Confirming the news we'd all been painfully waiting to hear, Netflix wrote: "DEAREST READERS, BREAKING NEWS... Bridgerton *will* return for a second season!"

In response to the tweet, one fan (who seems to be in character) wrote: "The most splendid of news," another added: "Lady Whistledown reporting!!! We want to know when."

Someone else commented: "I want a date now so I can take the day off work to watch it," now that's commitment.

In a follow up post, the streaming service shared a picture of Nicola Coughlan (otherwise known as Penelope Featherington amongst other things) on her phone behind the scenes.

It seems as well as the show's fans, it's cast are also delighted to be returning to our screens (at an unknown date) with Nicola Coughlan sharing a clip which says: "Dearest Viewers, this author is proud to announce #Bridgerton Season Two, expect much scandal indeed."

Phoebe Dynevor, who plays Daphne Bridgerton in the series, took to her Instagram stories and wrote: "We're going for round 2."

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."
