Formerly titled ‘Pride & Prejudice: An Experiment in Romance,’ NBC’s ‘The Courtship’ is a dating reality series that can only be described as the perfect blend of ‘The Bachelorette‘ and ‘Bridgerton.’ After all, it takes the entire genre back to the Regency-era to not only offer a refreshingly new (well, old) take on emotional connections but also to emphasize that chivalry might not just be dead yet. What makes it even more compelling is the fact that Rick Edwards — a Brit with quite the sense of humor — serves as the host. For now, let’s only focus on the show’s premise and accessibility, shall we?
What is The Courtship About?
Set in an actual castle on the rolling hills of England for a completely immersive experience, ‘The Courtship’ revolves around “a heroine looking for her duke” with the help of her family. She wants to find true love, yet she’s tired of modern dating and charmless men, so she begins her quest by going back to the old ways, with 16 suitors vying for her affection.
We’re not exaggerating when we mean old ways because it’s all ballroom dances, gowns, carriage rides, archery lessons, handwritten love letters, and more. But alas, an attractive suitor will be eliminated weekly, forced to return to the contemporary world, that is, until our lady lands on “the one.”
Is The Courtship on Netflix?
‘The Courtship’ is not a part of Netflix’s extensive roster at the moment, but the ‘Love is Blind‘ franchise (including the Japanese as well as the Brazillian versions), ‘Sexy Beasts,’ and ‘Love on the Spectrum‘ are good alternatives available on the platform.

Where to Watch The Courtship Online?
