Netflix reveals first clips of Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton in Bridgerton series three

Each series of the Regency era drama sees a different sibling of the Bridgerton family enter the marriage market, with the events of ‘the season’ being heavily documented by their own version of Gossip Girl, Lady Whistledown. Series two saw serial-bachelor Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey, Crashing) finally attempt to settle down, and finding love in an unlikely place, with enemy Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley, Sex Education).

Bridgerton’s next instalment receives a spring release date

Each series of the historical drama, likened to a regency era Gossip Girl, focuses on one member of the titular family. Series two saw Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey, Fellow Travelers) take centre stage as he struggled to choose between his intended wife and ‘diamond of the season’, and her older sister Kate. The events of ‘the societal season’ are reported in a gossip style newsletter by the elusive Lady Whistledown, often to the dismay of the upper classes.

The six-part series stars Anjli Mohindra (Bodyguard) as Grace Narayan, a once successful police sergeant who has been forced into a “punishment post” on an obscure and sequestered island. When Narayan begins investigating the unsolved case of a missing teenager, what at first glance appears as a gritty police thriller, drifts into folk horror upon the unearthing of a bygone cult called True Way. Narayan comes to realise the cult, and its dedication to pagan god the ‘Red King’, are not as confined to the island’s past as it first appears.
