'Bridgerton' Season 3 Synopsis Teases Penelope's Husband Search
Colin is on the (carriage) way too!
Dearest, tender #Polin fans, your season is getting closer and closer. Although it was announced back in May 2022 that Season 3 of the hugely popular Regency romance Bridgerton will follow Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) and Penelope Feathering Don (Nicola Coughlan), but we now have a better idea of what to expect!
As shown in an image shared by journalist Meghan O'Keefe on Twitter, Netflix released the official season 3 synopsis on the back of a Bridgerton-themed tea box. Indeed, Mrs. Whistledown herself would have been proud to have revealed in such a clever manner the latest and most desirable news of the concern of Miss Featherington and Mr. Bridgerton.
According to the box Netflix sent out, the official synopsis for season 3 reads:
From Shondaland and new showrunner, Jess Brownell, Bridgerton is back for its third season and finds Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) has finally given up on her long -held crush on Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) after hearing his disparaging words about her last season. She has, however, decided it's time to take a husband, preferably one who will provide her with enough independence to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, far away from her mother and sisters. But lacking in confidence, Penelope's attempts on the marriage mart fail spectacularly. Meanwhile, Colin has returned from his summer travels with a new look and a serious sense of swagger. But he's disheartened to realize that Penelope. the one person who always appreciated him as he was, is giving him the cold shoulder. Eager to win back her friendship, Colin offers to mentor Penelope in the ways of confidence to help her find a husband this season. But when his lessons start working a little too well, Colin must grapple with whether his feelings for Penelope are truly just friendly, Complicating matters for Penelope is her rift with Eloise (Claudia Jessie), who has found a new friend in a very unlikely place, while Penelope's growing presence in the ton makes it all the more difficult to keep her Lady Whistledown alter ego a secret.
