Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Celebrations as King Benedict is canonically bisexual as he’s captured kissing a man in S3 spoilers Of The Bridgerton.


In An Offer From a Gentleman, Benedict falls for Sophie Beckett, a woman he meets at a masked ball. Sophie, the illegitimate daughter of an Earl, becomes a servant for her stepmother and stepsisters after he dies. (Think Cinderella.) Two years after the masked ball (spoilers!), Benedict and Sophie reconnect and marry. Yet, viewers won’t see this plot until at least season four.

The Regency romantic hit “Bridgerton” delivered on one of fans’ biggest hopes with the finale of Season Three — queer representation. 

“Bridgerton” has seen secondary characters in the LGBTQ+ community, but until Season Three, the Bridgerton siblings all seemed to be pursuing heterosexual relationships, in line with the series written by Julia Quinn that started in 2000.

Season One introduced the character of Henry Granville, who welcomes second son Benedict Bridgerton into the art world. But their apparent flirtation seemingly led nowhere, with Benedict continuing a string of casual romances with women through the show’s first two seasons. 

“Queen Charlotte,” the 2023 prequel series that follows Queen Charlotte’s love story with King George III, spotlighted her butler, Brimsley — as well as his relationship with George’s valet, Reynolds. Their love story increased fans hopes for a major queer storyline in “Bridgerton.”

“I really feel like it’s Colin and Penelope’s time. Because we’ve been watching both of these actors on our screens since Season 1, we’ve already invested in them a little bit. We know who they are as people,” Bridgerton showrunner Jess Brownell told Variety.”I feel like, especially in the last season, there are these moments of tension between them where it’s like, Colin walks up to the line of almost realizing that Penelope has feelings for him but doesn’t quite get there. Instead of treading water on that dynamic, we wanted to push it into their season. It really felt like the perfect moment to tee it up.”
