The show Bridgerton has been the talk of the town for quite a while. It has been the most viewed show on Netflix and has us all drooling over and excited to know what is coming up next.
There are many more books in the bestselling Julia Quinn series, which is fortunate because after season two of the Netflix series debuted in late March, it seems like all we want is even more longing romances set in the Regency era.
Penelope Featherington, who has spent the past two seasons harboring intense feelings for Colin Bridgerton, is one of the characters in which we have a lot of interest.
You might be wondering how Penelope and Colin meet now that Nicola Coughlan has announced that season three will tell their love story.
In this sneak peek from season three of Bridgerton, Penelope Featherington, played by Nicola Coughlan, seems prepared to walk into the spotlight.
In a teaser video announcing the start of season three’s filming, Penelope could be seen evolving into a stunning beauty.
In the video that was made public on July 20, Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope, was seen sporting an exquisite updo and stunning makeup. The soft-spoken Featherington daughter is not typically seen with sweeping bangs and smokey eyes.
Fans of the Bridgerton series won’t likely be shocked by this change because Penelope has a new appearance in Romancing Mister Bridgerton, the Julia Quinn book that served as the inspiration for this season.
What Did Nicola Coughlan Have to Say About Season 3?
After the discussion, the show’s star, Nicola Coughlan, was questioned about what fans may anticipate from Lady Whistledown in season 3.
The actress who portrays Lady Whistledown’s alter ego, Penelope Featherington, indicated that #Polin will be the focus of the upcoming episode.
While juggling her dual existence as Lady Whistledown, it follows her character, Penelope Featherington, and Colin Bridgerton (played by Luke Newton), as their relationship may grow into something more.
“Like Lady Whistledown, I have been keeping a secret for quite some time, and I can confirm to you all that season 3 is Colin and Penelope’s love story,” Coughlan said. “I have kept that secret since two weeks into season 2. This is the first time I am saying it here.”
Where Did The End Of Season 2 Of Bridgerton Lead Penelope Featherington’s Story?
Penelope was inconsolable at the conclusion of season two after overhearing Colin tell his buddies that he would never date her.
When questioned about if he is dating the youngest Featherington, he answers: “Are you insane? In your wildest dreams, I would never consider courting Penelope Featherington.”
Does Penelope Featherington end up with Colin Bridgerton?
In the fourth book in the Bridgerton series, Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, Penelope discovers that her affections for Colin have finally been reciprocated. Penelope, who is 28 years old and is viewed as a spinster by society, is still in love with Colin, but she has no illusions that he will ever want to marry her after overhearing him tell his brothers that he wouldn’t.
However, the two are forced to be together when Colin returns from his travels, and as she gradually begins to come out of her shell as a result of a new friendship with Lady Danbury, who is impressed by Penelope and believes there is “more to her” than the wallflower that everyone sees, he slowly begins to have feelings for her.
When Colin learns Penelope is actually Lady Whistledown, the romance is strained because he gets envious of her incredible accomplishments and feels uninspired by his own lack of accomplishments as the third son of a huge family.
Penelope, on the other hand, urges him to release his travel diaries since they have the potential to be a major commercial hit.
Cressida Cowper’s threats to reveal Penelope as Lady Whistledown provide a problem for the newlyweds after their marriage.
Instead, Colin boldly makes the announcement on his own, garnering plaudits from the crowd while preserving her image, and the couple goes on to enjoy a long, happy marriage.
