Bridgerton Creator Would 'Love' Show To Run For Eight Seasons

Bridgerton Creator Would 'Love' Show To Run For Eight Seasons

The creator of Bridgerton has said he would 'love' the show to run for eight seasons.

The period drama - based on Julia Quinn's novels - dropped on Netflix on Christmas Day and is projected to be watched by 63 million households across the four weeks following its release.

Excitingly, if you're in one of the households that has already rattled through it, the show's creator Chris Van Dusen is up for making a lot more.

Speaking to Collider, 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."

Asked if that means he would like eight seasons, he replied: "I would love that. In success, I would love that."

The show follows the Bridgerton family as they look for love and happiness in London high society.

But while all that sounds very quaint, one should approach with caution, with Entertainment Weekly writer Kristen Baldwin referring to it as a 'wonderful diversion for those who love Pride & Prejudice but wish it had more stairway sex'.

Baldwin explains: "Ju
st know that there are balls and operas and drawing room intrigue, sweaty shirtless boxing matches and bitter family rivalries, unrequited love and a comely distant cousin (Ruby Barker) with a secret, and passionate sexual awakenings.

"Be it indoors or outdoors, bedroom, library or grand staircase, backstage at the opera house or beneath the canvas-covered bleachers at a boxing match, nowhere is safe from the boisterous lovemaking of Bridgerton's randy cast of characters."

Touching on this, Van Dusen said they always aimed to balance this bonking with good old fashioned romance.

He said: "I think that Netflix really afforded us with an amazing level of creative freedom, and they were so supportive and so encouraging of the vision from the very beginning.

"We never shied away from the fact that this is a show inspired by eight really delicious romance novels, and that sex was always going to be a part of the show, and the steaminess and the sensuality is balanced by the romance.

"As much as we're steamy and sexy, we're also unapologetically romantic at times. I think that it's that balance that I really love about the show, that we're able to do both things."
