Third season of Netflix hit Bridgerton is plunged into chaos as show bosses ‘axe “very dark” storyline after concerns were raised over a sex plotline’

The next series of Bridgerton has been plunged into chaos after bosses thought that some of the storylines had gone ‘too dark’.

Sources working on the production of the Netflix bonkbuster say that some of the scripts have had to be rewritten as Shonda Rhimes, the programme’s producer, wants to give viewers more joy. 

It is understood that there were concerns over a sex plotline.

It was reported last year that Ms Rhimes has been joined by another executive producer, Jess Brownell.

One source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Filming has been delayed due to the screenwriter not being happy with the direction of it.

‘We have been told that it needs the fun back so there are changes, which of course means delays. One thing is for sure though, the production team want to get it right for Bridgerton fans so they enjoy it as much as they have in the past.

‘There are some elements that Shonda is just not happy with so wants to change them. Some of it got very dark.’

It was announced in 2021 that there would be a third and fourth series of Bridgerton following the success of the first two. The show is based on the series of romantic novels by American author Julia Quinn.

It will be based on the fourth book in the series, called Romancing Mister Bridgerton, and will follow the budding romance between Penelope – played by Nicola Coughlan – and Colin Bridgerton. 

The pair will embark on a journey that will see them go from friends to lovers.

Jonathan Bailey will also reprise his role as Anthony, Claudia Jessie is back as Eloise, Luke Thompson as Benedict and Ruth Gemmell as Lady Violet Bridgerton.

There is currently no release date for the series but it is due to be shown after Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, a prequel that focuses on the young wife of George III and how she evolves into the no-nonsense Hanoverian royal.
