And so, dear reader, it is time once again to formulate thoughts and hopes on what future seasons of Bridgerton shall bring.
And though it is not in this author's nature to print retractions, a couple of them shall be found sprinkled in throughout as I reassess my opinions from my Season 2 wishlist.
First Suggestion: Stick Closer to the Heart of the Books
I hope that Season 3, likely based on Benedict’s book An Offer From a Gentleman sticks closer to the heart of the story, and to what makes Benedict and Sophie work as a couple.
Second Suggestion: Include Anthony and Kate in the Intrigue
Bridgerton has never been reluctant to focus on characters outside of the main couple for the season, and it's my hope that Anthony and Kate are given a subplot of their own to allow viewers into their lives post-happy ever after.
Third Suggestion: Once Again, Redemption for Penelope
I cannot believe I’m saying this again, but the writers do remember Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) is meant to be one of the romantic leads on this show, right?
Fourth Suggestion: The Continuing Sir Philip Problem
If they are indeed determined to have Eloise end up with Sir Philip, then in my view the best way to achieve this is to have Marina simply leave him to forge a life elsewhere.
Fifth Suggestion: Stop Leaving Francesca Behind
With Eloise and Penelope now on the outs — though I imagine this isn’t forever — perhaps now is the time for the two middle Bridgerton sisters to form a closer bond?
There you have it, dear reader. This author's hopes and dreams for the future of Bridgerton are many. But what can one do while awaiting the continuation of the story? Consider perhaps trying the novels on which the series is based?
