Love finds Lady Whistledown now. Netflix has made new footage from Bridgerton Season 3 available, which will premiere on May 16. The new sister in the privileged Bridgerton family in 19th-century England will continue to embark on romantic adventures in Season 5, similar to the earlier seasons and the Julia Quinn novels from which they are derived. Colin, played by Luke Newton, is the third-eldest sibling, and Penelope, played by Nicola Coughlan, is his fiancée from the nearby Featherington family. Their story takes centre stage in Season 3.

Continuation of a romance narrative

In the new clip, premiered at a Bridgerton fan event in London, U.K., attended by Quinn and executive producer Shonda Rhimes, Lady P. confronts Colin about his unwillingness to pursue her. Tears welling up in her eyes, she informs him that because she embarrasses him, of course, he will never court her.

Check out the clip below:


Incorporation of book scene and episode details

Seasons 1 and 2 reveal that Colin is mainly unaware of the lengthy crush that the shy Penelope has on him. The show promises to continue their slow-burn romance narrative when part two of Season 3 is released on June 13.

Rhimes and Quinn confirmed during a panel at the event that they will incorporate a beloved scene from the books into the screen version, where Penelope offers Colin her hand after he cuts it.

At the fan event, Netflix not only released new show stills and episode names, but they also announced that they will be hosting a wedding themed around Bridgerton for a few lucky fans. Meanwhile, Out of the Shadows, How Bright the Moon, and Forces of Nature are the titles of the first three episodes.

Character development and story arcs:

In Season 3, Colin offers to guide Penelope in the ways of confidence so that she can find a husband this season, eager to reestablish their friendship. Colin has to figure out if his feelings for Penelope are more than simply friendly when his lessons start to work a bit too well.

Although their friendship was in need of repair after Season 2, Penelope is also the hidden identity of Lady Whistledown, a gossip columnist in the area, and Eloise Bridgerton's (Claudia Jessie) best friend.
