Be still our beating loins – Netflix’s steamiest historical drama is all set for a third season in 2024. More below…

Fans of frock coats, posh people and smut rejoice – Bridgerton is returning to Netflix for another season. With new showrunner Jess Brownell in the driving seat, all those strange people talking about “Polin” on the internet have a lot to look forward to, as Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton’s Penelope Featerington and Colin Bridgerton’s romance goes to new (read: steamy) heights.

Alongside the announcement, Netflix and Shondaland have revealed a “video asset” (read: trailer, but with Instagram quotes on it).

Check out the official synopsis below:

From Shondaland and new showrunner, Jess Brownell, Bridgerton is back for its third season and finds Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) has finally given up on her long-held crush on Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) after hearing his disparaging words about her last season. She has, however, decided it’s time to take a husband, preferably one who will provide her with enough independence to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, far away from her mother and sisters. But lacking in confidence, Penelope’s attempts on the marriage mart fail spectacularly.

Meanwhile, Colin has returned from his summer travels with a new look and a serious sense of swagger. But he’s disheartened to realize that Penelope, the one person who always appreciated him as he was, is giving him the cold shoulder. Eager to win back her friendship, 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. Complicating matters for Penelope is her rift with Eloise (Claudia Jessie), who has found a new friend in a very unlikely place, while Penelope’s growing presence in the ton makes it all the more difficult to keep her Lady Whistledown alter ego a secret.

The season will be split into two 4-episode parts, with Part 1 premiering on the 16th of May, followed by Part 2 on the 13th of June.
