Dearest gentle readers, we have a premiere date for Bridgerton season three

Dust off thy chastity belts!

Netflix’s steamiest show Bridgerton is returning for season three and we officially have a release date. The streaming giant has promised “an ultra-sexy, lavish season three” so it’s time to dust off those chastity belts.

Of course, having the latest season of Bridgerton dropping in peak Australian summer would just be… weird. So, we’re happy to inform you, dearest gentle readers, that Bridgerton season 3 part one will be dropping in the cooler months on May 16,2024.

Part two of the season will be an additional four episodes, and it will be released a month later, on June 13th.

What will season three be about?

The new season will see Penelope Featherington finally letting go of her long-standing crush on Colin Bridgerton after hearing his hurtful words about her the previous season. Penelope has now decided it’s time to find a husband, someone who would allow her the independence to continue her secret life as Lady Whistledown, away from her mother and sisters.

However, Penelope’s attempts at finding a suitable match fail miserably due to her lack of confidence. On the other hand, Colin returns from his travels with a newfound look and self-assurance.

Unfortunately, he is dismayed to realize that Penelope, the one person who truly saw him for who he is, is now distant towards him. Determined to regain her friendship, Colin offers to mentor Penelope in gaining confidence to attract a suitable husband this season. But as his lessons begin to have a significant impact, Colin finds himself questioning whether his feelings for Penelope are merely platonic.

To further complicate things, Penelope’s strained relationship with Eloise (played by Claudia Jessie) worsens, while her increasing social presence makes it challenging to keep her identity as Lady Whistledown a secret.

Bridgerton season three, part one will air on May 16,2024 on Netflix.
