Here’s Why ‘Bridgerton’ Season 3 Is Skipping to Penelope and Colin’s Love Story

Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton stans, our time has come! Jess Brownell, the new show runner of Bridgerton season 3 as series creator Chris Van Dusen moves on to other projects, just revealed the thinking behind the surprise announcement that the upcoming season would focus on Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton’s romance, rather than following the book series and centering Benedict. Yep, Polin is happening. And it’s going to be so cute.

“I really feel like it’s Colin and Penelope’s time,” Brownell told Variety. “Because we’ve been watching both of these actors on our screens since season 1, we’ve already invested in them a little bit. We know who they are as people.”

Brownell continued, “I feel like, especially in the last season, there are these moments of tension between them where it’s like, Colin walks up to the line of almost realizing that Penelope has feelings for him but doesn’t quite get there. Instead of treading water on that dynamic, we wanted to push it into their season. It really felt like the perfect moment to tee it up.”

It’s true. Colin spent the first season pining for Marina Thompson and the second getting over her. Penelope, of course, has been reexamining her role in her family and in society as Lady Whistledown. These two characters are very well developed and primed for the spotlight!

Brownell also assured fans that characters like Daphne, Kate, Anthony, and Benedict will still be active in Bridgerton season 3, as it is an “ensemble show.” Just don’t expect Colin to suddenly get all broody. “I think of Colin and Pen as being characters who bring a lot of comedy to the show,” Brownell said. “So I think we’re gonna get to play a lot of that this season. But I want to balance that out with quite a bit of sexiness and romance.”
