The love story between Colin and Penelope was treated to its grand finale, but the Netflix series is not finished: we tell you everything we know about season 4 of The Bridgerton Chronicles.

From the beginning of The Bridgerton Chronicles on Netflix, series creator Shonda Rhimes has said she wants to adapt each of Julia Quinn’s novels, a wish regularly renewed over the seasons. Because the production very quickly won over its audience, pushing the streaming giant to offer it sequels and spin-offs.

It was Colin’s turn to shine in season three, but the Bridgerton family is still large and has many children old enough to find their soulmate and get married. And if many clues have been noted by fans, bets remain open as to what awaits spectators: is season 4 confirmed? If so, when will it be released and who will it focus on? We tell you everything we know about the future of the series The Bridgerton Chronicles.

Yes, there will be a season 4 of The Bridgerton Chronicles : Netflix officially confirmed in 2021 the development of seasons 3 and 4.

The streaming giant then announced that it had approved the two seasons to be released one after the other: now that the third is finished, all that remains is to wait to obtain new information on the fourth, in particular on its main character.

In an interview with Variety, creator Shonda Rhimes confirmed that Netflix’s goal was to adapt the stories of the eight books written by Julia Quinn. A statement on which producer Betsy Beers responded: “I’ll be a little old lady who struggles to chew, but we’ll make sure there’s Bridgerton for everyone who likes it.

At this point, there is no telling how faithful the series will be to the novels. Because season 3 brought several changes to Penelope’s story or even to Francesca’s future narrative arc.

When will season 4 be released? The Bridgerton Chronicles ?

Season 4 of The Bridgerton Chronicles does not yet have a release date, and unfortunately we will have to wait at least two years before hoping to find the iconic family on Netflix.

Franchise Bridgerton has always taken more or less two years to release its sequels: season 1 was broadcast at the end of December 2020, when the story of Kate and Anthony in season 2 was shared more than two years later, in March 2022.

Season 3 of The Bridgerton Chronicles made a bit of a change in its schedule, dividing it into two parts: the first was released on May 16, 2024, the second a month later, on June 13.

And confirmation ahead of season 4 will not change the time needed for its creation. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Jess Brownell explained that there had to be a good amount of time between each season: “We’re working to release seasons faster, but it takes eight months to film, before editing and dubbing in each language. And writing also takes a lot of time, so we’re more on a two-year pace, and even if we do our best to speed up, it’ll still be in that range.

Added to all these delays are the numerous details that abound in each season: the carefully chosen decors or even the music that enjoys covering contemporary hits to transpose them into a more classic style require a lot of production time.

As for the queen’s wigs, each more unique than the last, they are among the works requiring the most attention to detail in the series. Queen Charlotte actress Golda Rosheuvel revealed that the moving swan headdress in episode 4 of season 3 took two years of work to complete!

Who will be in the cast of season 4 of The Bridgerton Chronicles ?

Fans can expect key cast members such as Ruth Gemmell, Florence Hunt, and Will Tilston to return for season 4 of The Bridgerton Chronicles.

Find below the detailed casting that we can expect in the sequel to Bridgerton :

  • Ruth Gemmell as Violet Bridgerton
  • Jonathan Bailey as Anthony Bridgerton
  • Simone Ashley as Kate Sharma
  • Hannah Dodd as Francesca Bridgerton
  • Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Bridgerton
  • Luke Newton as Colin Bridgerton
  • Claudia Jessie as Eloise Bridgerton
  • Luke Thompson as Benedict Bridgerton
  • Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte
  • Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury
  • Florence Hunt as Hyacinth Bridgerton
  • Will Tilston as Gregory Bridgerton
  • Hugh Sachs as Brimsley

As for season 1 actors Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page, they left the series after feeling that the stories of their characters, Daphne and Simon, were over.

Anthony and Kate are therefore the heads of the Bridgerton house and remain recurring characters in season 3 of The Bridgerton Chronicles. And it looks like Simone Ashley and Jonathan Bailey aren’t ready to say goodbye to their characters.

Johnny and I love our characters, Kate and Anthony, and their relationship and what they mean to the show“, declared Simone Ashley to People, before specifying: “We will do our best to ensure that our schedules match.

How did season 3 of The Bridgerton Chronicles preparing for season 4

Season 3 of The Bridgerton Chronicles suggested a more solid lead than the others for the continuation of one of its characters: the main role could well go to Benedict.

The young man does not seem interested in the idea of ​​getting married, but the last episodes have allowed him to discover himself a little more in terms of feelings. Benedict’s interest in the widowed Lady Tilley Arnold also led him to explore her partner preferences a little further.

And the showrunner mentioned the upcoming arrival of a character who could change the situation regarding Benedict’s narrative arc: Sophie would be included in the program. However, the young woman is not just anyone, since it is on her that the gentleman sets his sights in Julia Quinn’s novels.

Benedict could, however, co-star with someone else, as Brownell suggested in an interview with The Wrap. The showrunner explained setting up “many different threads that could allow for multiple protagonists in season 4

On Francesca’s side, a twist could also cause a change of heart concerning her relationship with John Stirling: her meeting with Michaela Stirling, female variant of Michael Stirling in the books.

As for Éloïse, if theories seemed to go in her direction, the showrunner of The Bridgerton Chronicles finally calmed the fans’ ardor (still in his interview for The Wrap): “It’s entirely possible that she’ll be more open to the idea of ​​finding love later, but there’s still work to be done with her to finally be ready.

The three seasons of The Bridgerton Chronicles are fully available on Netflix. You can also consult the list of films and series released this month in streaming.
