Netflix share photos for Season 3 of Bridgerton!

Netflix has shared a teaser clip and photos for the next season of Bridgerton.

Based on the bestselling novels by Julia Quinn and loosely set in the world of Regency London high society, the series became a lockdown hit when it launched at the end of 2020.

The third season of Bridgerton began filming way back in July 2022, but Netflix has been slow to bring it to our screens.

Yes, as previously revealed, the new series will bring Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and her longtime crush, Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) into the limelight.

What is in store for Penelope?

Brace yourself for changes in Penelope’s fortunes as she slowly gains confidence and starts to emerge from her life in the shadows – with a little help from Colin. In an attempt to make up for the upset he caused her at the ball in Season 2, Colin tries to mentor her to help her to be successful on the marriage mart.  But will things go as planned?
