More Kate Sharma or I’ll make a scene.
Kate and Anthony will be back.
And Daphne too!
Season 3 will focus on the relationship between Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington and it will be based on Romance with Mr. Bridgerton Julia Quinn.
This means the show no longer officially follows the order of the books.
The plan, according to Shonda Rhimes, is for the series to get down to every sibling’s love story and have eight seasons so there’s no need to worry about Benedict.
Even though he won’t be starring in Season 3, Benedict will still be important.
At some point, Penelope and Eloise will talk about their big fight at the end of Season 2.
Filming has already begun!
The cast read at least the first two episodes, and Nicola Coughlan said she knew the plan for the entire season.
Penelope is about to officially start the season by giving up her crush on Colin Bridgerton.
As for Colin, he will be disappointed to find that Penelope treats him coldly when he returns from his travels.
The book contains several references to how Penelope lost weight, but the show (fortunately) does not have this storyline.
We have a new Francesca Bridgerton!
The series introduced several new characters, starting with Daniel Francis as Marcus Anderson, “a charismatic man who lights up any room he enters.”
Sam Philips will play Lord Debling, a lord with “eccentric interests (and enough wealth to be overlooked by anyone).”
And James Foon will appear as Harry Dankworth, a man who isn’t smart but makes up for it with his “serious looks.”
We can expect the show to return at some point in 2023.
And finally, Rare-Jean Page will NOT be returning to the show, despite initial rumors to the contrary.
