Bridgerton Season 3 - What We Know So Far

When "Bridgerton" premiered its first season on Netflix in December of 2020, the Regency-era romantic drama series became an instant hit with viewers. Based on the books by Julia Quinn and developed for television by Chris Van Dusen, Season 1 follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) as she meets and falls in love with the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) — a man who had previously declared he would never marry (via IMDb). After the show's massive success, it came as no surprise that Netflix would move forward with Season 2.

Each season focuses on a different Bridgerton sibling's love story, with Season 2 turning to Daphne's older brother — and the eldest Bridgerton — Anthony (Jonathan Bailey). Following his failed romance with opera singer Siena Rosso (Sabrina Bartlett) in Season 1, Anthony is determined to find a suitable wife who is smart and capable, but who he is not in love with. He sets his sights on Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran), declaring her the perfect candidate for a wife — only to find himself falling in love with Edwina's sister Kate (Simone Ashley).

Much to the delight of the show's many fans, "Bridgerton" has already been renewed for not just its 3rd, but also its 4th season (via Deadline). With Season 2 having been out for a couple of weeks, fans are already thinking about the next season of the beloved series and wanting to know everything about the next Bridgerton love story. Here's what we know so far about Season 3.

Bridgerton Season 3 will likely focus on Benedict's love story

If "Bridgerton" continues to follow the trajectory of the novels, then Season 3 will focus on the love story of the second eldest Bridgerton sibling, Benedict (Luke Thompson), who falls in love with a servant named Sophie Beckett in the third book, "An Offer from a Gentleman."

Season 3 will also likely continue with the storylines we saw play out in the sophomore season, such as the marriage of Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sharma. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Jonathan Bailey discussed what could be next for the pair: "There's going to be complication [ahead]. They're not simple people. I know they will work as a unit, and I know he'll be completely devoted to her, so I'm excited to see that and to explore [that] ... The payoff of the slow burn I think will continue for the years to come."

As for Charithra Chandran's Edwina, she's not yet been confirmed to return, but Chandran hopes to be able to see "excitement and adventure" for her character in future seasons (per THR). Meanwhile, Season 3 will explore the aftermath of Eloise (Claudia Jessie) finding out that her best friend Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) is the mysterious gossip writer Lady Whistledown. Coughland told THR, "I think she's fallen pretty much as low as she can get ... Whistledown's all she's got. I imagine it's going to be very interesting, where we see her starting off season three."

Stay tuned for updates on "Bridgerton" Season 3.
