We're all wondering when we'll get to see Bridgerton series 3 and now Netflix have released the official trailer in the run up to the two-part release dates. So, when is season three of Bridgerton coming out and who is in the cast?

Bridgerton series three is almost upon us after Netflix confirmed it will be released in two parts in May and June 2024.

Viewers binged their way through Anthony and Kate's journey in record time a whole two years ago, so for months we've been asking questions about what's next. And now that an official trailer has been revealed, we are that bit closer to know what's going to happen.

In the first season, we saw the love drama unfold between the Duke of Hastings and Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor and Rege Jean Page. Season two then brought us Anthony Bridgerton's (Jonathan Bailey) story as he took on the challenge of finding himself a suitable wife and his love interest with leading lady Kate Sharma, played by Simone Ashley.

So what is going to happen in Bridgerton series three? Is there a release date and a trailer yet? And are there any storyline spoilers? Here's everything we know about season three so far:

When is Bridgerton season 3 coming out?

Series three of Bridgerton will release in two parts: Part 1 on 16th May and Part 2 on 13th June 2024.

Fans of the steamy period drama had to wait a long time between seasons one and two after delays in filming due to COVID-19 and in 2023 the SAG strike probably had a knock-on effect too.

Production for Bridgerton season three wrapped in spring 2023 but the strikes likely affected the post-production process.

Is there a trailer for Bridgerton season 3?

The official trailer for the third series of the Regency-era drama has finally been released by Netflix, which you can watch below.

What will happen in Bridgerton season 3?

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

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!

Before the official trailer was released we were given a good look at the casts' glow-ups for season three in the video below. Specifically, Penelope Featherington (portrayed by Nicola Coughlan) who has gone through a huge transformation as she steps into the limelight as the series' central lover interest.

Viewers have the absolute joy of experiencing a completely new and improved Penelope. Gone is the meek girl that let herself be treated like a doormat and welcome the new and improved woman who stands up for herself!

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

In one recent teaser we also got to see where Kate and Anthony are at in their marriage, looking more in love than ever before while dancing together at a Ball. You can watch that teaser at the bottom of this page.

Are there any Bridgerton season 3 spoilers?

As little is currently known about season three, there aren't any spoilers just yet – unless you've read the novels!

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