Netflix’s Bridgerton Season 3 Is Scheduled To Release In The Winter Of 2023
After seeing Colin Bridgerton criticize her last season, Penelope Featherington has finally given up on her long-standing obsession with him in season 3.
But now she’s decided it’s time to get married, ideally to a man who will give her enough freedom to continue living a double life as Lady Whistledown distant from her mother and sisters.
However, Penelope’s attempts in the marriage market fail miserably due to a lack of confidence.
Colin, meantime, has returned from his summertime travels with a fresh appearance and a serious air of confidence. But he is disappointed to learn that Penelope, the only person who has ever accepted him for who he is, is shunning him.
Colin offers to teach Penelope confidence-building techniques in an effort to win back her friendship this season.
Colin must decide whether his feelings for Penelope are really just friendly as his lessons begin to work a little too effectively.
Penelope’s disagreement with Eloise, who has made a new friend in an unexpected place, is complicating matters, and her increasing visibility in the tonne makes it harder than ever to maintain the secrecy around her Lady Whistledown persona.
Bridgerton Season 3 Release date and time
Bridgerton season 3’s release date hasn’t yet been announced by Netflix, but this author will of course update this article as soon as information is available.
Although we are certain that Bridgerton will return for season 3, we are unsure of the exact date of its release.
Since it took a little over a year for season 2 to make its way to our screens after the show’s Netflix launch, we can only hope that season 3 will follow suit and debut in the early months of 2023, especially now that COVID limitations have almost entirely been abolished.
While the precise release date for season 3 on Netflix is unknown, at least it has been announced that season 3 and season 4 will be returning.

Bridgerton Season 3 Plot
According to Netflix, the third book in Quinn’s Bridgerton series, An Offer from a Gentleman, will not serve as the inspiration for Bridgerton season 3.
The popular Regency romance will instead jump to Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, the fourth novel, which follows Colin and Penelope’s love story.
One Romancing Mr. Bridgerton tale, nevertheless, won’t be included in the upcoming season.
When asked about the storyline line, showrunner Chris Van Dusen said: “We think that Penelope is gorgeous, and I don’t think it’s really a part of her story.” The 2002 novel sees Penelope lose weight and get a makeover.
She being a wallflower on our show, in my opinion, has more to do with her level of confidence than with her external beauty, he continued.
Bridgerton S3 will follow the budding relationship between Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington.

In a recent interview with Netflix Tudum, Coughlan discussed what viewers might anticipate from season 3 and said, “I feel like if you watch Penelope gushing over this kid for another season, you’ll be like, ‘Get it together! Come on, get over it, and move on. Since Jess has been chatting with Luke and me throughout the season, I predict that there will be a major obsession. I believe book lovers will be pleased.
The following season is likely to explore the effects of Eloise learning Penelope is Lady Whistledown in season 2, as well as reveal whether the Featheringtons’ financial situation has improved since cousin Jack was revealed to be a fraudster.
Additionally, as mentioned above, Kate and Anthony will be back for the third installment, with Simone Ashley promising a stronger Kate. However, it is unclear what will specifically happen between the two at this point.
