First Look at “Bridgerton” Season 3 Captures Penelope & Colin’s Blooming Love

Penelope and Colin are Bridgerton’s best will-they-won’t-they couple, and fans of the show are ready to see their romance bloom. Their prayers will finally be answered in Season 3, and the first look at the next chapter of the beloved period drama is finally here.

Season 2 has been pretty rocky for the duo’s friendship, and Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) decided to give up her childhood crush after overhearing Colin (Luke Newton) say mean things about her to his friends.

She’ll kick off Season 3 by trying to find a husband who will respect her independence so she can keep on living her double life as Lady Whistledown. Her lack of confidence makes her search quite difficult until Colin decides to help her in an attempt to repair their friendship.

In addition to Coughlan and Newton, Season 3 will also star Jonathan Bailey, Ruth Gemmell, Claudia Jessie, Golda Rosheuvel, Luke Thompson, and Simone Ashley in supporting roles.

The next season of Bridgerton still doesn’t have an official release date, but the wait didn’t feel so long because Netflix gave us an amazing spinoff in the meantime. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story premiered last month and captivated the audience with the tale of Queen Charlotte’s rise to power and the rocky start to her marriage with King George.
