The third season of “Bridgerton,” the adored drama series set in the Regency era, is much anticipated by viewers. While official information on the release date is still being withheld, fans are speculating about what will happen in the next love mystery and social drama. Viewers are eager to return to the world of the Bridgerton family and their captivating adventures after the first two seasons’ popularity.
It’s essential to follow official announcements from the cast and crew, streaming services, or the official social media accounts for the program to stay up to current on the most recent information. The excitement for “Bridgerton” Season 3 keeps building till then.
Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date
Season three of Netflix was confirmed to have commenced filming shortly after, with production set to begin in July 2022. It was supposed to conclude earlier this year, but it was a long shot.
Therefore, if seasons one and two serve as a benchmark for the length of time required for post-production, we can anticipate the release of the much-awaited season three sometime in early 2024. Although the precise date is unknown, it’s possible that the gates of the Ton will open again sooner than we realize.
Bridgerton Season 3 Cast
Several new cast members were revealed by Netflix prior to the start of filming for Bridgerton season 3. Sam Phillips, James Phoon, and Daniel Francis have been added to the roster for season 3, while Hannah Dodd will play Francesca Bridgerton going forward.
Jonathan Bailey, who recently landed a new role in a limited series on Showtime, will be back on the show on a regular basis as the Viscount Anthony Bridgerton. (His new program won’t at all conflict with his Bridgerton job!)
In addition, several of the new cast members from season 2 may make a brief comeback in season 3, including Calam Lynch, who plays Theo Sharpe, Eloise’s forbidden love interest. Who will appear in the forthcoming third season is as follows:
- Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury
- Lorraine Ashbourne as Mrs. Varley
- Simone Ashley as Kate, Viscountess Bridgerton
- Jonathan Bailey as Viscount Anthony Bridgerton
- Harriet Cains as Philippa Finch
- Bessie Carter as Prudence Featherington

Which Bridgerton Book is Season 3 Based on?
As Shonda Rhimes had previously revealed, Bridgerton will be deviating from the Julia Quinn series’ book order and omitting the third novel. The show will move to Penelope and Colin’s story in Romancing Mister Bridgerton instead of delving into Benedict’s story in An Offer from a Gentleman.
While some readers of the book series might not agree, it might be ideal for the narrative to go without following the sequence of the books. And since all eight of the books are slated for adaptation, we don’t have to worry about losing out on anyone’s story just yet.
Bridgerton Season 2 Recap
The second season of Bridgerton begins with reticent debutante Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie), on the verge of passing out before her presentation to Queen Charlotte is cut short by the appearance of the first letter from Lady Whistledown in months.
Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan), who lives across town, observes the activity in the streets below from the window of her drawing room. Not to be forgotten, our perceptive little Pen has been Whistledown from the beginning, and now she’s running her business while looking like a lady’s maid and bartering like a boss. Extra points for allowing Coughlan to speak with her Irish accent while disguising herself.
The news that Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), who split from his opera singer mistress Sienna, is looking for a wife will keep Whistledown very busy this season. Love is not going to play a role; what he’s looking for are hips capable of having children and half a brain, albeit the latter is more of a wish than a necessity.
Notably, Anthony’s sideburns and Daphne’s (Phoebe Dynevor) bangs are both considerably better controlled this season. Having Eloise by her side at all social gatherings makes it difficult for Penelope to keep her secrets hidden. Pen is privately upset that Eloise now prefers Mary Wollstonecraft to vacuous gossip, even if they are still very close.
If nothing else, Eloise won’t have to uphold Daphne’s reputation as the season’s diamond. Sensing the pressure from several crucial Whistledown columns, the queen (Golda Rosheuvel) gives Edwina the diamond. (Adj. song: “Shine Bright Like a Diamond,” naturally.)
After making that declaration, Anthony declares Edwina to be his bride, putting him in direct conflict with Kate, who is protective of her younger sister and won’t allow her to associate with the man she detested at first sight.
