Netflix ‘s hit series ‘Bridgerton’ could be sticking around for some time.
Amid the massive success of the series, which follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) whose societal entanglement with Duke of Hastings, Simon Bassett (Regé-Jean Page), drives most of the drama in this first season; the show’s creator Chris Van Dusen teased that there could be many more seasons to come.
‘There’s enough story here to fuel as many as eight seasons of the show”, — something Van Dusen would love to see happen. Talking to Collider, he had this to say:
“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.”
If he would specifically want eight seasons, he responded with:
“I would love that. In success, I would love that.”
The show found instant success on Netflix, where it has become one of the most streamed series on the platform. Its executive producer is Shonda Rimes of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Scandal’ fame.
‘Bridgerton’ is based off of a book series by Julia Quinn. Needless to say, this is one turn of events that even Lady Whistledown surely did not see coming.
Bridgerton is streaming now on Netflix.
