Bridgerton is back for Season 3 with a new cast of both familiar and never-before-seen faces, now that both parts are streaming on Netflix.

Adapting the series of romance novels by Julia Quinn, Bridgerton transports fans to the Regency era, following a family and the love stories of each of its members. 

Season 3 of the Netflix drama, which tells the story of Quinn's fourth novel Romancing Mister Bridgerton, centers on series mainstays Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton as they set aside years of flirting and finally admit their romantic feelings for one another.
