However, we now come bearing fantastic news - no, the Duke won't be back - but Bridgerton will return for a third and fourth season.

Yep, Netflix has ordered two additional seasons of the immensely popular period drama and we are so excited.

Two of the show's executive producers, Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers discussed the future of the show in an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair. The magazine also confirmed that the hotly anticipated second season is currently filming in the UK.

Bela Bajaria, Netflix's head of global TV, confirmed the news to Vanity Fair, adding that the streamer intends to be members of the ton "for a long time to come."

Bridgerton was a huge hit for Netflix when it debuted on Christmas Day last year, with audience captivated by the blossoming love story between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dyvenor) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page).

The series soon became known for its raunchy and full-frontal sex scenes, the series was watched by 82 million households in the first month of its release.

The second season will follow the eldest Bridgerton sibling Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey) in his quest for love.

The Viscount Who Loved Me sees Anthony fall for Edwina Sharma initially, before turning his attentions towards her older sister, Kate.

Newcomer Charithra Chandran is thought to have landed the role of Edwina Rupert Young, who is known for roles in Merlin, Doctor Who and Doc Martin has also been cast in a major role, Deadline reports.

The two new additions join Sex Education star Simone Ashley, who has been cast as lead Kate Sharma for the new series.

The series is based on a collection of nine books written by Julia Quinn.
