Bridgerton Season 3: All About The New Season With A New Romance

Bridgerton Season 3 Update: A new season of one of the most beloved romantic series of recent times- ‘Bridgerton’ is on the way to arriving bringing a new pair brewing themselves in a growing romance.

After Simon – Daphne and Kate – Anthony it is now time to root for the sweet Penelope and the third Bridgerton son Colin. It is not very hard to assume that ‘Bridgerton’ is back with its ball dances and swelling chemistry in Season 3.

A Recap of the Season One:

The setting of ‘Bridgerton’ is the Regency era of London in which time marriageable young women were presented in society to be pursued by marriageable young men. Finding real love in that competitive ambiance was really hard.

But as the siblings of the Bridgerton family are prepared for that, some of them on the way fortuitously come across love. As did the eldest Bridgerton daughter Daphne in the first season when she met the Duke of Hastings- Simon Basset.

Though the season primarily focuses on Simon and Daphne’s maturing relationship, it also introduces the other Bridgerton sisters as well as other important characters like Penelope Featherington, Lady Danbury, and Queen Charlotte.

A Recap of the Season Two

Season two of ‘Bridgerton’ introduces the Sharma family of India. Kate Sharma wants to marry her step-sister Edwina Sharma off to a good match. Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, the eldest of the Bridgerton siblings court Edwina even though a spark clearly ignites between Kate and him.

Bridgerton Season 3

Their romance flourishes with intensity amidst the secrecy and the failed marriage of Anthony and Edwina. In this season Eloise Brierton, the second Bridgerton daughter and good friend of Penelope comes to discover that the latter is the mysterious author of a scandalous society newsletter which results in her ending her friendship with Penelope. Near the end of the last episode viewers also found Penelope overhearing Collin, the third Bridgerton son, saying that he would never court her, setting the stage for the new season.

Plot for Bridgerton Season 3:

The new season will focus primarily on Penelope and Collin as they develop their chemistry and romance. As most of the viewers know, ‘Bridgerton’ is adapted from the romance novel series by Julia Quinn.

The first and second seasons were based on the first two novels of the series- ‘The Duke and I’ and ‘The Viscount Who Loved Me’ respectively. But the third season will make an exception as it follows the story of not the third novel, but the fourth one.
