The long awaited season 3 of Bridgerton is finally here! The last season having come out December of 2020, fans have certainly been waiting and have high expectations. Early May it was revealed that this season would diverge from the book series by centering Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) and Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) rather than Sophie Beckett and Benedict Bridgerton from the fourth book An Offer from a Gentleman. 

While some say the 2 part release has left the plot feeling rushed, most have taken the change quite well. Fans are enthusiastic that the ‘wallflower’ Penelope who has been pining over Colin for 2 seasons will finally get the friends to lovers romance she deserves. 

At the end of season 2, Penelope has her heart broken by Colin when she overhears him saying he would never dream of courting her. She has not only no prospects but no friends when Eloise discovers that Penelope is Lady Whistledown, the pamphlet gossiper who published a story revealing Eloise’s secret tryst with the lower class political radical Theo Sharp. Penelope only wanted to protect Eloise from dangerous radicals and from being falsely convicted by Queen Charlotte for being lady Whistledown. Viewers certainly hope they can reconcile their friendship this season. 

“Polin” is not the only romance blooming this season. Francesca Bridgerton has been thrust into a love triangle with Lord Samadni from Vienna, a match hand picked by the Queen, and John Sterling Lord of Kilmartin who shares her love of music. Benedict Bridgerton all the while is having a secret primarily physical engagement with the widowed lady Till Arnold and the producers have introduced a new character Lord Marcus Anderson, brother of Lady Danburry, to accompany the Bridgertons mother Violet. 

With so much going on this season, Bridgerton fans cannot wait to see what happens in part 2!
