The streamer also teased a bit more about the new season during an adorable painting-themed interview as part of their fan event Tudum. In the clip after Colin and Eloise Bridgerton actors Luke Newton and Claudia Jessie paint each other’s portraits Coughlan appears with a copy of the script for season 3’s premiere and reads the first few lines of the episode.

Season 3’s premiere is titled Out of the Shadows written by new showrunner Jess Brownell and directed by Tricia Brock. It begins in the same tradition as seasons 1 and 2 with Lady Whistledown introducing a new social season We’ve been apart for far too long. At last London’s smart set has made its return and so too has this author. As the season begins the question on everyone’s mind of course is which newly minted debutante will shine the brightest. The crop this year proves to be rather dazzling indeed. Unfortunately not every young lady can attract the light.

How did ‘Bridgerton’ season 2 end?
The finale saw Anthony and Kate as happy PDA-heavy newlyweds after they finally get together at the Featherington Ball. BFFs Eloise and Penelope are on the rocks after Eloise finally discovered the Lady Whistledown secret but in the end Penelope decided that it will be a long time before she puts down her quill. The intellectual also breaks things off with apprentice Theo because of a fear Penelope puts in her head.

Among the other storylines Benedict quits art school after discovering Anthony’s large donation got him in. Colin has a brief hero moment revealing Lord Featherington’s scam and then breaks Penelope’s heart when she overhears him telling his friends that he’d never court her. Kate’s sister Edwina and mom Mary will also be sticking around London with Queen Charlotte mentioning that she might set up Edwina with her nephew Prince Friedrich Freddie Stroma who wooed Daphne in season 1. And while Regé-Jean Page is not repeat not returning to the world of Bridgerton he’s open to the series recasting Simon. They’re free to do as they like he told Variety opens in new tab. He also revealed he isn’t yet caught up on the second season months after its release on Netflix—ouch

Which Julia Quinn book will ‘Bridgerton’ season 3 be based on?
If we’re following the order of Quinn’s series the next novel would be An Offer From a Gentleman opens in new tab a Cinderella-esque story of Benedict’s love story with Sophie Beckett an earl’s daughter forced into servitude by her hateful stepmother. For anyone confused why the next leading Bridgerton wouldn’t be a woman the order of the books started with Daphne then follows the children in alphabetical/age order Anthony Benedict Colin Eloise Francesca Hyacinth Gregory. However the Netflix show has decided to star another sibling earlier than expected. During a panel conversation at Netflix’s FYSEE event Coughlan revealed that next season will follow Colin and Penelope’s romance which will be complicated by Penelope’s activities as Lady Whistledown and her falling out with Eloise. Like Lady Whistledown I have been keeping a secret for quite some time and I can confirm to you all that season 3 is Colin and Penelope’s love story she said. I have kept that secret since two weeks into season 2.

Coughlan also spoke on the decision in a Tudum opens in new tab article saying that following Colin and Penelope’s story a season earlier makes sense. I feel like if you see Penelope fawning over this boy for another season you’ll be like ‘Get it together Come on move on and get over it’ she said. Jess has talked to Luke and I through the season and I think people are going to be really obsessed. I think book fans are going to be happy. When asked about how sexy season three would be—super-sexy like season one; or more chaste like season two—Coughlan said: We’ve had two seasons of build up it’s probably going to be the former.

New showrunner Jess Brownell elaborated in an interview with Variety: I really feel like it’s Colin and Penelope’s time. Because we’ve been watching both of these actors on our screens since Season 1 we’ve already invested in them a little bit. We know who they are as people…Instead of treading water on that dynamic we wanted to push it into their season. It really felt like the perfect moment to tee it up. Though this is a surprise for fans of the Bridgerton books the show’s creative team has hinted in recent interviews that it doesn’t have to follow the same path. In an Entertainment Tonight opens in new tab interview Rhimes alluded that the show doesn’t have to follow the order of the books. There’s eight Bridgerton siblings so we’re planning on following each one of the siblings’ romantic stories. We’re not necessarily going in order but we are going to be seeing each of the siblings and their stories.

The official deviation from the book order means that anything goes for future seasons assuming that Netflix will definitely renew its biggest hit. Season 4 could go back to Benedict’s love story or maybe have another Bridgerton sister be the lead. In that case Eloise could be up sooner than the book order or maybe Francesca who’s set for a bigger role in Season 3. In an interview with E Jonathan Bailey noted that he’s looking forward to Eloise’s season. I can’t wait to walk Eloise down the aisle for so many reasons he said. Partly because if there’s ever going to be another character that has a bigger arc as Anthony in terms of having to overcome psychological warfare it’s going to be Eloise. Speaking to The Wrap he added of Anthony in season 3: It’s really important to be there because obviously [Anthony’s] the older bro but to make space and to make sure that they have their amazing sweeping love story as well.
