Bridgerton Seasons 3 and 4 Update: Without any doubt, ‘Bridgerton’ can be said to be one of the most popular tv series of recent times. The romantic series filled with lavish elegant decorations and style and royalty everywhere has very quickly won the heart of millions of fans.
Based on the novel collection of Julia Quinn, Chris Van has created this American historical romance series that is set in the Regency era of London. The plot revolves around the Bridgerton family as the marriageable siblings of that powerful and noble family as they set on their journey of finding love.
The first season released on December 25, 2020, focused upon the love story of the eldest Bridgerton daughter Daphne and the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset.
The second season which aired on March 25, 2022, revolved around the love story of the eldest son of the Bridgerton family Anthony, and a spinster who arrived from India named Kate. In the original novels of Quinn, at first, the story of Daphne is told before the stories of the other siblings in an alphabetical manner. If this chronology is followed, the third season will focus on Benedict Bridgerton.
