Bridgerton filming 'postponed' after bosses 'axe' season three storyline | The Sun

FILMING for the third series of Bridgerton has reportedly being 'postponed' after bosses 'axed' a storyline.

The Netflix hit, which stars Regé-Jean Page, Phoebe Dynevor and Nicola Coughlan, is returning for another instalment.

However, fans might have to wait longer than expected to watch the period drama.

Filming on the show has reportedly been halted after executive producer Shonda Rhimes wasn't happy with the 'direction' of the storyline.

It's set to feature Penelope Featherington’s (Nicola Coughlan) and her love for her friend's brother Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).

"We have been told that it needs the fun back so there are changes, which of course means delays," said a source to MailOnline.

They continued: “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."

Meanwhile, Nicola Coughlan recently showed off her body transformation in a sports bra and leggings as she worked up a sweat before work.

The actress, 35, took a picture of her figure in a black and white changing room selfie which she shared on Instagram.

She wrote: "If I ever get up to exercise before work I do feel like I deserve a medal and that is just the truth."

Nicola, who plays Penelope Featherington in the hit Netflix period drama, recently revealed her character is the lead role in the upcoming third series, which will focus on her relationship with Colin Bridgerton.

Not every fan of the show was pleased though, with one particularly disgruntled viewer saying: "I'm late about this news but I heard the next instalment is about Penelope and Colin, that is ridiculous.

"She ruined everyone's lives, got the money and just walks away with a happy ending. The next season should be about Eloise.

"But instead they made it about a minor fan. Good luck."

Nicola shared the critical comment on her Instagram account and withheld the user's name.

The 35-year-old explained that Bridgerton isn't reality and she doesn't share the same personality traits as Penelope.
