If you've finished watching Bridgerton, here are 7 binge-worthy TV shows to watch next.

Last month, Bridgerton returned for a second season.

The historical drama, produced by powerhouse Shonda Rhimes (the woman behind Grey's Anatomy) and set during the Regency era in England, follows the powerful Bridgerton family as they attempt to find love in London's high society. 

The first season focused on the eldest daughter, Daphne, and the second season focuses on the eldest son, Anthony.

It's gripping, it's steamy, and it's the perfect escape from reality.

If you haven't watched Bridgerton yet, here's the trailer. Post continues below.

To save you from scanning the internet to find something to watch next, we've compiled a list of seven sexy, historical shows to watch after Bridgerton.

If Bridgerton's steamy scenes had you hooked, Outlander is the next show for you. The historical drama follows the lead character Claire, a former World War II army nurse, who inadvertently travels through time and falls in love with an 18th-century Scots warrior. 

Where to watch: Netflix.

Gossip Girl

If Bridgerton was set in the 2010s, it would be called Gossip Girl. The popular six-season show follows a group of teenagers from New York's Upper East Side who have too much money and an equal amount of drama. It's addictive.

Belgravia is a historical drama based on the 2016 book by Julian Fellowes (the creator of Downton Abbey) of the same name. It all starts in 1815, when the Trenchards accept an invitation to an extravagant ball on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo. After, secrets and scandals start unravelling. 

Where to watch: ABC iview.

Downton Abbey

Finally, the most popular period drama of them all. Downton Abbey is set in the fictional country estate of Yorkshire and takes place in 1912. The story follows the aristocratic Crawley family and those who work for them. Plus, it stars Maggie Smith, so that's enough of a reason to watch it.

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video.
