Will Bridgerton Run For the Planned Eight Seasons?

What am I, a crystal ball? Well, no, but I am a trained media professional and I have some insight into what the future of Bridgerton, Netflix’s period romance hit, might look like. In a recent interview, Bridgerton showrunner Chris Van Dusen told Collider: “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.” So will we be getting seven more seasons of Bridgerton, culminating in a final season that sees little Gregory find love? Well, yes… if all goes according to plan. And given that Bridgerton has already been greenlit through Season 4, we’re basically already halfway there.

Will Bridgerton Get Eight Seasons?

As any avid fan knows, the continuation of a TV show is first and foremost dependent on its capacity to make money for a network/platform and studio that produces and/or distributes it. Game of Thrones didn’t get eight seasons because it had a story to tell; it got eight seasons because the show made lots of money for HBO. If Bridgerton continues to be popular on Netflix, encouraging people to subscribe and or continue to subscribe to the paid platform, then it will continue to get future seasons.

Notably, Bridgerton didn’t just do well domestically in the U.S. and the U.K., but also around the world. According to Fortune, Bridgerton was Netflix’s top show in 76 countries, and reached the top 10 in every country other than Japan. This matters as Netflix looks to further expand its global presence. As discussed previously here, 73% of American households are estimated to have Netflix, which means that much of the company’s future growth is going to have to come in international markets. Shows that do well globally are going to have an edge.

What Would Eight Seasons of Bridgerton Look Like?

In terms of narrative structure, Bridgerton is well-positioned for eight seasons. Cleverly, Shondaland chose as source material a series with a respectable number of installments (not too few, not too many). Julia Quinn’s series has eight main stories, each focusing on a different member of the Bridgerton family’s love life. In this way, the Bridgerton TV series has a way to remain fresh, while also keeping viewers in a world they already know and love. If Bridgerton followed the book, here is what the season-by-season breakdown would look like in terms of which Bridgerton finds love…
