Netflix announced Bridgerton was back in production with a teaser video that showed cast members appearing on screen and holding up three fingers.

Jonathan Bailey, who plays Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, was first to appear on screen and grinned as he held up two fingers, before turning his hand around and flashing three fingers – hinting at the move from seasons two to three.

Adjoa Andoh, who stars as the fierce Lady Dunbury, also made the gesture as she walked past a row of trailers while looking at her phone, with her character’s extravagant hairpiece in place.

Golda Rosheuvel, who plays Queen Charlotte, flashed a huge grin as she stuck her head out of her trailer to join in, followed by a laughing Claudia Jessie (Eloise Bridgerton).

Daniel Francis, who has previously starred in Stay Close, will be joining the cast 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’.

Meanwhile, The Crown’s Sam Phillips will play Lord Debling, described as a genial lord with ‘unusual interests’.

A description of his character adds: ‘But with wealth and a noble title to back up his eccentricities, he’ll have no shortage of interest from young ladies this season.’

And James Phoon – who has appeared in Wreck – is set to star as Harry Dankworth in the third series.

A summary of his character reads: ‘What Dankworth lacks in wit and intelligence, he more than makes up for with serious good looks.’ 

The much-awaited third series of Bridgerton will see Penelope Featherington (Nicole Coughlan) abandon her long-held crush on Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) after hearing his disparaging words about her last season, according to a series synopsis.

Penelope, who also holds a secret identity as Lady Whistledown, instead decides that it is time for her to find a husband who will ‘provide her with enough independence to continue her double life, far away from her mother and sisters’.

The synopsis continues: ‘But lacking in confidence, Penelope’s attempts on the marriage mart fail spectacularly.

‘Meanwhile, Colin has returned from his summer travels with a new look and a serious sense of swagger. But he’s disheartened to realize that Penelope, the one person who always appreciated him as he was, is giving him the cold shoulder. 

‘Eager to win back her friendship, Colin offers to mentor Penelope in the ways of confidence to help her find a husband this season.’

However things soon get complicated as Colin’s lessons start working ‘a little too well’ and he must decide whether his feelings for Penelope are just friendly or not. 

Penelope’s friendship with Eloise (Claudia Jessie) also hit the rocks at the end of the second series when her pal discovered her true identity as Lady Whistledown – and the pair are seemingly set to grow even further apart.

The synopsis adds: ‘Complicating matters for Penelope is her rift with Eloise (Claudia Jessie), who has found a new friend in a very unlikely place, while Penelope’s growing presence in the ton makes it all the more difficult to keep her Lady Whistledown alter ego a secret.’
