Season 3 of Bridgerton has ended on Netflix. Adapted from novels, the series has nevertheless made a big change that surprised fans.

The wave of Bridgerton has swept on Netflix. Sison 3 of the romantic series ended on Thursday, June 13 with the release of the last four episodes, concluding the romance between Colin and Penelope. This finale also forged the first links for the romantic stories to come, notably those of Benedict or Francesca. Because if the latter got married, this is not the conclusion of her story, far from it.

About this last character, that Netflix subscribers really discovered at the start of this season of The Chronicle of Bridgerton, the showrunners operated an important change for the rest of the series. Warning, spoilers: in Julia Quinn's novels, Francesca is a widow and suffers from death of her husband, John Stirling. However, she finds love again in the arms of her cousin, Michael.

You will understand this if you have watched the latest episodes of Bridgerton, the series slowly begins this plot since Francesca has just married Lord Stirling and sets out to escape. his side in Scotland, with one modification: Michael became Michaela. John's cousin, played by Masali Baduza, is introduced in the latest games. 1st minutes of the final episode of this season 3, and it does not seem to leave Francesca indifferent. If several fans were delighted that The Bridgerton Chronicle will soon feature a queer romance, others regretted it this change of gender of a popular character readers of the novels, especially since a plot emerges in the novels about Francesca's desire for children.

Showrunner Jess Brownell explained this twist in the columns of Glamor magazine: "The first time I read the volume dedicated to à Francesca, I identified a lot with her. this story as a queer woman. The book explores Francesca's sense of difference, which Julia Quinn initially presents as introversion, but which many in the community reject. queer recognize as an experience of marginality." If she believes that the fact that Francesca is queer "does not invalidate her connection with  John, she says she saw in this novel “thematic opportunities in her book to tell a queer story. There are certain aspects that allow us to guarantee a happy ending for Francesca and Michaela. We will now see in the next seasons how this relationship will take shape, but we will have to be patient before finding out. Season 4 should probably not be released on Netflix before the year 2026.

What is certain is that season 4 of Bridgerton n&#39 ;won't happen right away, since showrunner Jess Brownell has confirmed; that filming the series took 8 months. There is strong &agrav; bet that the sequel will not be released before the end of the year 2025, or even the year 2026. Remember that a two-year wait has taken place. oac;par&eac; the release of each season of the series.

There also remains a major mystery. Solve: Which Bridgerton Season 4 Will Focus On? It's a still well-kept mystery. by the showrunners, even if a few theories excite the fans. Logic would indeed dictate that the next season would be that of Benedict (Luke Thompson), since he should logically, if we follow the chronological order of the books, already be' ;agrave; at the heart of season 3.

A clue supports this theory, since Colin's interpreter, Luke Newton, left know that season 4 would focus on the second brother of the family in an interview with the Mexican magazine L'Homme at the beginning of June& ;nbsp;: "He's a free spirit and rebellious in a way,” he said. about this character. I'm looking forward to seeing Benedict's story next season. Especially since season 3 ends with a mention that will make Benedict fans jubilant (warning, spoilers)&nbsp ;: the mention of the masked ball; next year, where? Benedict is supposed to meet Sophie, the woman of his life, in Julia Quinn's novels.

Obviously, we still have to wait for confirmation from the showrunners to know with certainty whether Benedict will be at the heart of season 4 or if the masked ball which must change the life of the youngest Bridgerton will take place later in season 4. Others also speculate that Francesca's turn should not take long , since the sister of Daphne and Eloïse has already started a tiny part of her story (warning, spoilers), that of her first marriage to John Stirling, introduced in season 3. Unless'Elo& ;iuml;se be à honor since her best friend just got married and it's a trigger for her romance in the books? Anyway, Season 4 is already here. currently being written and we will probably know more soon.
