Belgravia has only been on our screens for a few weeks, but already there is talk of a second series. The show's writer and creator, Julian Fellowes, recently spoke about the prospect of a second instalment, and said, "we'll have to see". Speaking to HELLO! and other reporters at an exclusive launch and Q&A for the drama earlier this month, Julian explained that the premise of the period drama, which is based on his novel of the same name, is a finished plot.

"For me, this is a completed story," he began, adding: "Although whenever I say this to any of the actors, they disagree with me violently." The writer, who is also known for his shows Downton Abbey and Netflix's The English Game, continued: "So, I'm not sure that we know that definitive answer to that really. We'll have to see if anyone wants anymore [episodes]."

The show begins with the now legendary Duchess of Richmond's ball on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo, which marks the beginning of a series of events involving Anne and James Trenchard's daughter Sophia and her lover Edmund's illegitimate marriage.
Some thirty years later, the Trenchards cross paths with another high-society family, the Brockenhursts, and discover they share a history. The Trenchards are still keen to keep secrets and protect their image and status, but there are others that threaten reputation and status, if the secrets are unravelled.
Belgravia continues on Sunday at 9pm on ITV.
