While the dates and locations have are not yet settled, representatives for both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders said they are planning on four additional debates, including one as-yet unsanctioned debate in New Hampshire, hosted by MSNBC and the Union-Leader newspaper.

Both Clinton and Sanders had earlier agreed to attend the Feb. 4 debate in New Hampshire, which falls just days ahead of the Granite State's Feb. 9 first-in-the-nation primary.

Separate negotiations between each campaign and the DNC are ongoing, according to BuzzFeed’s sources.

Martin O'Malley, the former governor of Maryland, has expressed his willingness to participate in any additional contests.

DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has repeatedly defended the party's limited debate schedule, and recently said she wanted to avoid the "explosion of debates" seen in the 2008 race.
