Bridgerton Season 3 Predictions

For the past month or so, we’ve been all in on Bridgerton: Netflix’s Regency romance dynasty. Last year we made some predictions for Season 2, to varied success; but what successes we (Ashley) had were incredibly gratifying. And so, as we settle into a long wait for Bridgerton Season 3, here are all our predictions for what might be in store for us in future episodes. (Naturally, proceed with caution: plenty of Bridgerton Season 1&2 spoilers ahead!) 

Jenny’s Predictions:

  • My poor bb Benny, having given up on art, will be thrust into Romance. I know I said I wanted the writers to mix up the order to give Pen & Colin the next season and let Benny have is bisexual awakening before settling down, and I DO want that, but I do not predict it.
  • Now that the Featheringtons are back to square one re: impending poverty, and now that Eloise has discovered Pen’s secret identity, I think the next season will see MILF Featherington discover and exploit Whistledown as an income source.
  • I sincerely believe that Pen will get a chance to confront Colin about that “I would never dream of courting Penelope Featherington” bullshit
  • I don’t count on it, but I do WANT more of Eloise’s footman facilitating her mischief (maybe in a sexy way?)
  • Mostly, I predict that Rachel will have read all of the books by the time Season 3 comes out.

Rachel’s Predictions:

  • I will read all of the books 2 weeks after Season 3 comes out.
  • Marina runs off to America to be an ACTRESS, leaving room for a certain other canonical romance to happen.
  • Eloise becomes A SPY FOR THE QUEEN OH HO HO HO
  • Simon reappears (please!!!)
  • Princess Edwina becomes real.
  • After season 3, a time skip! Eloise and Pen get to play their real ages!

CC’s Predictions: 

  • Presuming that Netflix weathers whatever they’re going through right now, I predict that they will give Bridgerton a Season 3 and if they don’t, it’ll somehow get picked up by HBO and we’ll get to see even more Regency butts. 
  • We’ll get a surprise timeskip and all the Bridgerton kids younger than Eloise will be recast with sexy adult actors in their 30s. 
  • The next big embarrassing public romantic snafu will take place at Princess Edwina’s wedding to that German (?) banana pudding prince.
  • Some other hottie will notice Pen next year, shaking Colin into just straightforwardly confessing his feelings and admitting that he just assumed they were getting married.
  • Eloise will accidentally found the suffragist movement in England 30-40 years ahead of schedule while a string quartet plays “Confident” by Demi Lovato and I throw myself into the ocean, goodbye forever!!!! 

Ashley’s predictions:

  • I am predicting and rooting for a Spanish love interest for SOMEONE. This is purely because I’ve been listening to a lot of Latinx and Spanish pop lately but like, who care. Imagine a ballroom scene set to this song.
  • More horse, I think. Somehow? More horse. Benny horse paintings? Or maybe a bullfight because Spain. 
  • Who is this season even going to be about??? I predict Eloise, I don’t know if that’s the right order. 
  • Eloise abandons any thought of labor struggle and focuses on electing a woman to parliament. …?
  • EDWINA AND EGG!! PRINCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Okay, knowing nothing about the books, my last prediction is that they will no longer follow the book-by-book formula and start mixing things up.

Thank you very much for joining us on this Regency Romance journey! See y’all in Season 3!
