'The Courtship' Dating Show Drops Next Month & This Guy From Vancouver May Be The Next Duke

Bridgerton fans, rejoice! Not only is season two of the much-loved show coming out soon, but there's also a new reality dating show called The Courtship that is bringing Regency-era vibes to TV — and one cast member Derek Kesseler is from Vancouver, B.C.

The new show is bringing a group of eligible single men to court a "heroine" and win her heart.

The NBC website said that all of the suitors are going to be living "in a castle on the countryside and set on a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills."

Basically, it sounds like an actual fairy tale — with carriage rides and all.

They even bring back the lost art of letter-writing on the show, which honestly is just way more romantic than a "U UP?" text.

The trailer for The Courtship looks like the set of Bridgerton come to life — costumes and all. Unfortunately, Regé-Jean Page is the one thing that's missing.

It premieres on March 6 on NBC, and, according to the show's trailer, there will be scandals involved.


The star — and heroine — of the show is Nicole Remy. She is on a quest for love and one of her suitors is Derek Kesseler, who lives in Vancouver.

So, who is Derek Kesseler?

Despite the show not having aired yet, Kesseler actually has a big following on Instagram already, with over 81,000 followers.

His bio says that he's interested in fashion, lifestyle, travel and photography. Hopefully falling in love is somewhere in there, too?

He seems like a proud Vancouverite, with photos of him downtown and exploring B.C.

Hopefully, he's going to make his city proud!
