‘Bridgerton’ Season 3 Trailer: Colin and Penelope’s Friendship Simmers Into Passion as Netflix Debuts Seductive New Footage


Get your corsets ready, Bridgerton Season 3 is returning to Netflix for Season 3. The new season’s trailer dropped on Thursday, and Nicola Coughlin and Luke Newton are at the forefront as their characters’ friendship slowly simmers into full blown passion. 

‘Bridgerton’ Season 3 will include a total of eight episodes that are split into two parts. The first four episodes premiere on May 16, and the next four debut June 13. 

“Bridgerton” is based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling romance book series. Season one featured the love story between Daphne and her husband, Simon, the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). Season 2 followed an enemies-to-lovers theme as it tracked the romance between Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley).   

The Shondaland series new episodes will shift the focus to Colin and Penelope. Netflix’s official season 3 synopsis reads: “Penelope enters Season 3 finally ready to give up her longtime crush on Colin. However, that doesn’t mean she’s done with love. Instead, Penelope has decided it’s time to take a husband — and preferably one who will give her the freedom to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, far away from the prying eyes of her mother and sisters.”   

Variety previously reported that Daniel Francis (“Stay Close”), Sam Phillips (“The Crown”), and James Phoon (“Wreck”) were joining “Bridgerton” for its latest season.

Jess Brownell is also this season’s showrunner following the resignation of Chris Van Dusen. Brownell, Van Dusen, Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, and Tom Verica of Shondaland executive produce. Watch the new trailer below.
