UPDATE, 6:27 PM: “There is nothing on Earth quite so envied as a diamond,” says Lady Whistledown in the first season of Netflix and Shonda Rhimes’ blockbuster Bridgerton.

The Julie Andrews voiced character is rarely wrong, but she might want to recognize the value of an avoided legal action also.To that, the scheduled performance of the controversial Unofficial Bridgerton Musical didn’t occur in the UK this week, and Netflix’s copyright lawsuit over the work is now over too.“Plaintiffs Netflix Worldwide Entertainment, LLC and Netflix Studios, LLC hereby dismiss this action with prejudice,” said the streamer in a filing in federal court in Washington DC today (read it here) Those last two words of “with prejudice” in the brief notice of voluntary dismissal means that this matter is closed and done.

No explanation was given as to why the streamer suddenly pulled the plug on the suit it started back in late July against Grammy winning songwriting team Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear.However, despite Netflix and the Shondaland boss’ support and then distain for the musical over the months it doesn’t take a high society perch to figure who shut who down.
