Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Plot | All You Need To Know!


Who hasn’t fantasized about being part of the English royalty at least once in their lifetime? I know I have. The interest in royalty, especially in Victorian and Regency-era England, is immense. Resulting in the massive success of shows like Bridgerton on Netflix of late. With two seasons done and dusted, interest has already been piquing about the Bridgerton season 3 release date.

For those who don’t know what the show is about, then let me give you a brief explainer. A wealthy and influential family in Regency-era England called the Bridgerton’s are looking to get their children married. The show Bridgerton follows the struggles the eight siblings face in finding love that they are satisfied with. Can finding love be so hard for the rich? Apparently so!

Bridgerton Season 3 release date hasn’t been confirmed by Netflix yet. Season 2 of the show aired on 25 March 2022, with Netflix releasing all 8 episodes. So it’s a little too soon to know when season 3 of Bridgerton will be airing. The good thing, though, is that the show is confirmed to return, so fans don’t need to worry whether a new season has been approved or not. 

While Netflix still doesn’t release exact viewership numbers, we got an interesting stat. According to various reports, Bridgerton season 2 was the most viewed English language show on the platform! In its first week of release, Bridgerton was viewed for a whopping 251.7 million hours!

Imagine how good a show must be that with the drop of a new season, fans automatically jump to when the next season is going to come out! It’s also no surprise that one of the best brains behind modern TV dramas, Shonda Rhimes, is behind the production of Bridgerton.

The show is an adaptation of the romance book series written by Julia Quinn. Season 1 of Bridgerton stuck close to the source material, and season 2 took some creative liberty. We saw the deviation from the source material be championed at the end of season 2 when Anthony Bridgerton got engaged to Edwina Sharma. Then as we all know, he ended up being with her elder sister Kate Sharma, and the fans went wild.

Is Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date Confirmed? No Need To Mark The Calenders Yet!

Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Plot | All You Need To Know!

Bridgerton Season 3 was confirmed on April 13, 2021, but the release date is not confirmed by Netflix. The show was renewed not just for a third season but also a fourth season even before the second season was released to such a positive reception. 

Following the season one success of Bridgerton, Netflix addressed its fans through a letter from Lady Whistledown. Posted on its social media platforms, the streaming giant said they have a piece of special news to tell everyone. The show will return for a third and a fourth season, and the author will need more ink (to write two new seasons’ worth of screenplay, I assume).

Shonda Rhimes herself revealed how happy she was with the decision. Netflix’s announcement of a two-season renewal at once speaks of the confidence they have not only in the story but also with the showrunners. We don’t see this stuff happening every day that a show gets renewed so quickly. Sometimes fans have to beg and rally to get even one season of their favorite show. (Sense8 fans, you know I’m talking about you!)

When Will Bridgerton Season 3 Be Out? Possible Release Date!

Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Plot | All You Need To Know!

Guessing the release date of Bridgerton Season 3 might be taking a shot in the dark, but not impossible. Bridgerton Season 2 was released on the 25th of March 2022, so if the showrunners follow a yearly production cycle, then we can expect Bridgerton Season 3 to be released around March of 2023.

If it were up to Netflix and production didn’t take as long, the third season would have come early. The show is on a roll and breaking all sorts of records on the streaming platform. But we know good things take time, and we don’t want Netflix to turn the show into a disaster out of haste. So we can wait, right, Bridgerton fans?

Bridgerton Season 2 | Brief Recap Of What Happened Previously In The Show!

Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Plot | All You Need To Know!

Looking at the number of hours Bridgerton was streamed, looks like most people binged the whole show the very first day it was released. But in case you’re one of the few who has a life, then here’s a brief recap. 

In the finale, we saw a lot of drama go down at the Featherington Ball. Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sharma get together after Anthony had been previously hitched to Kate’s younger sister. The two indulge in a lot of PDA, and hey, we’re not complaining. Benedict Bridgerton, the family’s art prodigy, quits his degree after he finds out he got into the school by his brother’s donation and not his skill. 

Meanwhile, the other characters of the show choose to stick around too. We see Kate’s sister Edwina and their mother in London (one of the beautiful filming locations of Bridgerton) as Queen Charlotte breaks some heavy news on them. The Queen tells the Sharma clan that she plans to set up Edwina with her nephew Prince Friedrich, so there’s that drama to look forward to in the new season.

When Bridgerton season 3 is released, we will most likely see a host of new characters in the show, just like season 2 did. We are looking at new love interests and new families being introduced. But many of our favorite characters from the previous seasons will be reprising their roles. Among the cast members of Bridgerton that are confirmed as of now are Simone Ashley and Jonathan Bailey, actors who play Kate and Anthony, respectively. Though, we are hoping that season 3 will also mark the return of Francesca Bridgerton in a more prominent role.

Other characters who will also be returning but haven’t been confirmed as of yet are –

  • Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury
  • Lorraine Ashbourne as Mrs. Varley
  • Harriet Cains as Philippa Featherington
  • Bessie Carter as Prudence Featherington
  • Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington
  • Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Basset, Duchess of Hastings

Bridgerton Season 3 Plot | What Will The New Season Be About?

Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Plot | All You Need To Know!

Bridgerton is an adaptation of novels written by Julia Quinn and her 8 part book series. Season 1 and Season 2 of Bridgerton were based on the first two books, and if that were the case, Season 3 would be based on the third book in the series. But showrunner Shonda Rhimes has hinted that they may choose to deviate from the order.

In an interview, she said that they will cover all the love stories of the siblings but may not follow the order of the books. According to the third book, season 3 should focus on Benedict Bridgerton and his quest to find love. Still, there are strong suggestions that it might be about Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton. Now, if that’s true or not, only time will tell as we wait for official announcements about season 3 of Bridgerton from Netflix. 

Is There A Bridgerton Season 3 Trailer? How About We Get One Already?

Season 3 (and season 4) were announced back in April 2021. Right after the amazing reception of season 1 of Bridgerton. Since then, season 2 has come out only recently, so it’s highly unlikely production has started on season 3 of Bridgerton already. We don’t have any trailer for the new season just yet.
