect and I’m so here for Regency Gossip Girl.— Elisabeth Bayer 🦙 (@ejbayer) December 25, 2020
