Viewers would also learn more about Lady Danbury, Duke Simon Basset's mentor, and Violet Bridgerton. She is the mother of eight Bridgerton siblings.
The third season of "Bridgerton" will focus in particular on the love life of Lady Whistledown or Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan, 35) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton, 29). When season three will be shown is still unclear.
