And now those who have been tuning into the period drama, which made its debut on Christmas Day, can rejoice as creator Chris Van Dusen has teased that it could have a long lifespan of eight seasons.

Chris went on to explain that the first season of the show was "primarily about Daphne and her love story with Simon", but there is so much more to explore within the world of Bridgerton.
