Review of Bridgerton Season 3

Review of Bridgerton Season 3

So far, here’s what we know of Part 1 of Bridgerton Season 3.

Set in the 19th century, Season 3 opens with a fresh group of debutantes entering London’s marriage market. As these young women prepare to impress Queen Charlotte and navigate the societal gossip fueled by Lady Whistledown, the show unfolds with familiar faces from Bridgerton seasons 1 and 2.

Penelope Featherington, brilliantly portrayed by Nicola Coughlan, is at the center of this season. Returning to London after a summer away, Penelope finds herself embroiled in shifting relationship dynamics. Estranged from her once-close friend Eloise and feeling the sting of Colin Bridgerton’s criticisms, she decides to seek a husband to escape her oppressive family. However, her outdated appearance and lack of social finesse prove to be obstacles.

Penelope’s journey of transformation begins with an overhaul of her wardrobe and fashion sense, shedding her childish attire for elegant silks and a more refined hairstyle. Yet, even with material changes, mastering the art of conversation and courtship was still a challenge.

Colin, returning from travels, offers to assist Penelope in her quest. Colin redirects his perception of Penelope as their interactions deepen, sparking a newfound attraction between them. The budding relationship and chemistry between Penelope and Colin is beautiful to watch as they transition from friends to potential lovers.

While the season delivers on its promise of romance and drama, some secondary plots lack the same level of engagement. Francesca Bridgerton’s storyline feels somewhat derivative, echoing themes explored in previous seasons. Similarly, supporting characters like the Mondriches and Lady Violet could benefit from further development.
