Although the Netflix adaptation has so far covered the first two books of Quinn’s eight-book series, season 3 takes a slight detour by skipping the third book, ‘An Offer From a Gentleman’, and delving into the fourth book, ‘Romancing Mister Bridgerton’.

With fans speculating about the direction of season 4, whether it will return to Benedict’s storyline or explore Eloise’s journey in ‘To Sir Phillip, With Love’, Quinn hints that there’s plenty more to come. While technically only four seasons are contracted, showrunner Shonda Rhimes has expressed interest in expanding the series to eight seasons.
