Rejoice, good ladies, gentlemen, and distinguished guests! Spicy Regency romance Bridgerton will get a second season, Netflix announced Thursday.

Bridgerton is based on a series of romance novels by Julia Quinn, with each book following a different Bridgerton sibling. The first season (and book) followed Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the oldest Bridgerton daughter, and her romance with the aloof Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). The Shondaland drama debuted on Christmas Day.

If the show follows the books, then the second season will focus on eldest son Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey). At the end of the first season, his opera singer mistress Siena (Sabrina Bartlett) broke things off with him, since she realized they come from completely different worlds and would never be entirely happy. Gossip queen Lady Whistledown (aka Netflix’s Twitter account) did hint at an Anthony-focused season. Will Anthony and Siena reunite? Or will he find new love?

Netflix did not announce a release date, but said production will resume in 2021 in London.
