Bridgerton’s third series began filming in July, with the new series of episodes set to focus on the love story of Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).

Along with the exciting news that filming has resumed, it was also announced that three new cast members will be joining the romantic series.

In 2021 it was announced that there would be a third and fourth series from Bridgerton following the success of the first two. The series is based on the romantic novel series by American author Julia Quinn.
