The first season of the period drama followed the Bridgerton’s eldest daughter Daphne’s (Phoebe Dynevor) search for a husband. Her unexpected connection with the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) had millions across the globe gushing, including Kim Kardashian.

The second season shifted focus from Daphne to her older brother Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) and his unexpected connection with Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley). This was after her courted Kate’s sister.
The season ended with Kate and Anthony passionately kissing. Many confused if they got married at the time.
Lady Whistledown announced that season three of the hit Netflix series will focus on on the love story of Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).
