As the third season of Bridgerton draws to a close, it's no surprise fans of the most esteemed Ton are desperate to know when they will next be transported to Regency-era London, but many won't be thrilled by the timeframe that has been announced.


It was confirmed in early 2021 that season 4 of Bridgerton had been green-lit by Netflix, and showrunner Jess Brownell has revealed when the season will come to fruition on the streamer.

"We are working to try and put the seasons out more quickly," Brownell told The Hollywood Reporter. "But they do take eight months to film and then they have to be edited, and then they have to be dubbed into every language."

She continued: "And then writing takes a very long time as well, so we're kind of on a two-year pace, we're trying to speed up but somewhere in the range."

So, with season 4 being very far off, is there any hint of which sibling could be the focus? Not yet.

Fans have been speculating that the next season could focus on Benedict Bridgerton, if the series was to go back and follow the order of the books, but with the introduction of the Earl of Kilmartin and teasings of Eloise's love story – it could be any of the Bridgerton siblings!

"It's possible that we will continue to go out of order," Brownell previously told The Hollywood Reporter.

"I'm really excited about Benedict's journey in season 3. It felt like it was too early to have him settled down. He's such a passionate character, and we wanted him to go on a few more adventures before we get to his season."

With the attention focused on Benedict, Luke Thompson has been sure to steer away from adding to the speculation.

When asked if Benedict's love story could be next during an appearance on The View, Thompson joked: "How dare you ask me such personal questions?"

He added: "I don't know. I know that it's so lovely [and] that one of the best things about a TV job is that you get to really explore a character long-form like that and fill him in slowly. So as long as I keep getting to do that."
