The huge success of the new Netflix series, which follows the love story of Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Duke of Hastings Simon Bassett (Regé-Jean Page), the show’s creator Chris Van Dusen senses how many seasons are yet to come.
As fans know, the series is based on author Julia Quinn’s beloved books about the eight Bridgerton brothers. Does that mean there will be eight seasons in total?
Van Dusen told Collider. I feel like Season 1 is mostly about Daphne and her love affair with Simon. But, being a family of eight and there are eight books, I wish I could focus and really tell stories. And love stories for everyone. the Bridgerton brothers “.
When asked specifically if he wants eight seasons, Van Dusen confirmed: “I would love it. If it was successful, I would love it.”
Although Netflix has yet to officially announce a second season, Bridgerton has quickly become one of the most-streamed series on the platform since its Christmas launch, thanks in part to the chemistry between the main cast.
Bridgerton, executive producer Shonda Rhimes, is now streaming on Netflix.
