Bridgerton on Netflix: contrary to what you may think, Colin and Penelope are the new couple who will ignite season 3 – News Series

The first part of season 3 of “The Bridgerton Chronicles” is finally available on Netflix! Are these first episodes centered on the romance between Colin (Luke Newton) and Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) worth the watch?

It’s one of Netflix’s most popular series and it’s finally coming back for a third season, after the huge success of its spin-off centered on Queen Charlotte. The Bridgerton Chronicles series returns for new romantic adventures in London’s high society during the 19th century English Regency.

The third round of episodes, the series produced by Shonda Rhimes and adapted from the eponymous book series by Julia Quinn, centers on one of readers’ favorite couples – Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) . Have they managed to do better than their predecessors?

Is ‘Bridgerton’ season 3 worth watching?

From season to season, The Bridgerton Chronicles (and its spin-off Queen Charlotte) has managed to outdo itself on the couples highlighted. If Daphné Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Bassett (Regé-Jean Page) had set the bar high in the first episodes of the series produced by Shonda Rhimesthe following couples created as much, if not more, sensations with the public.

But after three seasons, the recipe seems to go a little in circles, especially in terms of storytelling. Indeed, the first three Bridgerton romances fit into a very specific trope (cliché in romances): the “strangers to lovers” story, and even the “enemies to lovers” story. ” (from enemies to lovers) for Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley).

This time, change of storytelling for Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) and Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan), one of the favorite couples of readers of Julia Quinn’s novels who is at the heart of the third round of episodes: the public will follow a “friends to lovers” romance, that is to say, friends who become lovers, which implies a totally different but no less enjoyable narrative.

Because this third season of Bridgerton is the culmination of two other seasons of waiting, where Penelope, aka Lady Whistledown, pined for the one she always loved but for whom she conceded an unfailing friendship.

A little taste of teenage romance

In these new episodes of Bridgerton, Penelope, more alone than ever after her best friend Eloise (Claudia Jessie) discovered her secret identity, decides to find a husband. She then goes through the makeover box and says goodbye to her little girl’s curls by now sporting loose hair. “I’m not a girl, not yet a woman” sang Britney Spears and it’s the new mantra of Penelope Featherington, the new girl next door of high society.

Despite an argument at the beginning, Penelope will be able to count on her lifelong friend, Colin Bridgerton, who in one summer has become a playboy and the most popular young bachelor of the season, to find the right match for her. The young man even goes so far as to give her some flirting lessons, but these secret lessons will bring them even closer.


And Colin will finally realize that he also has feelings for his best friend and that they are made for each other. Teased for a long time, the romance between Colin and Penelope is a surprise to no one (and therefore not a spoiler) but they will obviously have many obstacles in their way, such as the suitor Lord Debling (Sam Phillips), the worst enemy Cressida ( Jessica Madsen) and former best friend Eloise.

The dynamic between Colin and Penelope works wonderfully – obviously thanks to the performance of its performers and their alchemy – but also thanks to a very teenage atmosphere. Between the misunderstandings, the unsaid things, the lingering glances, the sexual tension, the first kisses and the evocative dreams, the story between Colin and Penelope is as passionate as it is tender, like all first emotions.

Their romance, helmed by showrunner Jess Brownell, screenwriter for the Scandal and Inventing Anna series, takes up the codes of adolescent stories and initiatory tales of young girls in bloom that we could read in Jane Austen or see in popular teen films from the 2000s inspired by literature.

There is no doubt that this third season of The Bridgerton Chronicles will be the one with which the public (young and old) will be able to identify the most. It’s the kind of romance for teens, a little clumsy but funny and refreshing with the right dose of spice.


Because Bridgerton remains Bridgerton and the sensual scenes are still very present, even if they are less numerous in this first part of season 3. They are first served by Kate and Anthony, whose couple is doing wonderfully; then it’s up to Colin to give a glimpse of his performances in the bedroom before he finally slowly approaches Penelope’s intimacy.

This first part of season 3 of Bridgerton is just a taste of what the love story between Colin and Penelope is going to be at its full potential. This crescendo of tension makes the separation of season 3 into 2 parts very frustrating, both for the romance and for the side effects of high society where gossip, betrayals, other love stories and the search for Lady Whistledown are going well.

We will have to wait until June 16 to discover the second part (also four episodes) and thus have a complete opinion on this third season of Bridgerton, which promises to be the most romantic and the most intoxicating batch of episodes of the series Netflix.

The first part of season 3 of The Bridgerton Chronicles is available on Netflix.
