Dearest gentle reader, Netflix’s hit period drama, Bridgerton, will be back with its highly anticipated third season sooner now than ever now that the SAG-AFTRA strike is officially over.
With this season, Bridgerton will bring a fresh twist to the Regency romance saga. We have already watched two Bridgerton siblings find the love of their lives following two different romantic paths. Now it’s time for Lady Whistledown herself to do some bodice-ripping of her own.
After the success of the first two seasons, the next instalment is set to explore the love story between Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington. So, yes, Polin season is almost upon us!
As we eagerly await the release of Birdgerton season three, here’s a comprehensive rundown of what we know so far.
What is Bridgerton season three about?
Unlike the sequential adaptation of Julia Quinn’s novels in the first two seasons, Bridgerton season three takes a significant detour this season. Season three will be focusing on the fourth book, Romancing Mister Bridgerton.
The story revolves around the third Bridgerton sibling, Colin and the witty Penelope. After the events of season two, Penelope, revealed to be the mysterious Lady Whistledown to her dearest friend Eloise, navigates the challenges of seeking a husband while maintaining her secret identity to the world.
Colin, missing Penelope’s company, offers to assist her, leading to unexpected consequences. The season promises a mix of scandalous love affairs and drama. Nicola Coughlan and Bridgerton intimacy coordinator Lizzy Talbot have already teased fans with “furniture-breaking” romps heading our way.
