*Warning: Major spoilers ahead for ‘Bridgerton’ and ‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story’*
The Bridgerton universe (based on Julia Quinn's Regency-era romance novels) is carefully constructed with a cast of characters who alternate between funneling gossip and falling in love. Of course, as any devoted viewer knows, the residents of the ton get their main source of hearsay from the verbose, Gossip Girl-esque Lady Whistledown (who, at the end of season one, is revealed to be none other than Penelope Featherington). And now, it's nearly Penelope's (Nicola Coughlan) turn to shine, as she will be the lead of the forthcoming season three, alongside Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).
But while it's confirmed these two will be the stars of Bridgerton season three, the recent prequel series, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, suggests that one side character may also come to the forefront and surprise us all: Brimsley (Hugh Sachs).
