Small hints in Season 2 of "Bridgerton" suggest that Season 3 could be about Benedict and Sophie.

Fans of Bridgerton who have watched season 2 all at once have a few questions. When will season three come out? Who will be the main couple in the new episodes? So far, Netflix hasn't said anything about what will happen next with the popular period drama. But there are hints in season 2 that season 3 of Bridgerton could be about Benedict Bridgerton and Sophie Beckett. 

Shonda Rhimes has said that "Bridgerton" might not stay in the same order as Julia Quinn's books. 
Bridgerton is based on a series of books by Julia Quinn about the eight Bridgerton siblings and their love lives. Every book is about a different family member. So far, the show has been pretty close to the books. Season 1 was based on The Duke and I, and Season 2 was based on The Viscount Who Loved Me. 

If that pattern continues, season 3 should take its cues from An Offer From a Gentleman. In that book, Benedict and Sophie Beckett, the illegitimate daughter of an earl, have a love story like Cinderella's. 
But there is no guarantee that the next season of Bridgerton, which is said to start filming in the summer of 2022, will stick to the pattern of the books. 

Shonda Rhimes, the show's executive producer, told Entertainment Tonight, "There are eight Bridgerton siblings, so we plan to follow each of their love stories." "We might not go in order, but we will see all of the siblings and hear their stories." 
Rhimes went on to say that the show's writers were "already hard at work writing season 3," but she wouldn't say which sibling would be the star of Bridgerton's next season. 

This could be a sign that Season 3 of "Bridgerton" will be about Benedict. 

Rhimes wasn't giving away any hints about what the steamy period drama has in store. But season 2 may have given hints that it will be about Benedict's relationship with Sophie. 

Several times in season 2, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) says that the Bridgerton family needs to hire new servants. This might seem like a harmless comment, but it could be the show's way of setting up a romance between Benedict and Sophie. 

In the book "An Offer from a Gentleman," Benedict meets Sophie at a ball where people wear masks. He is very close to the mystery woman, but he never finds out her name. Later, after her evil stepmother throws her out, Sophie ends up working as a servant. She runs into Benedict again when he saves her from danger. He doesn't know, though, that she is the woman from the ball. 

Benedict helps Sophie get a job with his family as a maid. But they can't hide how much they like each other. But their different places in society make it hard for them to be together. In Mary Sharma's (Shelley Conn) backstory from Season 2 of Bridgerton, there were also references to how hard it can be to date someone from a different social class. That could be another clue about where season 3 will go. In a scene where it is said that the Cowpers "stole" their cook, there seems to be a reference to a part of Benedict's book where people in the ton fight to keep their servants. 

In Season 2 of "Bridgerton," Benedict was a big part of a side story. 

Another sign that Benedict (Luke Thompson) might be the main character in Season 3 of Bridgerton? In season 2, there was a pretty important subplot about the character's desire to become an artist and his struggle to find his life's purpose. Anthony's relationship with opera singer Siena Rosso was a big part of the show's first season. In the second season, he got the main role. Benedict might have the same thing happen to him. 

Thompson recently said that even he doesn't know what will happen to his character next. 

"The books suggest that Benedict is the next one up, but we don't know for sure because the show is the show, and the show can do anything," he told Entertainment Weekly. "The show is such a group effort, and even when you're not in charge, it feels like there's a lot to get your teeth into. I'm not just sitting around waiting for my "big moment" because it's such a big group effort, and that's what makes it fun to do. I'll be happy as long as Benedict is still being looked into."
