It didn’t take long for Netflix to confirm the leaked release date for Bridgerton Season 3 was right. When will the series return?

After initially sharing the release date on the official Twitter banner, fans looked out for an official announcement. However, the banner was removed, but not before What’s on Netflix got a screengrab of the release date.

This isn’t the first time there has been such a leak for Bridgerton* Season 3. During the TUDUM event in June 2023, the Netflix Portugal account had Dec. 14, 2023 as the release date. Well, it looks like there may have initially been a plan to bring the show out then, but then the SAG-AFTRA strike caused problems. The season was delayed to 2024.

When will Bridgerton Season 3 premiere on Netflix?

As the banner stated, Bridgerton Season 3 will be back on May 16, 2024. This is only the first half of the season, though. The series is getting the same sort of treatment as You and The Crown, as Netflix releases two halves back to back.

The second half of the season will air on June 13, 2024. Yes, a month later.

Why would Netflix do this? This is clearly a money thing for the streamer. Splitting the season over two months means that fans will have to get the streamer for two months back to back. Well, that is unless fans want to wait until June to watch the entire season and avoid the spoilers online.

It’s not the only streamer moving away from the full binge-release model. Hulu opted for a weekly release for a lot of shows from the beginning, while Prime Video has trialed different weekly schedules for shows with success.

Take a look at the announcement teaser below to get a look at what to expect this season:
