A fourth installment of the Bridget Jones series is currently in the works, as confirmed by the author Helen Fielding.

The film series follows Bridget - played by Renée Zellwegger, now 53 - and her eventful journey from attempting to find love in the opening film Bridget Jones's Diary, to questioning whether her newfound love is what she wants in Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason.

The most recent film entitled Bridget Jones's Baby was released in 2016, where she discovers she is pregnant but is not sure who the father is, per IMDb.

Fans of the clumsy character can get excited, as a fourth film is in the works according to author Helen Fielding, 64, who penned the original novels.

Speaking to RadioTimes, the author said: "Yes I’m working on it and I really hope it will happen. Every film that gets made is a miracle – it’s really difficult to make films happen and to make them good. But I’d love to see it on the screen."

A separate source told The Sun in July that a fourth movie was indeed being developed. They said: "There have been few more successful or more popular rom-com than Bridget Jones over the last couple of decades, but everyone thought this one was done for good."

"However the producers always knew there was a huge market for another sequel when the right story was available, and this feels like the right time to tell it," the source concluded.

The movies also star Colin Firth as an introverted lawyer, who ends up as (spoiler alert) the father of Bridget's child in the third movie.

Hugh Grant features in the first two installments as Daniel Cleaver but was only referenced in Bridget Jones's baby. However, his character could potentially return in any upcoming projects as it was teased during the conclusion of the latest movie that after he had supposedly died, he was actually found to be alive.

The Sun also reported that the first and third films were great critical successes but the second failed to receive similar acclaim.

The films grossed $1 billion in total at the box office.
