Netflix gained a good number of loyal users after the arrival of Bridgerton in 2020. It first captured the hearts of viewers by telling the love story of Daphne, while the second season filled the screen with passion in Anthony’s version. Now, it’s finally time to find out what will happen between Colin and Penelope.

Despite the characters becoming more significant in the second installment, as their “friendship” deepened in some episodes of that season, it’s now their turn to have their own narrative. Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton will be the responsible actors and will have to take the reins of this story.

Shonda Rhimes is the producer of the title, and despite some back and forth, as she didn’t like the dark tone part of the series was adopting, she has finally reached an agreement with the streaming giant to give fans two release dates, as the episodes will come in two batches of four.

When will Bridgerton Season 3 premiere?

The series created by Chris Van Dusen and based on the literary saga by Julia Quinn will debut its third season on May 16, 2024. This will be the first part, consisting of only four episodes. The second part will be released on the Netflix catalog on June 13, 2024, and will also include four episodes.
