‘Bridgerton’ season 3 takes surprising new twist, deviates from book order

Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington [Netflix Life]

According to multiple media outlets, the anticipated new season will focus on the love story of Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington aka Lady Whistledown. The upcoming season, interestingly, strays from Julia Quinn's book order which focuses on Penelope and Colin in the fourth book.

Quinn's third book centres on the second 'Bridgerton' son, Benedict. Recall that the character made memorable features in season two on his journey of self discovery.

Recall that season's two finale ended with Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) dashing off heartbroken after overhearing Colin (Luke Newton) say he would never marry her.

The third season is set to detail, in 'Bridgerton' style, how Colin comes to the realization that Penelope is his true love. Previous seasons one and two featured dramatic plots based on the love stories of Daphne Bridgerton’s (Phoebe Dynevor), Simon (Regé-Page Jean) and Anthony Bridgerton’s (Jonathon Bailey) and Kate (Simone Ashley) respectively.
