Nicholas Galitzine issues a “formal apology” after raunchy, queer ‘Mary & George’ series drives viewers wild.

Gay Twitter™ has been in shambles this week now that the historical drama Mary & George has premiered in the U.K., and clips from the raunchy series are spreading across the social media platform like wildfire.

We’re still a month out from the miniseries’ stateside debut on Starz, but folks have gotten a glimpse of some of its most blush-worthy moments and are frankly having a hard time keeping it together.

Based on a (highly contested) “true” story, Mary & George follows Countess of Buckingham Mary Villiers (Julianne Moore) who will stop at nothing to climb the ranks of the monarchy in 17th century England, namely encouraging her gorgeous son George (Galitizine) to sleep with the infamously promiscuous King James VI and I (Tony Curran), who Mary describes as “so c*ck-struck it’s like a curse”.

After the one-two punch of Red, White & Royal Blue and Bottoms last summer, fans are particularly ecstatic to see Galitzine play a different kind of royal—one with few morals and certainly no qualms over jumping into bed with just about anyone. From the looks of it, the rising star committed to the bold role 110%.

In fact, we can’t even show you everything that’s floating around the internet, but here’s just a taste of how thirsty it’s made everyone:
