Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, the Regency drama Bridgerton’s executive producers, have hinted what viewers may anticipate from in the upcoming Season 3 of Bridgerton

Each season of Bridgerton follows a different member of the titular noble family as they navigate London high society in search of love. 

The show is based on Julia Quinn’s Regency-period romance novels of the same name. 

Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page played Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings, respectively, in the first season. 

Jonathan Bailey played Anthony in the second season, who was involved in a turbulent love triangle with the sisters Kate (Simone Ashley) and Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran).  

The third season of Bridgerton, which began filming earlier this year, will jump ahead and adapt Romancing Mister Bridgerton, the fourth book in Quinn’s series 

Although the youngest Featherington daughter has always had a crush on the Bridgerton guy, the series has so far shown Colin and Penelope as childhood friends.  

The two are anticipated to transition from being friends to lovers in Season 3. 

Rhimes and Beers hinted at Colin’s development and his romance with Penelope in season 3 in their new novel.

Newton, who plays Colin on the show, has something to say about Colin’s persona and obsession with standing out from his brothers.
