“Bridgerton” Season 3 Date Announced in New Teaser

Pack your finest Regency-era attire because you’re invited back to the ton. Bridgerton is returning for a two-part season 3, a new teaser from Netflix reveals.

Shonda Rhimes hit series is returning to Netflix in 2024 with an initial four-episode Part 1, arriving on May 16, with Part 2 streaming on June 13. The new teaser combines footage from the series with TikToks and social media posts about the ton.

Season 3 will center on the relationship between Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton), while Penelope deals with the fallout from her beef with Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie). Penelope will also be dealing with the fact that as her renown grows in the ton, so, too, does the chance that her Lady Whistledown alter ego will be revealed.

Season 3 also marks the reign (ton pun intended) of a new showrunner, Jess Brownell, who took over those duties from Chris Van Dusen. “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, Brownell told Variety in May. “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.”
