Meet The Bridgerton Season 3 Cast — They’re Pretty Hawt

It’s #Polin season, folks!

As fans of Bridgerton will already know, the regency-era drama will soon be moving on to its third season, which will follow a brand new love story between two of its already established characters — Penelope and Colin!

Each season of the hit show follows a new character attempting to find love in upper class Regency England; Season 1 followed Daphne Bridgerton and Season 2 followed her elder brother, the Viscount Anthony Bridgerton.

Well, today Netflix released brand new information about Bridgerton Season 3 that you might be keen to know about! This includes a cheeky teaser trailer of many of the Bridgerton cast members giving us the finger – I say!

As many of us have long suspected, Bridgerton Season 3 will centre around Penelope Featherington (played by Nicola Coughlan) as she resolves to take a husband — preferably one who will provide her with enough independence to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown.

Having finally given up on her long-held crush on Colin Bridgerton (played by Luke Newton) following his harsh words last season, Penelope now only cares about marrying and moving far away from her mother and sisters!

However, Penelope’s attempts on the marriage mart quickly fail, given her lack of self-confidence. … Enter Colin (replete with a new look and a serious sense of swagger) who is eager to win back Penelope’s friendship. He therefore offers to mentor her in the ways of confidence and help her find a husband this season.

I guess what he didn’t count on is the lessons working a little too well, and soon Colin must grapple with whether his feelings for Penelope are truly just friendly.

Complicating matters for Penelope is her rift with Eloise (played by Claudia Jessie), who has found a new friend in a very unlikely place, and the fact that her growing presence in the ton is making it much more difficult to keep her Lady Whistledown alter ego a secret.

From the teaser trailer, it looks like all of our Bridgerton faves are back for another ~season~, but there are also a few new faces to watch out for as well!

Daniel Francis enters the fray as Marcus Anderson, a charismatic presence who lights up any room he enters, attracting the notice of certain matriarchs in the ton, and the ire of others.

Daniel is known for his performance as Dave Shaw in the hit Netflix thriller Stay Close as well as for playing Dr. Facilier in Disney/ABC’s hit series Once Upon a Time. He also played Esmond Smith in Small Axe, directed by Academy Award-winning director Steve McQueen.

Joining him is Sam Phillips as Lord Debling, a genial lord with unusual interests. Debling has both wealth and a noble title to back up his eccentricities, so he’s bound to have no shortage of interest from young ladies this season.

Sam’s numerous on-screen credits include Spencer Cavendish in British drama series The Syndicate, Equerry in The Crown, and Sergeant Doggett in Far from the Madding Crowd. He’s also appeared in numerous plays including Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare’s Globe, Inherit the Wind at the Old Vic, and History Boys on the National Theatre Tour and in Wyndhams Theatre.

And finally, James Phoon will play Harry Dankworth. What Dankworth lacks in wit and intelligence, he more than makes up for with seriously good looks. So, y’know, no complaints here!

With a background in theatre, James Phoon is a new face to the screen. He has recently finished filming comedy horror series Wreck for BBC Three, and has also appeared in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in the West End.
