Bridgerton Season 3 Release Date and Time Slot

By April 2021, the series was renewed for a third and fourth season. Jess Brownell would serve as writer and showrunner for the third and fourth seasons, replacing Van Dusen. As of October 4, 2022, there’s no information on when the next chapter will be released. The only detail we have is that it’s coming and is presently in development. Moreover, we know that Season 2 debuted a little more than a year after season 1. If this is the case, the following chapter might be released sometime in spring 2023. 

We would like to highlight that this is just speculation, and the fans should wait for Netlfix to confirm it in the coming months. Moreover, like the last two seasons, and if we take most of the Netflix series into consideration with a bit of speculation, then the new series, Bridgerton Season 3, will have the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET).

Dearest gentle reader,

Due to her lack of confidence, however, her search doesn’t go so well. Meanwhile, Colin is back from his summer travels with a new look and major swagger. He is disheartened to learn that Penelope, the one person who always appreciated him as he was, is giving him the cold shoulder. Eager to win back her friendship, Colin helps Penelope boost her confidence so as to attract the perfect husband.

But when his lessons start working a little too well, Colin is faced with figuring out what his true feelings for his friend really are. Complicating matters for Penelope is her rift with Eloise (Claudia Jessie), who has found a new friend in a very unlikely place, while Penelope’s growing presence in the ton makes it all the more difficult to keep her Lady Whistledown alter ego a secret.
