Bridgerton Could Run For Eight Seasons, Creator Confirms
As fans will know, the show is actually based on a collection of books by Julia Quinn. And with eight novels in the series - there's scope for plenty more TV seasons, too.
And creator Chris Van Dusen has confirmed he's definitely up for making more, explaining that there are plenty of stories to tell.
Speaking to Collider, he said: "I feel like the first season was primarily about Daphne and her love story with Simon.
"But, this being a family of eight children and there being eight books, I would love to be able to focus and really tell stories and love stories for all the Bridgerton siblings. For each character, for sure."
When asked if that would potentially mean eight seasons, he replied: "I would love that. In success, I would love that."
Since the series dropped on Christmas Day, it's been a monumental success, projected to be watched by 63 million households across the four weeks following its release.

And in terms of a Season 2, many cast members have already confirmed they would love to return for another instalment. Phoebe Dynevor (who plays Daphne Bridgerton) told Elle: "I want to see Daphne get involved in Anthony's love life a bit, as he sort of meddled with hers quite a lot," she said. "I think that will be fun."
Meanwhile Regé-Jean Page, who plays Daphne's husband Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings, explained he would like to see how their marriage evolves in a potential next season.
"As far as continuing to explore characters, I think that love is an evolving thing," he told TV Guide. "It's a living, breathing thing that needs tending, that needs looking after, that needs mending when it gets worn or torn.
"They get married very young. They still have a lot of growing to do. They have a lot to do, and I think it'll always be fun to watch them do that together."
We're very much here for plenty of new Bridgerton seasons - and the sooner, the better!
