At the end of its long-anticipated second season, fans were left hanging on the edge of their seats for what comes next in Shondaland’s Bridgerton. Season three and four are already confirmed — along with a Queen Charlotte origin story spinoff — and The Hollywood Reporter spoke with the cast about what they think the future holds in the Bridgerton universe.
Each of the eight novels in Julia Quinn’s popular Bridgerton series is dedicated to one of the eight siblings. If the show continues to follow the order of the novels, next up is second Bridgerton brother Benedict (Luke Thompson), whose romance is chronicled in Quinn’s An Offer From a Gentleman. (Netflix hasn’t yet revealed if the series will continue to follow the same chronology as the books.)
Meanwhile, season two star Simone Ashley, who plays Anthony’s (Jonathan Bailey) new wife, Kate Sharma, confirmed that she will be returning for season three.
“She’s going to be viscountess, so I’m super-excited to continue the story,” says Ashley.
As for Bailey, he simply hopes that Kate and Anthony will get a chance to experience more joyous moments like their wedding at the end of season two, adding that the last shot of them together in the finale is one of his favorites in the entire series.
