Bridgerton season 2 was released on Netflix after eighteen months after season 1. The show focuses on the story of Anthony Bridgerton and is based on the book “The viscount who loved me” by Julia Quinn. Season 2 of the show broke all the records on the streaming platform and became the most-watched series on the platform.
Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date
Bridgerton Season 2 received the same love and appreciation from fans as the season 1 of the show. Netflix has decided to renew the show for Season 3 and 4. Netflix shared the news on its official Twitter account.
Shonda Rhimes, the producer of the show, shared her thoughts about the series’s future, saying:
This two-season pickup is a strong vote of confidence in our work and I feel incredibly grateful to have partners as collaborative and creative as Netflix. Betsy [Beers] and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue bringing the world of Bridgerton to a worldwide audience,”
Bridgerton Season 3 is expected to release on Netflix in the summer or spring of 2023.
Season 2 of the series had a happy ending. Kate Sharma and Anthony Bridgerton got together at Featherington ball. However, things also got bad between best friends Eloise and Penelope after Penelope found Eloise’s secret. Penelope also ended things between her and Theo. Kate’s sister Edwina and her mother will also appear in season 3. Queen Charlotte revealed that she wants to set up her nephew with Edwina.
However, if the creators are going to follow the order of the books, they might follow the next book which is “An offer from the Gentleman”. The next book will follow Benedict Bridgerton and Sophie Beckett’s story.
However, Shonda Rhimes shared in an interview with ET that they might not follow the order of the books:
“There are eight Bridgerton siblings, so we’re planning on following each one of the siblings’ romantic stories. We’re not necessarily going in order but we are going to be seeing each of the siblings and their stories.”
Fans of the show want to see Eloise’s story in season 3 but her story is quite different from the books. We might have to wait till season 4 or 5 to see her story. Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anothony Bridgerton on the show said this during an interview about Eloise’s story;
“I can’t wait to walk Eloise down the aisle for so many reasons, Partly because, if there’s ever going to be another character that has a bigger arc as Anthony, in terms of having to overcome psychological warfare, it’s going to be Eloise.”
Will Kate and Anthony return for Bridgerton Season 3?
Fans loved Kate and Anthony in season 2. They want more of the characters in the season as well. However, Simone Ashley who plays Kate Sharma in the series revealed at a Netflix dinner that both Kate and Anthony will return for season 3. She said this during the interview;
“We’re going to be back! We have the amazing Jess Brownell who is taking the lead as showrunner in Season 3. In Season 2, there was a lot of push and pull between Kate and Anthony, there were complications with the family, and then they find each other towards the end. I think everything is just starting. I’d like to see Kate just let go a bit more and play more in Season 3 and kind of swim in that circle of love together. I think they both deserve it.”
