Bridgerton Season 3: This is the reason release on Netflix delayed

Bridgerton” fans are waiting impatiently for the new episodes of season 3, but currently, a little more patience is required. When and how it continues, you can read here.

The streaming service Netflix shows its trust in “Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes and her production company, which landed an absolute hit with “Bridgerton”: Even before the start of Season 2, Seasons 3 and 4 have also been given the green light. So the future of the romantic historical series is secure. Here you can find out everything we already know about the third season of “Bridgerton”.

Lost track? Our “Bridgerton” family trees will remind you of the most important family developments in the series.

Bridgerton Season 3: This is why the Netflix launch is delayed.

Via social media, the actors shared the first moving images from the set, confirming the start of filming as early as summer 2022:

However, after the increased security measures in the wake of the pandemic, “Bridgerton” is now struggling with new problems on set. As Daily Mail UK reported in early January, filming has been delayed indefinitely. The realization of season 3 had become too gloomy for Rhimes, so new shots are needed.

Accordingly, a potentially targeted start in the first half of 2023 can hardly be held. Nevertheless, we hope we will still see the new episodes of season 3 in 2023.

Bridgerton Season 3 Plot: What’s next?

It is planned that Netflix – just like in the book by Julia Quinn – will focus on one couple and their love story per season (book). Accordingly, fans were already expecting season 3 to film the volume “How to Seduce a Lord” and put Benedict Bridgerton (Luke Thompson) at the center of the action. Now, however, we are in for a serious change.

Showrunner Shonda Rhimes and Chis Van Dusen had already hinted at it and now we also have certainty: The series deviates from the chronology of the book series and presents us in the next season the romance of Colin (Luke Newton) and Penelope (Nicola Coughlan), as Lady Whistledown announced in person (Entertainment Weekly).

In addition, another change is imminent, because the love story of Anthony and Kate is not yet completely told, as reported by, among others. So, compared to Daphne and Simon, Anthony and Kate will get some more playtime even after their “own” season.

Bridgerton Season 3 Cast: Who’s in it?

We expect all of the Bridgerton siblings to take on more or less major roles in Bridgerton Season 3 as well, with Colin (Luke Newton) and Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) taking center stage. In addition, Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley are already confirmed as Anthony Bridgerton and his newlywed wife Kate (see above). In contrast, the Duke of Hastings and Regé-Jean Page, respectively, have already completely departed from their roles, more on that in the linked article. We will most likely see the following actors again in Bridgerton season 3:

  • Luke Thompson (Benedict Bridgerton)
  • Phoebe Dynevor (Daphne Bridgerton, meanwhile Duchess of Hastings)
  • Claudia Jessie (Eloise Bridgerton)
  • Hanna Dodd (Francesca Bridgerton)
  • Will Tilston (Gregory Bridgerton)
  • Florence Hunt (Hyacinth Bridgerton)
  • Ruth Gemmel (Lady Violet Bridgerton)

In addition to Hanna Dodd, who replaces Ruby Strokes and will subsequently be seen as Francesca, we expect other exciting new additions. The list will be updated here as soon as new names are confirmed.
