"Bridgerton" fans have something to look forward to very soon.

The series, which debuted on Netflix on Christmas Day, has quickly become a smash hit and was deemed the "fifth biggest original series launched to date" by the streamer earlier this month.

Now, Netflix is prepared to keep the show's fans satisfied with a special announcement by the end of the week.

"This title has proven immensely popular and we’ll have some exciting news about 'Bridgerton' later this week," the company said in their fourth quarterly shareholder letter, per Deadline.

Netflix previously said "Bridgerton" was well on its way to being watched by 63 million households in its first 28 days on the platform.

The outlet said that renewal is expected.

The series, executive produced by Shonda Rhimes, is based on a series of eight books and follows the respected Bridgerton family during London's Regency era, specifically the close-knit siblings' pursuits in romance.

Showrunner Chris Van Dusen has openly discussed the show's potential for a long run on Netflix.
