Popverse's top stories of the day

It's been nearly two years since the release of Bridgerton season 2, and we've still got a few months to wait until the first part of season 3 drops in May. Though Bridgerton fans did get a bit of that magic during the 2023 prequel series Queen Charlotte, it has felt like a very long wait to see what happens next in the core Bridgerton storyline.

Bridgerton season 3 will focus on Penelope Featherington and her romance (or maybe friendship?) with Colin Bridgerton. We're not sharing book spoilers here, but it wouldn't be a stretch to expect Penelope to be facing some sort of music regarding her writings about the Ton as Lady Whistledown.

But first, awkward romance! Netflix, in celebration of Valentine's Day, has shared two first look clips at season three, and unsurprisingly, they both focus on our central couple of Penelope and Colin. Here's the first:

On more of a less sweet romantic note, Netflix has decided to showcase a bit of conflict that we've been expecting since the end of season 2 when Penelope overhears Colin saying that he would never court Penelope. Colin, as usual, seems a little clueless about the situation. Watch the scene below.

What do you think about the first looks? Do you like Penelope's wardrobe glow up? Let us know in the comments.

Bridgerton season 3 will arrive in 2024 split in two parts.
