Get ready to swoon, because we’ve just copped a sneak peek of Bridgerton’s third season and it looks like Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin’s (Luke Newton) romance is set to sizzle!
While we’ve known for a while that the next instalment will focus on Miss Featherington a.k.a Lady Whistledown and the third Bridgerton brother’s friendship turned to romance, we didn’t realise just how delicious their spark would be!
In the clip released by Netflix on February 2, an exchange between “Pen” and her long-time bestie/crush teases a web of romantic intrigue that promises to keep viewers’ hearts aflutter.
“Your eyes are the most remarkable shade of blue, yet somehow they shine ever brighter when you are kind,” Penelope tells Colin, who looks at her as if for the very first time.
Realising their intensity, she averts her eyes adding that she “might say something like that if you were a suitor.”
“Well, that was rather direct,” Colin says, also a flutter!
Audiences eager for the third season of the beloved period romance are in for a mix of steamy encounters and endearing dalliances with Part 1 premiering on May 16 and Part 2 on June 13.
Until then, we’ll just re-watch seasons one and two and Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story on Netflix…
