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.
