Netflix has unveiled the first set of official images for the third installment of the hit series Bridgerton, showcasing a matured Penelope and Colin as the focal characters. Nicola Coughlan, the actress who plays Penelope, provides a sneak peek into the forthcoming season.
The debut glimpse of Polin is nothing short of delightful.
On June 17, Netflix released the first official snapshots from the third season of Bridgerton. The photos highlight Penelope Featherington (portrayed by Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (played by Luke Newton), emerging as the glittering new leads.
Penelope, who moonlights as the city’s tattletale, Lady Whistledown, is seen in a number of enchanting pale blue dresses that enhance her crimson hair, which is loosely curled.
“Keep your enthusiasm in check,” the series playfully posted on Twitter, adding on Instagram, “The narrator is set to become the protagonist.”
Nicola’s tease of the upcoming season, which doesn’t yet have a confirmed release date, promises viewers an exhilarating journey. During her appearance at the Tudum’s Brazil event, she described the season as “enchanting,” “passionate,” and “quite sensational,” according to Shondaland.
“The season we’re stepping into is the one Penelope envisioned for herself last year,” Nicola revealed. “She had assumed that she and Colin were an item and then experienced a harsh reality check. If I were to put it metaphorically, the first year was her ‘girl’ phase, the second, her ‘transitional’ phase, and this year, she steps into her ‘womanhood.'”
As Penelope and Colin’s relationship intensifies, so does her bond with her co-star.
“Sharing this experience with Luke has been incredible. He truly understands the process, and we’ve managed to form a united front,” the Derry Girls actress commented. “We can discuss any anxieties about scenes. We’ve been working together since the beginning, but the dynamics have definitely changed this time.”
Nicola alluded to a “monumental change this season,” explaining how her character has “truly matured” since the first season in 2020. Now stepping into romantic scenes, she is enjoying the chance to challenge her comfort zone.
“When portraying characters significantly younger, it’s vital not to condescend and remember that everyone is a human, regardless of their age,” she elaborated. “This season is a transformative journey for Penelope—she’s accepting her womanhood.”

Exchanging a Glimpse In the third season of Bridgerton, Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin (Luke Newton) shine as the pair to watch out for.
A Look Full of Desire Penelope has now matured, Nicola divulged in June 2023, noting it was a “distinct shift this time around” as her character transitions from Lady Whistledown to the leading lady.
Dreaming or Scheming The actress had an early indication of her heightened focus.
“I was informed about two weeks into shooting the second season, allowing me ample time to adapt,” she shared with E! News’ Justin Sylvester and Loni Love in May 2022. “But when the news was about to be announced and I was allowed to discuss it, I was apprehensive. Saying it out loud made it feel real.”
The Handsome Bridgerton Another hidden detail about the third season? It seems like another grandiose ball is in the offing: In July, London’s Osterley Park estate was spotted decorated with white flowers, Regency-era carriages, and purple embellishments, seemingly prepared for filming. Colin better have his dancing shoes ready!
