From what we have heard so far, season 3 is going to be an emotional rollercoaster. But there are still secrets that other characters could yet reveal too.
We’re excited for the second season of Bridgerton to be released in March, 2022. There’s lots of news about season 3 coming. For example, we know who the main love interests will be and have heard from actors and actresses about their hopes for their characters and the future of the show.
While some of the decisions for season three have been controversial, fans are impatient to see what will happen next with their favourite characters and are already fan casting for new characters.
Until the third season airs, we have already learned a lot about Bridgerton. Here are some answers to questions that will be on everyone’s mind.
Bridgerton season 3 Plot
The third season will focus on the romance between Nicola’s character, Penelope Featherington, played by Nicola Coughlan, and Luke Newton’s character, Colin Bridgerton, according to recent reports from Netflix. Though it was confirmed by Jess Brownell and Netflix that the showrunners are diverting from the story of her books (Benedict is Quinn’s third novel), some fans are not happy with the change.
After six seasons of serving as the show’s static voice, Jess Brownell told Variety that it was the perfect time for a change in leadership. “We know who they are as people” – referring to Colin and Penelope – “In this past season there are moments of tension.” It felt like the perfect moment to stand up.
What will happen to Eloise and Penelope?
Lady Whistledown, a book that Eloise wrote obsessively for the first two seasons only felt real to her during those seasons. In book three she followed Penelope’s lead and wrote about a story that was inspired by interviews she did with the characters.
To make matters worse, Penelope uncovered the inappropriate relationship between Eloise and Theo, putting her in a scandalous spotlight with the Queen. Penelope claims she did it to protect Eloise from the Queen, but that was not enough by the ball’s end of last when she saw them.
While creator Claudia Jessie admitted that Eloise will likely be feeling very “low” and “lonely” at the beginning of season three, she was hopeful for a bright future for the best friends in a recent chat with Awards Daily: “It’s an integral moment for both Eloise and Penelope for their friendship,” she said. “I think it’ll only get better once they have had this time apart for Eloise to prioritize her focus.”
What will happen to Benedict?
With the change in focus, many fans were sure that season three would be Benedict’s, but book 3 seems to narrate his story. Season 3 looks like it will switch focus to Colin and Penelope which should be interesting but who will win out; Benedict or his second eldest brother, Colin? As all we saw of him at the end of season 2 was a crossroad with his creative passions.
Simone revealed to Deadline that she would like to see character of Kate being much braver, less headstrong and more heart strong.
The happy ending of season two was also important to the show’s success
Bridgerton season 3 Cast
We’ll definitely be seeing Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton again in season three. In fact, season three is about Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton.
With Jess Brownell declaring that Benedict will have “a very vital role” in season three of Downton Abbey and with Luke Tompson’s return home, we are assuming he and his family, the Bridgertons, will be returning.
Ruby Stokes will not be returning after scheduling conflicts. The actress, who previously played Francesca Bridgerton, has been replaced by Hannah Dodd.
Bridgerton season 3 Release Date
Francesca’s character will be replaced by Hannah Dodd in Season 3. The next season will be released in the coming year.
The third installment of the show is set to be released in early 2023; there has been no confirmation yet.
Despite many rumors, Netflix has confirmed that there will be a fourth season for Bridgerton. In April 2021, they tweeted the news with certainty and excitement.
