In its first full year of operation, the TGV extension to Bordeaux has been quite successful. SNCF is now looking at expanding the service to Belgium and perhaps even to London:

A new report on the Paris-Bordeaux high-speed train line has confirmed that 25% of the line’s traffic now comes from SNCF’s low-cost TGV (train à grande vitesse) service, Ouigo; and that the number of passengers was higher than initial estimates had predicted (3.7 million in 2018, compared to the 3.5 million estimated).

TGV use in France has also grown by 15% over the same time, SNCF said.
