It's official: Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is now officially one of Netflix's most popular English-language television series of all time.

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story tells the story of Charlotte who, betrothed to the mysterious King of England against her will, she arrives in London only to realize she was not exactly what the royals were expecting. As she learns to navigate the palace, the 'ton, and her unpredictable husband, she grows into one of Europe's most unforgettable monarchs.

Will There Be a Season 2 of Queen Charlotte?

With the show being as wildly popular has it has been, fans have certainly been wondering if there will be a second season of the series. While the show was meant to be a limited series, Rhimes has previously said she's not entirely ruling out the possibility of a second season.

"There have been questions, but I'm not having conversations about it yet," Rhimes said coyly. "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. But I'm not ruling anything out because I never know."

"You know I'm really excited to tell these stories in two timelines," Rhimes said during a trailer event for Queen Charlotte. "It makes it more special. You can see how the stories from the past influence the future." She added, "One of the reasons for why I wanted to delve into the past of these women. A lot of romance stories don't delve into the lives of woman of a certain age. So, I think that will be a treat for viewers."
