Bridgerton: Netflix announces third and fourth seasons

After the incredible success of the first installment, the streaming platform has confirmed the series through a fourth season. Here's who the main characters might be.

To the amazement of audiences, Netflix has announced the third and fourth seasons of Bridgerton. The platform had recently confirmed the second season and now decided not to waste any time. The novels of Julia Quinn are preparing to return to the small screen.

The series is part of a multimillion-dollar project signed by the company and Shondaland, that is, the production company founded by the famous American producer Shonda Rhimes. The show is created by her longtime collaborator, Chris Van Dusen (Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice) and Betsy Beers. It certainly couldn't stop at season two, which is currently in production, but no one expected the announcement so soon. The story will continue to deepen the vicissitudes of the Bridgerton family: the first season released in December 2020 focused on the relationship between Daphne and Dura, the second instead will tell the vicissitudes of love of Lord Anthony, the older brother. Now we just have to imagine how the project will continue. We do know, however, that the literary saga is composed of nine novels and this does well all fans of the series.

Bridgerton continues: the announcement of Netflix

The statement was issued by the company, with statements by Bela Bajaria, Head of Global TV at Netflix: "We are planning to work on Bridgerton for a long time to come.

It all stems from Shonda Rhimes' passion for Julia Quinn's novels, as she admitted:

"From the first time I read Julia Quinn's delightful Bridgerton story, I knew it would captivate audiences. However, the evolution of this adaptation would not have been a success without the many significant contributions of the entire Shondaland team. The renewal for two more seasons is a strong vote of confidence in our work, and I feel incredibly grateful to have collaborative and creative partners like Netflix. Betsy Beers and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue bringing the world of Bridgerton to a worldwide audience."

How the TV series Brdigerton will continue: here are the guesses based on the books

Audiences can't wait to find out who the main characters will be in the new episodes. To figure it out just rely on the novels of Julia Quinn. In fact, it seems that each season is inspired by each novel.

The first season is based on the book "The Duke and I" and has as its protagonists Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). It's news in recent weeks that the actor has left the project, but new actors and characters are coming in his place.

The second season of Bridgerton is based on "The Viscount Who Loved Me" and will tell the story of Lord Anthony's (Jonathan Bailey) search for love. Following the order of the novels the third season should be inspired by "A Gentleman's Proposal" which features Benedict Bridgerton (played by actor Luke Thompson) the second son of the family.

Finally, the fourth novel is titled "A Man to Conquer" and tells the story of Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) with whom Penelope Featherington has always been in love. And this should be the plot of the fourth season, if you follow the chronological order of the books. In short, the plot thickens and slowly the audience will be able to know in depth the events of each character in the TV series.

All that remains is to wait for the release of the next episodes and, to cheat the wait, watch the series similar to Bridgerton in streaming.
