Bridgerton creator, Chris Van Dusen, recently teased in an interview with Collider how many seasons the show could run for overall.

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 pressed if he would like Bridgerton to air for eight seasons in total, Van Dusen admitted: “I would love that. In success, I would love that.”

Van Dusen also opened up about what could be in store for future seasons, particularly surrounding Daphne and Simon.

He said: “I think it’s too early to tell right now. I think that we’re along for the ride of Daphne and Simon’s love story this first season.

“And, I think we’ve done some work in Season one to set up other characters.

“We really dig into Anthony’s love story. We’re really exploring Benedict as well, and Collin, and Eloise relationship.

“I think it’s a deep well of story for us to explore.”
