Bridgerton series three FIRST LOOK


Bridgerton series three filming has begun at Osterley Park in west London.

A first look glimpse at the new series revealed the cast in costume as they arrived at the lavish country estate, which had been decorated with purple drapes and floral displays on Thursday.

The romantic setting appeared to be the scene of a ball, as a series of carriages waited outside the Georgian mansion at the bottom of a set of grand stone steps.

An array of currently unknown cast members were seen walking around set, including several glamorous female actors who were wearing gorgeous gowns for filming.

One actor who had a heavy mop of dark hair was seen fanning himself as he tried to keep cool while shooting in the soaring temperatures that have swept the country.

While another actor was seen keeping cool by drinking from a bottle of water, but there were signs dotted around telling the cast and crew not to eat and drink while on set.

Brownell explained: ‘I really feel like it’s Colin and Penelope’s time. Because we’ve been watching both of these actors on our screens since Season 1, we’ve already invested in them a little bit. We know who they are as people.

‘Instead of treading water on that dynamic, we wanted to push it into their season. It really felt like the perfect moment to tee it up.’

She added: ‘I think Shonda Rhimes has said publicly before that she wants to have eight seasons. We hope to get to tell every sibling’s love story and they will always be in each season.
