The journey to finding love for the eight close-knit siblings of the Bridgerton family has been extended, as Netflix has renewed the England regency era TV series for two more seasons.
The executive producer of the TV show, Chris van Dusen, took to Twitter to announce that the series will be renewed for season 3 and season 4.

Bridgerton has added four actors to Season 2:

Van Dusen also shared with his Twitter followers how privileged he felt to have written the Duke of Hastings for the series and how thankful he is for the love that the fans have given the character throughout the first season of the show.
Writing the Duke of Hastings for this series has been a true privilege and I’ll forever cherish His Grace’s #Bridgerton reign. Thank you to the fans for embracing him and to @regejean for bringing him to life in such beautifully moving and memorable ways. #TheDukeIsForever???????????? pic.twitter.com/6Pjh2i4bdj

The Duke of Hastings, played by Rege-Jean Page, will not be returning to Bridgerton, over some “creative differences” with creative producer Shonda Rhimes, as he was not particularly happy with what the producers had planned for his character in the second season.
