Penelope and Colin Conspire in First “Bridgerton” Season 3 Trailer

Your return trip to the ‘Ton is duly booked, your carriage awaits, and a fresh season of intrigue will greet you in a month’s time.

The first trailer for season 3 of Bridgerton has arrived, revealing quite the unique arrangement between Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin (Luke Newton), who have decided to band together to find Penelope the man of her dreams. Or, more accurately, a husband.

Julie Andrews again voices Lady Whistledown as she welcomes us back to the ‘Ton. “We have been apart for far too long,” Lady Whistledown says, “at last, London’s fashionable set has made its return, and it seems that our Bon Ton is moving with the changing tide. So, too, is this author.”

Penelope is not so sure she can find her man, even with Colin’s help, but the latter is determined and sure as ever there’s a match fit for her in the ‘Ton. The trailer unveils a new potential suitor for Penelope’s hand, Lord Debling (Sam Phillips), but all may not be as it seems.

“What is the primary force that guides us along our paths?” Lady Whistledown asks at the trailer’s end. “Is it our minds or our hearts?”

This is the question that Bridgerton has been asking, in one form or another, since its inception and part of the reason why it’s such a hit for Netflix.

Joining Coughlan and Newton in the cast are Jonathan Bailey, Simone Ashley, Claudia Jessie, Jessica Madsen, Golda Rosheuvel, Hugh Sachs, Adjoa Andoh, Daniel Francis, Hannah Dodd, Harriet Cains, Bessie Carter, Polly Walker, Martins Imhangbe and Emma Naomi.

Take a trip back to the ‘Ton with the new trailer below. Bridgerton season 3, part 1 arrives on May 16:
