Netflix’s period drama, Bridgerton, has caught the attention of fans of dramas, romances, and period stories worldwide. The show is set in the aristocracy of London between the 18th and 19th centuries. It is based on the eponymous book series, authored by Julia Quinn.
The show was released on Netflix in 2020, and within no time, it became the most-watched Netflix show. Not only that, it remains to date the second-most viewed series on the platform!
All that is impressive, and expectedly, the show was renewed for a second season in January of 2021. The second season will release soon on Netflix, on the 25th of March. Not only that, the show has additionally been renewed for two more seasons.
Here is what we know of bridgerton netflix season 3 so far:
Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date
It is hare-brained to expect any updates on the release date of Bridgerton Season 3 Netflix anytime soon. Expectedly, the producers and showrunners are focused on the second season and its successful release.
However, once the season has dropped and reception has been gauged, we can expect further updates on the third season. Additionally, once production commences after the second season, we can get a realistic time frame for the Bridgerton season 3 release.
The main cast will return for the second and third season, and here is the massive cast list:
- Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury
- Lorraine Ashbourne as Mrs Varley
- Jonathan Bailey as Anthony, Viscount Bridgerton
- Ruby Barker as Marina Thompson
- Sabrina Bartlett as Siena Rosso
- Harriet Cains as Philippa Featherington.
- Bessie Carter as Prudence Featherington.
- Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington
- Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Basset (née Bridgerton
- Ruth Gemmell as Violet, Dowager Viscountess Bridgerton
- Florence Hunt as Hyacinth Bridgerton
- Claudia Jessie as Eloise Bridgerton
- Ben Miller as Archibald, Baron Featherington
- Regé-Jean Page as Simon Basset
- Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte
- Luke Thompson as Benedict Bridgerton
- Will Tilston as Gregory Bridgerton
- Polly Walker as Portia, Baroness Featherington
- Julie Andrews as the voice of Lady Whistledown
The recurring and guest cast list will be released once the third season drops, so we cannot say for sure who will return.
Bridgerton Season 3 Trailer
We haven’t even received season two, so expecting a trailer for season 3 is too greedy. We must remain patient and wait for the first official announcement of the third season, as that is when we can expect a trailer to drop as well.
Expect Bridgerton Season 3 to be somewhere around the end of 2022 or the first few months of 2023.
Bridgerton Season 3 Storyline
However, the show is set in aristocratic London in an alternate timeline, where London is shown to be a racially diverse city. The creator was inspired by the queen’s ancestry theories and decided to run with it.
The story deals with the elite class of London, their daily lives, struggles, love, rivalries, and many other things that they deal with daily.
Bridgerton Season 3 Premiere Date
As stated before, we can only speculate that the Bridgerton Season 3 will release sometime in early 2023. This is because we haven’t received the second season yet, and only after that will we receive any update regarding the third season. As production runs for 7-8 months, we can expect updates regarding this in the latter half of 2022 or the early months of 2023.
If the producers and showrunners want to maintain Bridgerton’s reputation as the second most-watched Netflix original series, they would have to deliver in the second, third, and fourth seasons.
Although the concept is interesting, we need to see how they build on it in the coming seasons. Still, Netflix should have some faith in this, as they have already accepted it to be renewed for the third and fourth seasons.
