It’s been nearly eight months since we last saw the Bridgertons and the whole ton. But even though season two was utter perfection, eight months is far to long to be deprived of the drama.

And it doesn’t seem like we will be getting another series anytime soon, with season three not hitting screens until the 13th of April.

But, clearly seeing our frustration, the creators decided to take pity on us and provide some updates on Bridgerton season three, spilling all the details on a new character coming to the city for the summer season.

Of course, that isn’t all we know about season three, as early this year the creators confirmed the love story of the third season, with Colin and Penelope’s story being the main focus of the next instalment.

It was romance we all wanted to happen but it never quite seemed within grasp until the end of season two, and even then we are not sure if the two are left on very good terms.

In season three all will be revealed as we expect to see a very different side to the pair, who until now have had a somewhat sibling-like relationship, with Colin seeing Penelope as his younger sister’s best friend and Penelope secretly crushing on him.

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope in the show shared the exciting season three news on Instagram writing, “Like Lady Whistledown I’ve been keeping quite a big secret for quite a long time… but I can finally tell you that @bridgertonnetflix Season Three is Colin and Penelope’s Story ❤️”
