Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date

Following the success of the previous seasons, fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of Bridgerton season 3. While the release date has not been officially announced, fans can expect it to drop on Netflix within the next year or so. The first two seasons of Bridgerton were released 18 months apart, so fans may have to wait a little longer for season 3.

Season 2 of Bridgerton was a huge hit among fans, receiving 656 million hours of watch time just 28 days after its release. With such incredible success, Netflix has decided to renew the show for two more seasons. The streaming platform is even working on a spin-off show based on Queen Charlotte, which is sure to excite fans even more.

Shonda Rhimes, the producer of the show, shared her thoughts about the series’s future, saying:

This two-season pickup is a strong vote of confidence in our work and I feel incredibly grateful to have partners as collaborative and creative as Netflix. Betsy [Beers] and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue bringing the world of Bridgerton to a worldwide audience,”

Bridgerton Season 3 is expected to release on Netflix in the winter of 2023 near Christmas.

So, what can fans expect from Bridgerton season 3? Without giving too much away, we know that the story will focus on Anthony Bridgerton and his love life. Season 2 ended with Anthony and Kate Sharma getting together at the Featherington ball, and fans are eager to see where their relationship goes from there. Additionally, we can expect to see more of Edwina and her mother, as well as Queen Charlotte’s plans to set up her nephew with Edwina.

But wait, there’s more! If the creators of Bridgerton follow the order of the books, the next season may focus on the story of Benedict Bridgerton and Sophie Beckett. However, no official announcements have been made regarding this.

However, Shonda Rhimes shared in an interview with ET that they might not follow the order of the books:

“There are eight Bridgerton siblings, so we’re planning on following each one of the siblings’ romantic stories. We’re not necessarily going in order but we are going to be seeing each of the siblings and their stories.”

Fans of the show want to see Eloise’s story in season 3 but her story is quite different from the books. We might have to wait till season 4 or 5 to see her story. Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anthony Bridgerton on the show said this during an interview about Eloise’s story;

“I can’t wait to walk Eloise down the aisle for so many reasons, Partly because, if there’s ever going to be another character that has a bigger arc as Anthony, in terms of having to overcome psychological warfare, it’s going to be Eloise.”

Will Kate and Anthony return for Bridgerton Season 3?

One thing we do know is that fans can expect to see more of Kate and Anthony in season 3. Simone Ashley, who plays Kate Sharma, confirmed during a Netflix dinner that both characters will return for the upcoming season. This is sure to delight fans who fell in love with the pair during season 2.

“We’re going to be back! We have the amazing Jess Brownell who is taking the lead as showrunner in Season 3. In Season 2, there was a lot of push and pull between Kate and Anthony, there were complications with the family, and then they find each other towards the end. I think everything is just starting. I’d like to see Kate just let go a bit more and play more in Season 3 and kind of swim in that circle of love together. I think they both deserve it.”


Bridgerton Season 3 is definitely happening, and fans can expect more romance, drama, and scandal in the upcoming season. While the release date has not been officially announced, fans can expect it to drop on Netflix within the next year or so. Stay tuned for more updates on this highly anticipated show!
