Will there be a series two of Belgravia?
ITV have yet to confirm whether they’ll be a second instalment of the drama. Julian himself however, did explain the possibility of more episodes. Speaking to HELLO! and other reporters at the series launch earlier this year, the writer discussed the prospect of a second series. He explained: “For me, this is a completed story. Although whenever I say this to any of the actors, they disagree with me violently, so I’m not sure that we know that definitive answer to that really. We’ll have to see if anyone wants anymore.”

How did Belgravia end?
The story of Charles Pope and his connection to the Brockenhurst and Trenchard family has gripped viewers from the start and luckily the story was tied up at the end. After finding out who Charles Pope was really was, John Bellasis hatched a fatal plan to ensure that he remained the rightful heir to his uncle’s estate, planning to kill Charles Pope and James Trenchard. However, Oliver Trenchard then went to Charles’ and his father’s aid just in time. Eventually it was revealed that Charles is the rightful heir and he was able to marry his true love, Lady Maria Grey. Despite this story ending neatly – the story between John Bellasis and Oliver Trenchard’s wife Susan (who’s pregnant with John’s child) continues, giving scope for a second series.
