When is the Bridgerton season 3 release date? Fans are eagerly awaiting their invite back to  the Ton for season 3 of the popular Netflix series, and luckily, whilst we wait, here’s our guide to everything you need to know about the new season.

Bridgerton is based on the popular book series of the same name by Julia Quinn. Season 1 followed the relationship between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon (Regé-Jean Page), while season 2 told the love story of Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate (Simone Ashley). Following suit, another Brigerton sibling will seemingly be looking for their perfect match in season 3.

According to Netflix, season 2 quickly became the most-watched English-language TV series on the streaming service when it premiered on March 25. And with Lady Whistledown’s anonymous status on the cusp of discovery, many-a-Bridgerton offspring left to marry, and several romantic rendezvous waiting to be witnessed, it’s no surprise to hear that Bridgerton season 3 is on the way. So here’s everything we know about the Bridgerton season 3 release date, cast, plot, and more.

Bridgerton season 3 release date speculation

We don’t know the Bridgerton season 3 release date, but it coming and was announced well in advance. In a letter from the Ton’s famed social gossip, Lady Whistledown, Bridgerton’s season 3 and season 4 renewal was confirmed back in April 2021.

Reading, “Esteemed members of the Ton, It seems we have a rather special announcement. Bridgerton shall return for seasons three and four. This author shall have to purchase more ink… Yours Truly, Lady Whistledown.”

Regarding an official release date, there’s no such announcement (or social pamphlet doing the rounds) just yet. But with filming now wrapped, we imagine late 2023 is a fair estimate.

Bridgerton season 3 plot speculation

Bridgerton season 3 will focus on Penelope and Colin’s love story, departing from the original novels’ order.

Instead of focusing on Benedict’s love story, the show will skip straight to the Colin-focussed novel, ‘Romancing Mister Bridgerton.’ As explained in the series’ official synopsis, Bridgerton season 3 will pick up where season 2 left off, with Penelope and Eloise’s friendship in tatters after the latter discovered her Lady Whistledown secret. Meanwhile, Penelope enters season 3 no longer holding a candle for Colin after overhearing him talking about her to his friends.

After returning from his travels, Colin is keen to restart his friendship with Penelope, and so commits to helping her find success in the marriage market. While Penelope accepts his help, determined to take a husband to live a more independent life, Colin is forced to wrestle with his feelings towards her after his mentorship works a little too well.
