17 Period Dramas For The Ultimate Escape

Period dramas are the ultimate escapist viewing. When the world seems a little too much, indulge in any of these dramas where the problems and trouble are so far removed from our everyday lives.

The Empress

When rebellious Elisabeth (“Sisi”) meets Franz, the young Emperor of Austria, it’s love at first sight. But their ecstatic and impetuous relationship causes chaos in the dynasty and upsets the balance of power.


Bridgerton is the most swoon-worthy show! They even have an episode titled “The Art of the Swoon.” If you are a Shonda Rhimes fan (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal), or you really enjoy steamy historical romances, then Bridgerton is the show for you.

Nothing is more swoon-worthy than the decadent palace of Versailles built by Louis XIV. This French show takes place during the construction of the Palace of Versailles.


The Crown

This show follows the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, from her marriage to Prince Philip and coronation to Princess Diana’s entrance into the family. Like all things royal, this show is swoony indeed!

Yet another political drama, this is the story of Mary, Queen of Scots, as she rises to power in the French court, which is full of intrigue and plots.
