At the end of the panel, star Nicola Coughlan was asked what Lady Whistledown can tell viewers to expect in Season 3. The actress, who plays Penelope Featherington whose alter ego is Lady Whistledown, revealed that the next episode will be all about #Polin. It will follow her character Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton (played by Luke Newton) as their friendship potentially blossoms into something more while balancing her double life as Lady Whistledown.

“Like Lady Whistledown, I’ve been keeping a secret for some time and can confirm to you that Season 3 is the love story of Colin and Penelope,” Coughlan said. “I kept this secret for two weeks in Season 2. This is the first time I’ve said it here.”

The duo’s love story is the subject of Julia Quinn’s fourth book in the Bridgerton series, Romancing Mister Bridgerton. The first two seasons of the Netflix TV series followed the first two novels in their original order, focusing on Daphne Bridgerton and Anthony Bridgerton, respectively, and their quests for love.

Shondaland and Netflix had already revealed the identity of Lady Whistedown at the end of season 1; in the books, this doesn’t happen until the fourth book, centering on Penelope.

As Deadline revealed earlier this week, Season 3 will also feature Hannah Dodd as Francesca Bridgerton, reprising the role of Ruby Stokes who left and is the helm of another Netflix series, Lockwood & Co. Casting for the new season is already underway.

The panel also included Bridgerton cast members Simone Ashley, Charithra Chandran, series creative executive producer and seasons 1 and 2 showrunner Chris Van Dusen, costume designer Sophie Canale and composer Kris Bowers. It was hosted by actress and host Yvette Nicole Brown.
