Bridgeton is one of the most watched shows on Netflix. Based on the bestselling book series by Julia Quinn, Bridgeton depicts friendship, love, family and romance in 19th-century Britain. The third season follows the romance between Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).
Bridgeton Fans should buckle up because the couple will have plenty of excitement in Season 3.
Although Penelope has been in love with Colin for years, by the end of season two she was devastated to hear him belittling her to his friends. Colin told his friends that he would never consider courting Penelope, which hurt her feelings and effectively ruined their friendship.
However, Netflix hasn’t revealed how much time will pass between the two Bridgeton The season 2 finale and the season 3 premiere, we know the couple will not be on good terms.
“Burmed to hear Colin slander her in front of his friends, Penelope is focused on finding a husband who will respect her independence so she can continue her double life as Lady Whistledown,” reports Deadline. “Colin is back from his summer travels and is disheartened to see Penelope’s cold shoulder. Eager to regain their friendship, Colin helps Penelope build her confidence to attract the perfect husband.”
Fans were actually stunned when they learned that Season 3 would be starring Penelope and Colin. So far, the Netflix series has followed the same order as Quinn’s novels.

However, for season 3, the events of book four, A romance with Mr. Bridgerton will be front and center and fans can expect plenty of excitement.
“I really feel like it’s time for Colin and Penelope,” new showrunner Jess Brownell told Variety. “Because we’ve been watching these two actors on our screens since Season 1, we’ve already invested a little in them. We know who they are as people.” She added,
As well as Penelope, Colin and their respective families, fans should expect to see some new faces Bridgeton Season 3. As fans know, at the end of Season 2, Penelope had a massive falling out with Eloise (Claudia Jessie) when Eloise discovered she was behind Lady Whistledown. To make matters worse, Penelope was involved in ruining Elosie’s reputation.
Now Penelope has to look elsewhere for friendship. It seems she might be able to find company with a newcomer, Lady Tilley Arnold (Hannah New). According to Deadline, Lady Tilley is “a fiery widow. Widowed at an early age, she enjoys the privilege and power that comes with being head of her ex-husband’s estate and living a life on her own terms with financial independence and sexual freedom.”
We think Lady Tilley could teach Penelope a lot about confidence.
