Bridgerton Season 3’s First Sneak Peek is Out: Here’s Everything We Know

Bridgerton season 3 has been on everyone’s mind since the second season released in March last year – and now, we finally have our first glimpse of what is next to come. Netflix has finally released a teaser clip from the new series starring Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton as leads.

Considering Bridgerton is Netflix’s biggest series ever, it’s hardly surprising we are clutching our pearls for all the chaos Lady Whistledown is still yet to deliver. And the world of the Ton is certainly set to be rocked as the third season will stray from the order of author Julia Quinn’s eight books, which the Shonda Rhimes’ produced series is based upon. The third season, which wrapped filming in March, will be based on the blossoming romance between Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).

The pair have been good friends since season one, but after last season’s finale, Penelope has, it seems, finally decided to get over her long-standing crush by “giving him the cold shoulder”. As the Netflix description reads: “Colin offers to mentor Penelope in the ways of confidence to help her find a husband this season. But when his lessons start working a little too well, Colin must grapple with whether his feelings for Penelope are truly just friendly.”

In the first sneak peak for Bridgerton season 3, we’re treated to a glimpse into what these lessons might look like. “Your eyes are a most remarkable shade of blue,” says Penelope as she stares longingly into Colin’s eyes. “And yet somehow they shine even brighter when you are kind.”

After a tension-filled moment, the pair quickly avert their eyes. “I might say something like that if you were a suitor,” stammers Penelope. “Well, that was rather direct,” replies a flustered Colin.

According to Netflix’s description, in season three we’ll also see Penelope dealing with her rift with Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie) who “has found a new friend in an unlikely place,” while Penelope is struggling to keep her Lady Whistledown alter ego under wraps.

In June 2023, Netflix whetted our appetites for Bridgerton season three by releasing some new stills. In the first-look pictures, Penelope and Colin are seen affectionately staring into one another’s eyes.

In another snap, Penelope and Colin appear as if in a tense moment, while another picture shows a sombre-looking Penelope sitting alone on a window seat with her hands to her face – a nod that this series will have some major relationship up and downs.
