Keep reading for more details.
All the Deets on ‘Bridgerton’ Season 4, Including the Cast, Plot & More
1. Has ‘bridgerton’ Season 4 Been Confirmed?
It sure has. In April 2021, before season two dropped, Netflix announced that Bridgerton was being renewed for seasons three and four. The streaming service confirmed the news through a letter penned by Lady Whistledown herself, who wrote, “Esteemed members of the Ton, It seems we have a special announcement. Bridgerton shall return for seasons three and four. This author will have to purchase more ink...”
Additionally, Bela Bajaria, Netflix VP of global TV, said in a statement that Shonda Rhimes and her team have “exciting plans for the future.” She continued, “We think audiences will continue to swoon for this show. We’re planning to be in the Bridgerton business for a long time to come.”
2. What Is ‘bridgerton’ About?
Inspired by Julia Quinn’s namesake book series, the show follows the elite Bridgerton family as they navigate the social season and try to find love in 1800s London (also known as the Regency Era). The first season revolved around Daphne’s love story, while the second focused on Anthony.
3. What Will Bridgerton Season 4 Be About?
Since season three is skipping ahead to Colin’s story, based on the fourth book, Romancing Mister Bridgerton, it’s very likely that season four will be based on the third book, An Offer and a Gentleman, which focuses on Benedict and his relationship with Sophie Beckett, the illegitimate daughter of an Earl.
In the book, after Benedict meets and falls for a mysterious girl at a masquerade ball, he sets out to find her true identity, not knowing that she is actually Sophie.
4. Who's In The Cast?
Details on the cast are currently unknown, but if Benedict does take center stage for season four, it’s safe to assume that Luke Thompson will return as one of the leads. However, Sophie’s character has yet to be cast.
Meanwhile, it’s likely that all of Benedict’s siblings will appear, including Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor), Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), Colin (Luke Newton) and Eloise (Caudia Jesse).
5. Is There A Release Date?
Shonda Rhimes confirmed that filming for season three is set to start in summer 2022. So since season four is still in the beginning stages, it could be a little while before we get a release date or a trailer.
Here’s hoping we won’t have to wait too long for seasons three and four.
