Is Bridgerton season three confirmed?
Yes!! It is!! On April 13, 2021, Netflix not confirmed the third season for the award-winning show, but a fourth one too. It is indeed announced in typical Bridgerton style – via a letter from the Lady Whistledown herself. The letter read:
Esteemed members of the Ton, It seems we have a rather special announcement. Bridgerton shall return for seasons three and four. This author shall have to purchase more ink! Yours Truly, Lady Whistledown
Haha! Excited, Isn’t it? This was reconfirmed again by Shonda Rhimes in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, who revealed that the Bridgerton season three is being written, but didn’t reveal much about the plot, cast, etc. Simon Ashley (Miss Sharma, aka Lady Bridgerton now), has confirmed with Deadline that “We’re going to be back! Kate and Anthony are just getting started”.
Who will be playing the main roles in ‘Bridgerton’ Season 3?
Well!! Who else will, other than Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington, aka Lady Whistledown) and Luke Newton (Colin Bridgerton). Bridgerton is based on Julia Quinn’s series of eight books, following each of the eight siblings as they find love. The new showrunner Jess Brownell confirmed in an interview with Variety that season 3 is skipping ahead to book 4 and will be focusing on Colin and Pen’s love story. Hence, I am sure they will be the focus of season three. I am not sure about you! But I can’t wait for another season to see some improvements between these two.
Must need to mention this here that their storyline ended in a pretty difficult position in the Bridgerton season 2 after Penelope overheard Colin mocking the idea of a romance with her to his friends. Hence, I am really excited and eager to see how the story is going to start and will travel throughout the season 3.

Who all will be leaving the Bridgerton Season 3?
We will be missing Ruby Stokes, who starred as Francesca Bridgerton for the last two seasons of Bridgerton, who is leaving for a role in another Netflix series – Lockwood & Co. It’s been confirmed that Hannah Dodd (Enola Holmes) will be taking over Ruby Stokes’ role as Francesca Bridgerton
It also seems that Charithra Chandran, who plays Kate’s sister Edwina Sharma, won’t be back for season 3. In a interview with Digital Spy, Charithra said “For Edwina, I’d say she’s not a Bridgerton,” And at the end of the day, the show is about the Bridgerton family. Edwina exists in the Bridger-verse, as we like to say, but I’ve been so happy to be, to have such a great part this season. And I’m just grateful for that.”
We will be also missing Regé-Jean Page (Duke of Hastings). It was announced on April 2, 2021, by Netflix again via a letter from the Lady Whistledown, that Page’s character wouldn’t feature in season two of the hit show, stating: ‘We will miss Simon’s presence onscreen, but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family.’
The latest news is that there is going to be another cast member who won’t be returning for Bridgerton Series 3 is Phoebe Dynevor, who played Daphne Bridgerton (Duchess of Hastings). She told Variety in January 2023: “Well I did my two seasons. I’ve done what I wanted to do with that character and she had a great arc. If they ask me back in the future, who knows?”
