Perhaps we're stating the obvious, but we'd very much fancy a Queen Charlotte season 2.
The Bridgerton spinoff hit Netflix on Thursday, May 4, and since then, we've been enamored with Her Majesty (played by India Amarteifio) and King George III (Corey Mylchreest). Their romance, dare we say, has been the highlight of the Bridgerton world.
“It's a massive honor and such a special moment as a young Black woman, but also as an actor, to get to see it all happen and all come to life," Amarteifio told InStyle Australia.
Naturally, fans of the Regency romance series are in no way ready for the story to come to a close. So, what can we expect next?
Will there be a 'Queen Charlotte' season 2?
Since Queen Charlotte is a miniseries, it's unclear whether or not the story will continue on Netflix. But creator Shonda Rhimes is thoroughly pleased with the way the project turned out.
"I'm never satisfied when I make a show," she said at the premiere, according to People. "This is the first time ever that I've made a show that I've turned to Betsy [Beers, the producer] and I was like, 'If I retired tomorrow, I'd be fine.'"
But thankfully, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rhimes revealed that she isn't entirely closed off to continuing the royal couple's journey. Music to our ears!
"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," she told the outlet.
While yes, Queen Charlotte is real, Rhimes and Co. have taken liberties with the actual details, thus the creative options are truly endless. (And practically beg for another season.)
"Shonda has taken the real-life characters of Queen Charlotte and King George and has kind of Bridgerton-ified," Amarteifio told InStyle.
While this might not be a story we heard in history class, you can color us intrigued.
What would 'Queen Charlotte' season 2 be about?
Should the miniseries get a second installment, we're definitely working with plenty of cliffhangers. What happens with Brimsley, and did Reynolds pass away? And how does King George's illness progress?
There's still a lot of material to cover, in our opinion, and given that it's a fictional take on historical figures, who knows where the story could go next other than Rhimes?
"I just think Netflix and Shonda have a really good understanding of how to look after people and also understand what people want," Amarteifio further told InStyle. "People want the drama, they want the period pieces, they want the costumes, and Netflix and Shonda provide that."
