‘Bridgerton’ Season 3: Release Dates, Cast and More!

When will Bridgerton season 3 be released? We finally have an answer, dear readers!

The hugely successful period drama from Shondaland will premiere on Netflix in two parts – the first on May 16 and the second on June 13.

The streamer announced the news with a video of snippets from past seasons put together, along with TikToks and tweets by the show’s fans who’ve been patiently (or perhaps, impatiently?) waiting for the new season.

“I NEED BRIDGERTON SEASON 3, LIKE RIGHT NOW!” one fan tweet reads.




What will Bridgerton season 3 be about?

In May 2022, Nicola Coughlan who stars as Penelope Featherington, announced Season 3 would focus on Penelope’s relationship with Colin Bridgerton (played by Luke Newton). #Polin!

“Like Lady Whistledown, I’ve been keeping quite a big secret for quite a long time…. but I can finally tell you that @bridgertononnetflix Season Three is Colin and Penelope’s Story,” she posted on Instagram.

You’ll remember the first two seasons followed the first two novels by author Julia Quinn which focused on the lives of Daphne Bridgerton and the Duke of Hastings, and then Anthony Bridgerton’s romance with Kate Sharma.

Benedict Bridgerton’s story should be up next going by the books  – but clearly we can’t get enough of #Polin and the TV show’s creators are giving us what we want!
