The third season of Bridgerton made quite a commotion, and it just joined the previous two chapters on Netflix’s Most Popular English-Language Series List. Executive producer Shonda Rhimes marked the joyous occasion by telling the fans this regency drama would go on for years to come.

Season 3 of Bridgerton entered the list at No. 10 with 91.90 million views halfway through its initial 91-day window, pushing Baby Reindeer out. It joins the show’s first season, which holds the No. 4 spot with 113.30 million views, and Season 2 at No. 9 with 93.80 million views.

Executive producer Shonda Rhimes said they’re grateful for the incredible response Bridgerton has received from fans all around the globe after Season 3 entered Netflix’s list.

“Shondaland is so proud that audiences far and wide have connected with our storytelling and the Bridgerton world we have built. We look forward to bringing more of this beloved universe to screens for years to come,” said Rhimes in a statement.

Bridgerton has been renewed for Season 4 all the way back in 2021, but Netflix is yet to officially announce which Bridgerton sibling will be at this center. Season 1 chronicled the courtship between Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and Duke Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page), Season 2 captured the enemies-to-lovers story between Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley), while Season 3 saw the friendship between Colin (Luke Newton) and Penelope Bridgerton (Nicola Coughlan) blossom into a romance.
