Nicola Coughlan has confirmed some exciting Bridgerton news!
The actress, who stars as Penelope Featherington on the hit Netflix series, has announced that Season 3 will focus on Penelope’s relationship with Colin Bridgerton (played by Luke Newton).
“Like Lady Whistledown, I’ve been keeping quite a big secret for quite a long time…. but I can finally tell you that @bridgertononnetflic Season Three is Colin and Penelope’s Story,” she writes on Instagram. The news was also confirmed by Nicola at a Netflix panel held over the weekend.
You’ll remember the first two seasons followed the first two novels by author Julia Quinn which focused on the lives of Daphne Bridgerton and the Duke of Hastings, and then Anthony Bridgerton’s romance with Kate Sharma.
Benedict Bridgerton’s story should be up next going by the books – but clearly we can’t get enough of #Polin and the TV show’s creators are giving us what we want!
In other Season 3 news, it was revealed earlier this week that Francesca Bridgerton will be played by Hannah Dodd, taking over the role from Ruby Stokes who has left to pursue another Netflix series, Lockwood & Co.
We don’t have a release date yet but in the meantime, you can check out the book series by Julia Quinn HERE.
