‘Bridgerton’ Season 3 Will Comply with Penelope and Colin’s Love Story (Not Benedict and Sophie’s!)

It appears Benedict Bridgerton (Luke Thompson) must wait just a little longer to fulfill his seductive Cinderella-esque muse, Sophie. Woman Whistledown herself, Nicola Coughlan, confirmed final evening that Bridgerton Season 3 will concentrate on Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton). Whereas that information may come as a shock to some Bridgerton e book readers, we at Decider have been calling this storyline shake up for some time now. None apart from Shonda Rhimes herself teased that the present could be going out of order from the books going ahead and the romance with essentially the most arrange already in place already is #Polin. And now Netflix has formally confirmed that Bridgerton Season 3 would be the “Romancing Mr. Bridgerton” season…

So sure, Bridgerton Season 3 will probably be about Penelope and Colin. (Duh.) However what does this imply for the present going ahead? How a lot will the general Bridgerton saga have to vary? And does this imply we received’t meet the chic Sophie Beckett subsequent season??? Right here’s every little thing it’s essential learn about Bridgerton Season 3 in gentle of this massive, apparent announcement…

So Bridgerton Season 3 will concentrate on Penelope and Colin??

Whereas the primary two seasons of Bridgerton caught fairly near Julia Quinn’s novels — focusing first on Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) after which on Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) — Season 3 is formally going to leapfrog previous Benedict’s Ebook 3 love story straight into Penelope and Colin’s romance in Ebook 4.

Now this shake up shouldn’t come as an enormous shock to hardcore Bridgerton followers. Not solely did producer Shonda Rhimes tease in a March interview that the present could be taking part in quick and free with the story order going ahead, but in addition the present itself has mainly given us the entire first act of Colin and Penelope’s e book already. Positive, we haven’t seen the precise second when Pen fell arduous for Colin, however every little thing from their friendship to his horrific slight has been dramatized on display.

So, yeah, prepare for Colin to lastly see the apparent subsequent season: that Pen is sizzling and sizzling for him.

When Decider spoke to Bridgerton stars Luke Newton and Nicola Coughlan not too long ago, they have been each excited (however nervous) in regards to the prospect of changing into the present’s key couple.

“Having that decision [about Bridgerton‘s renewal for Seasons 3 and 4] felt like probably the most life-changing telephone calls, truly. To be like, we’re positively doing it,” Newton mentioned. “For me, it was like, ‘Wow, that is the primary time I’ll be main a present of this scale. That’s psychological!’”

“It’s terrifying the prospect of it being about Penelope and Colin as a result of we’ve been there because the starting and we’ve all the time recognized it was gonna be their relationship,” Coughlan mentioned. “I’m very grateful it’s Luke that I’m occurring that journey with. He’s so candy. And I feel that this season they’ve progressed their relationship so fantastically that I’m actually rooting for them to get collectively. So I hope the viewers will probably be, too.”

Okay, however what about SOPHIE?

Will Sophie Beckett Be in Bridgerton Season 3?

The one draw back to the information that Bridgerton is fast-tracking Penelope and Colin’s love story is it signifies that candy, artsy Benedict must wait to fulfill his one real love. Whereas the present left Benedict in a rut on the finish of Season 2, it appears he won’t meet his mysterious silver goddess at a masquerade in Season 3…or will he?

Whereas Bridgerton Season 3 is formally Pen and Colin’s story, that doesn’t essentially imply that we received’t meet the unbelievable Sophie Beckett. Ebook readers will know that Sophie is an Earl’s bastard, raised as his ward till his dying. Then her (actually evil) stepmother retains her as a maid, abusing her to satisfy a stipulation within the Earl’s will. (The Earl imagined that Sophie would proceed to dwell as a ward and never a servant, however depraved stepmothers be depraved.) So Sophie exists within the background of Bridgerton‘s Regency world till the evening of a masked ball at Bridgerton home. The servants who know and love Sophie costume her up in her grandmother’s previous 18th century apparel, which makes her appear like a silver-clad princess. Benedict is instantly besotted with Sophie, however by no means will get her title. Their love story picks up just a few years later when Benedict saves a pleasant maid from the undesirable attentions of her asshole employer…

So I assume what I’m getting at is don’t essentially count on to fulfill Sophie in Bridgerton Season 3. But it’s completely potential the present will introduce a brilliant cool maid character who will get to shine in a season finale masked ball?? Thereby organising Season 4?? Hey, it’s not wild to imagine Bridgerton goes to be juggling storylines in Season 3. We’ve already met the person Eloise (Claudia Jessie) is destined to marry and the Francesca (Ruby Stokes/Hannah Dodd) recasting means we would meet her suitors sooner reasonably than later.

However the lengthy and wanting it’s Bridgerton Season 3 goes to be primarily based on Bridgerton Ebook 4, Romancing Mr. Bridgerton. Sophie must wait just a little longer within the scullery.
