Netflix’s popular show Bridgerton is making some major casting changes as it gears to air its third season in 2024.

The upcoming season of the show, which is based on the book series by Julia Quinn and created by Chris Van Dusen, will be focussing on Nicola Coughlan’s character Penelope and her romance with Luke Newton’s Colin Bridgerton.

While the official release date is yet to be announced, the show went through a cast shakeup, with one cast member exiting, another being replaced and several awaiting decisions for their characters.
