The Derry Girls star also confessed how relieved she was to share the news with fans.

Writing, “I’ve been keeping the Season Three secret for so long I can’t believe it’s finally out in the world! Bridgerton fans I hope we do you proud captaining this ship! We’re very nervous and excited and can’t wait for you to see (Polin’s) story.”

Nicola actually left a few clues for fans over the past couple of months, about Penelope and Colin being season three’s focus.

In a recent interview, Nicola explained how she is due some steamier scenes in the next seasons. Chatting to RTE Entertainment, Nicola said:

“There’s a scene in a carriage and Penelope and Colin are sort of arguing but then it gets very romantic. It would be such a great scene in the show but the thought of filming it terrifies me”

“I’ve read the books and I know that scene gets very racy. I was in a show prior to this called Harlots and I played a harlot, and my mother has never seen that show, not one scene.”

For now, there’s no release date for when season 3 will land, but given the show’s trajectory, fans believe it could be Winter 2022 when it hits.
