‘Brigerton 3’: Will Penelope lose weight like in the books? The creator of the series answers

The third season of the hit series ‘Brigerton’ is set to hit Netflix on May 16, and fans are eager to find out what’s in store for their favorite characters.

One of the aspects that has raised expectations is the fate of Penelope Featherington, played by Nicola Coughlan. Unlike the books, where Penelope undergoes a physical transformation, the creator of the series decided to take a different approach to the adaptation.

Will Penelope struggle to lose weight in ‘Bridgerton’ Season 3?

It’s no secret that Penelope has been in love with Colin since the series began. However, he only sees her as a friend of Eloise’s sister, and his at that, so he has made some not-so-nice comments about her as well.

However, in this third season everything will change and, although previously no one noticed her presence at the dances, Penelope will start to attract attention and Colin will see her for what she really is: a smart, sensitive and attractive woman.

In the Julia Quinn novels on which the series is based, Penelope’s physical attractiveness is emphasized because she undergoes a physical change, as she is reported to lose at least ten pounds in weight.

“Bridgerton” season 3 is based on the book titled “Seducing Mr. Bridgerton” published in 2002. Considering this and that Netflix freely adapts novels for fantasy, series creator Jess Brownell decided to skip this part where Penelope loses weight.

In an interview with “Variety” magazine, Brownell explained that this detail is irrelevant for Penelope to conquer Colin, and they did not want to emphasize an unnecessary physical transformation, since the young woman is already beautiful and interesting.

“We think Penelope is beautiful and I don’t think it’s part of her story. That she was an introvert on the show has more to do with her confidence level than her outward appearance. That’s what we’re going to focus on this season,” he defended. .

This aspect was considered “harmful”, although what will happen is that the character will change the way he dresses, leaving behind the bright yellow color, just like in the book.

What other details of the books will change in the third season of the Netflix series?

According to the book series, the story that followed was that of Benedict, the second Bridgerton brother. However, the decision was made to show Colin and Penelope’s romance first.

The creator of the series thought it best not to prolong the interaction of these characters any longer and “bring them out of the shadows” in which they had been operating until now: Colin as the third child and Penelope as Lady Whistledown.

What is the third season of ‘Brigerton’ about?

In season three, Penelope has already given up hope of winning back her platonic love interest, Colin Bridgerton, after hearing him speak disparagingly of her. However, she is determined to find a husband who will give her enough independence to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, the mysterious gossip columnist.

As his marriage-marketing efforts fail due to his insecurities, Colin returns from his summer travels with a new image and a high opinion of himself. Despite Penelope’s disdain, he becomes her unconditional support.

The full synopsis for season 3 reveals that Colin offers to teach Penelope how to trust herself to find a husband. However, when his “lessons” become too successful, Colin begins to question his feelings for his student.

Meanwhile, Penelope will struggle to keep her identity as Lady Whistledown under wraps, balance her social obligations and overcome the loss of Eloise.

The third season of “Brigerton” promises intrigue, romance and revelations, and fans can expect a strong Penelope determined to follow her own path, regardless of the expectations imposed by the books. The decision not to focus on her weight loss is an interesting twist that adds depth to the character and the overall plot.
