Netflix's hit romance series Bridgerton is headed back to the streamer for Season 3 on the shoulders of yet another incredible cast.
Based on the book series by Julia Quinn, Bridgerton has been delighting viewers with high-society drama and romance since its debut back in December 2020.
While Seasons 1 and 2 told the stories of the Bridgerton clan as portrayed in Quinn's first two novels, Season 3 will skip the third book. Instead, it will follow the events of her fourth book, Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, diving deep into the relationship between Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton.
