The book has been optioned by Berlanti Productions

In an article released by Variety, it's been announced the television producer Greg Berlanti has officially optioned the book for the production of a future television show.

Berlanti is currently on the search for a showrunner to oversee the development and production of the series before he plans on pitching it to television networks.

If all goes smoothly and the show is given the green light to go into production, it will be joining quite the lineup of fellow shows such as "Riverdale," "Arrow," and "Supergirl," all of which have been produced by Berlanti Productions as well. With no lack of a potential audience, it's safe to say that the potential television show has quite the future ahead of it.

Fans will be eager to see the expansion of the franchise

The novel, which was released in 2017 by HarperCollins, is based around a 17th century bisexual British Lord who embarks on an adventure throughout Europe accompanied by his biracial best friend and his sister.

Due to the amount of representation that the book offers, it's no surprise that so many readers have taken a liking to the story that unfolds and the characters that are developed. The book - written by author Mackenzi Lee - has racked up an impressive 4.16-star rating on the book website GoodReads.

Whilst we don't know further details on when the show is planning to go into production and when it'll be released, we do know that there are a lot of fans who are in support of the expansion and continuation of the franchise which has become somewhat of a cult favorite.

Don't worry if you can't wait, though. The sequel to the book, entitled “The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy,” is set to be published in October and should tide you over until further details of the show's production are released.
