Dearest readers! We are all impatiently waiting for Bridgerton season 3 to grace our screens and are hoping to get a release date from Netflix soon. As we wait, we can at least soak up every possible detail the streamer shares about the upcoming season.

The third season will see the story focusing on the well-traveled Bridgerton sibling, Colin, and loyal friend Penelope Featherington. Though we’ve seen the one-sided love from Penelope’s side the past two seasons, things may start to change in season 3.

According to Netflix, the youngest Featherington is ready to find a husband after accidentally overhearing the hurtful words Colin said about her last season. When the Bridgerton brother returns from his summer travels, he decides to help Penelope find her perfect match. But perhaps in the process, he begins to grow his own feelings for the secret author.

Obviously actors Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton will be reprising their respective roles. Who else is returning to the Regency-era series? Is anyone not coming back? We’ve got the answer for you below!
