BRIDGERTON. A season 3 of “The Bridgerton Chronicle” is currently in the works on Netflix. Colin, Benedict, Eloise… Who will have the right to their love story in the sequel?
[Mis à jour le 6 avril 2022 à 9h28] Season 2 of The Bridgerton Chronicle just got out Netflix, but the production teams are already working on the sequel. Because a season 3, a season 4 and a spin-off focused on Queen Charlotte are currently in the works. At the moment, we do not know the release dates or the plots of each of these suites, since they have not yet been formalized by the creative teams. Filming for season 3 should begin in the summer of 2022, with it expected to premiere in 2023. But Netflix has yet to formalize the dates.
AND The Bridgerton Chronicle follows the order of the Julia Quinn novels, we can expect that the romance between Benedict and Sophie, the illegitimate daughter of a viscount, will be at the heart of season 3. Shonda Rhimes, the producer, confided however that the order of the amorous intrigues of each of the Bridgertons could be turned upside down. So it’s not impossible that season 3 will focus on Colin and Penelope, or a romance between Eloise and Theo, which started in season 2.
If we know that the Bridgerton family will return for a season 3, that’s all we know for the moment about this sequel. The return date of The Bridgerton Chronicle In fact, season 3 is not yet known. According to Nicola Coughlan, filming should start in the summer of 2022. Therefore, we can expect a release a few months later, most likely in 2023.
If Netflix decides to follow the chronology of the books, season 3 of The Bridgerton Chronicle It should refer to the romance between Benedict, who will fall in love with Sophie Beckett, the illegitimate daughter of an earl. However, Shonda Rhimes had announced that the series would not necessarily follow the chronology of the novels: “There are eight Bridgerton children, so we plan to follow the romantic histories of each one of them. However, we are not necessarily going to follow the order of the books, but each one will have their story, “he assured Entertainment Tonight. Indeed, the romance between Colin and Penelope is already beginning to be told in season 2, while Eloise approaches Theo. However, they are only the protagonists of the fourth and fifth novels, therefore potentially season 4 and 5. Unless there is a change of order in the chronology of the series, we are still waiting for confirmation from Netflix for more information.
Which actors will be in the cast of The Bridgerton Chronicle season 3? Barring last-minute changes, all the main characters, that is, the Bridgerton family and the Featheringtons in particular, and all those introduced in the first season, should return for this sequel. Simone Ashley (Kate Sharma) has also confirmed that she will return and that the marriage between her and Anthony’s characters will continue to play out in the plot. For now, we don’t know if Regé-Jean Page will still be absent from the series or if she will make inroads again. As a reminder, he does not appear in season 2, as the actor decided not to renew his contract.
Netflix subscribers will soon be entitled to a double dose of Bridgertons. At the same time that season 3 was confirmed, the platform of transmission announced that a season 4 was also in the works. For now, we don’t know its premiere date or its plot. If the order of the books is to be believed, the romance between Colin and Penelope must be explored in this barrage of episodes. But Shonda Rhimes has already announced that the series won’t necessarily follow the order of the Julia Quinn novels. Therefore, it is not impossible that the story of Benedict and Colin is reversed. However, we must wait for production confirmation before knowing more, especially since it seems difficult to imagine a release of The Bridgerton Chronicle season 4 before the year 2024.
the universe of The Bridgerton Chronicle is infinitely expandable given the large number of characters that appear in the first two seasons. Netflix has already announced that a Queen Charlotte spin-off is in the works. For now, the title of this event miniseries is unknown. We know, however, that this spin-off will be dedicated to the rise of the queen, and especially her love story with King George.

I can participate, I can contribute, and then the Bridgerton family moves on.” However, the actor is not replaced in the role of Simon during Season 2.
