It's almost time to return to the Ton and revisit its cast of not-so-virtuous residents, with the Bridgertons once again set to dominate the social season.


Season 3 of the Netflix hit will land on the streamer on Thursday 16th May, bringing another Regency romance based on the Julia Quinn novels to the small screen.

This time around, it will be third son Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) stepping into the limelight, with icon Nicola Coughlan reprising the role of Penelope Featherington, who becomes this season's leading lady.

To mark the occasion, the pair were given transformations that go beyond aesthetics, and were recently Radio Times magazine cover stars.

While we know both love interests going in, with their characters already being set up in previous seasons, that doesn't mean we aren't excited for their friends-to-lovers romance – and, of course, their very own soundtrack.
