Days Of Our Lives star, Raven Bowens, has had a hilariously good idea to re-make Bridgerton. The actor thinks it needs a ‘hood twist’ and her as the main star, we’re certainly here for it.

Precious Way left DOOL after appearing in just 29 episodes, with Raven Bowens stepping into her character on 6 July 2021. The usual announcement stating “the role of… is now being played by…” for Bowens’ debut was never given, making her arrival a blink or you’ll miss it moment.

Since then, Raven has taken Chanel Dupree from strength to strength. Although, it appears the actor has bigger ideas, could she scrap DOOL for her Bridgerton spin-off idea?

DOOL fans in stitches over Raven Bowens’ Bridgerton remake idea

Raven Bowens shared a genius idea with her 8,000 Instagram followers in a clever caption: “Hear me out… a show called “Hoodgerton” A spin off of @bridgertonnetflix with generally the same plot… It just takes place in the hood and this girl right here plays the seasons diamond 💎🤣 would y’all watch?”

Comments flooded in, with her co-stars and fans alike saying they would tune into ‘Hoodgerton.’ Actor Anastasia Baranova commented “😍 Tuned in! Subscribed!” along with fellow DOOL co-star, Victoria Konefal, who penned “Already adding it to my queue.”

Snowfall actor Gail Bean wrote “Would I watch? Shhh I’d never watch Bridgerton again. Make it! Lol” with another fan writing “Haha, yes I would, especially if you’re the lead. 😍😍.”

In the photo dump, Raven wore a posh Bridgerton-esque dress with a fascinator. When a fan commented asking where the dress was from the actor replied that she copped it on Amazon. The other photos in the swipe fit the Bridgerton theme, with a picture of a silverware teapot and plants. The last photo had a quote which read “Sorry to interrupt your scrolling but I wanted to say that you’re amazing and you deserve to be happy.” We can always rely on Bowens for positivity, that’s for sure.

Who is Raven Bowens?
