In a refreshing twist, the showrunner of "Bridgerton" has revealed that season three will deviate from the original novel order, focusing instead on the love story of Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington.
In previous seasons, Colin and Penelope were portrayed as best friends, with Penelope harboring a secret crush on Colin. However, Colin remained oblivious to her feelings. Showrunner Jess Brownell explained that it was time for a change and that this storyline has been building up for two seasons.
The decision to prioritize Colin and Penelope's story will likely pay off for fans of Benedict Bridgerton in the long run. Benedict's arc will likely be developed in the background, setting the stage for him to eventually become a main character in future seasons.
While season four's focus is still unknown, it is anticipated that Benedict will finally get the spotlight he deserves. Fans can look forward to a fun and impulsive journey for Benedict in season three, with the first part premiering on May 16th and the second part on June 13th.
