'Bridgerton' Season 3 Is Officially Focusing on This Couples' Love Story

We finally know which couple Bridgerton’s hotly anticipated third season will focus on. Posh Regency-era drumroll pls: Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington! Per Deadline, this extremely important news was announced during a Netflix panel on Sunday in Los Angeles.

“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,” Nicola Coughlan said. “I have kept that secret since two weeks into season 2. This is the first time I am saying it here.”

Yessssss.

Note: There’s been some speculation that Benedict would be the next Bridgerton sibling to be featured, but news that next season will focus on Polin isn’t actually that surprising if you’ve been paying attention (read: obsessively reading every piece of Bridgerton news that drops).

Executive Producer Shonda Rhimes hinted that things could get shaken up during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying “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.”

And executive producer Chris Van Dusen noted, when asked why they might not go in the same order as the books, that “I think it depends on story and it always comes down to character for me. I think we do a lot of work in these first two seasons to set up characters in these future seasons and every one of these siblings is going to eventually carry their own season so it’s important to flesh out these characters and set them up for success.”
