Netflix brought us incredible things with seasons one and two so naturally we're already looking into Bridgerton season 3 - so when can we expect it to come out? And what will the storyline be? Here's what we know.

Bridgerton series 3 is in the works with series 4 already confirmed after Netflix viewers binged their way through Anthony and Kate's journey, so we couldn't help but take a look at all the details for what's to come next.

In the first season we saw the love drama unfold between the Duke of Hastings and Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor.

Season 2 then brought us Anthony Bridgerton's story as he took on the challenge of finding himself a suitable wife and his love interest with Simone Ashley who plays leading lady Kate Sharma.

When will Bridgerton season 3 be released?

Fans of the sexy period drama had to wait a long time between seasons 1 and 2 thanks to the coronavirus pandemic but luckily, fans won't be expected to wait that long between seasons again.

But as we're just enjoying fresh drama from the show, Netflix has yet to confirm a season 3's start date.

What will Bridgerton season 3 be about?

Based on a book series by Julia Quinn, we've so far seen Daphne and Anthony Bridgerton's love story.

If the show was to follow suit, then season 3 would follow the third book which details Benedict Bridgerton's romance with Sophie Beckett – but that's no longer the case!

Showrunners have announced that Bridgerton will skip to the love story between Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton – a story arc that's long been teased on the show.

Penelope and Colin are the main subjects of the fourth Julia Quinn novel in the series, meaning Bridgerton producers have skipped one book!

Is there a trailer for Bridgerton season 3?

There is yet to be an official trailer for the third series of the Regency-era drama, however, Netflix released a teaser on July 20 announcing that filming is underway!

The short clip gives an insight into the casts' glow-ups for season three, notably, Penelope Featherington (portrayed by Nicola Coughlan) has undergone quite the transformation as she steps into the limelight as the series' central lover interest.

Luke Newton is to become the show's leading man, Colin Bridgerton, with fans commenting on how dashing he looks in the teaser!

Who will be in the Bridgerton 3 cast?

A new cast member for Bridgerton series 3 has already been confirmed, Hannah Dodd, who will be taking over as Francesca Bridgerton from Ruby Stokes.

Obviously, little has been fully confirmed but judging by the storyline, and a few of the cast tweets have hinted that they will be returning.

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, shared her excitement about another season on Twitter, hinting she'll be in it too as she referenced a future screen moment. She wrote: "Polin Stans this is our moment!!"

Just one week after the second season dropped on the platform, Simone Ashley revealed in an interview with Deadline: "We’re going to be back! Kate and Anthony are just getting started."

"In Season 2, there was a lot of push and pull between Kate and Anthony, there were complications with the family, and then they find each other towards the end," the actress told the publication.

When speaking on her character Kate Sharma's development, she said: "I’m just excited for her to have a home and to have a family. I’m excited to see her grow."

Are there any Bridgerton season 3 spoilers?

As we watch the drama unfold in season 2, which was released March 25, we are busy catching up on all the latest dramas which means there hasn't been any time for season 3 spoilers just yet.

However, eager fans have been getting ahead on all the 19th-century high society drama by reading the Bridgerton books by Julia Quinn in order.

Hopefully, the makers and producers don't keep us waiting too long for more Lady Whistledown drama and releases snippets of spoilers and teasers soon...
