Bridgerton season 3 is expected to be released on Netflix sometime in 2023, and we’re so excited to see Colin and Penelope’s love story play out. Fortunately, we don’t have to worry about the hit period drama not returning for an additional installment because it’s already been renewed for a fourth season. However, we can’t help but wonder if some of our favorite Bridgerton characters won’t be coming back for the fourth season.

We’ve already seen Regé-Jean Page (Simon/Duke of Hastings) exit the series after the first season. Then in January 2023, Phoebe Dyvenor (Daphne) announced that she had departed from the series and wouldn’t appear in the third season. However, she did let fans know that there’s a chance she could return for future seasons.

So, can we expect more cast departures in the future? Who knows, but there’s definitely a possibility. Below, we decided to share a list of four characters we’d hate to see leave after Bridgerton season 3.

Anthony and Kate

Anthony and Kate’s love story was the main focus of Bridgerton season 2, and we loved every second of it! Initially, we were nervous that we wouldn’t see them in the third season, but Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley confirmed they’d be returning in March 2022.

Although the third season will primarily focus on Colin and Penelope, Ashley spoke with Deadline and shared that “everything is just starting” with Anthony and Kate. So, we can expect to see how married life treats them in the third season. Also, we might even get to see Kate have a baby in season 3 since she and Anthony eventually have children in the books.

But what about Bridgerton season 4 and other future seasons? Well, if the show follows the books, we should continue to see Anthony and Kate in future seasons. We might not see them as often, but they should appear in some scenes. However, the writers could choose to go a different route than the books, and the third season could be the last we see of the couple. Obviously, we don’t want this to happen, but it’s possible.

Colin and Penelope

Since Colin and Penelope’s love story will be told in the third season, there’s a chance that we might not see them in future seasons. But this is only if the show chooses to stray away from the books. If the period drama follows the books, we should see them in many more seasons.

Based on the books, Colin should appear in the seasons centering on Benedict, Eloise, Francesca, and Gregory. On the other hand, Penelope should appear in the seasons focusing on Benedict and Hyacinth. Let’s say the writers decide to loosely follow the books. Hopefully, we get to see Colin and Penelope return for at least one more season. We really want to see more of this pairing.
