Queen Charlotte boss discusses the possibility of a second season
Queen Charlotte creator Shonda Rhimes has opened up about the possibility of a follow-up season for the Bridgerton spin-off, saying there have been "questions" but not "conversations" about a potential season two.
Queen Charlotte is a prequel series spin-off to Netflix's Bridgerton, which Rhimes also created, and follows the titular character's rise to power as well her relationship with George III.
The series is a limited one for the time being, consisting of six episodes, but Rhimes spoke about a possible season two with Entertainment Weekly.

"There have been questions, but I'm not having conversations about it yet. I could live with Charlotte and George forever, but we told a very specific, closed-ended story that I think is a complete tale of this complicated, imperfect love," Rhimes said.
"But I'm not ruling anything out because I never know."
Rhimes isn't the only one who has thought about a potential season two. Lady Danbury actress Arsema Thomas said that she is "obsessed" with her character.

"I never thought I could love like this until I had my own child. I feel like I gave birth, and Shonda Rhimes is her daddy. I am the mommy. It would be amazing to inhabit that space again," Thomas said.
"But also where we've left her off now, she's a good space. If that's the last time I get to be her, she's empowered and she's ready to walk on her own two feet. But if I do get a call for doing it again, I will take it."
Bridgerton seasons 1-2 are streaming now on Netflix. Season 3 is in production. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is due to premiere on May 4, 2023.
