It’s been just five days since the eight-episode Season 2 of Bridgerton debuted, and fans are already looking forward to Season 3.

Netflix already renewed the show for both a third and fourth season last April, with Ashley confirming at the event that both Kate and Anthony will return.

‘We’re going to be back! Kate and Anthony are just getting started,’ Ashley said at the event.

She also praised new showrunner Jess Brownell, who will be at the helm for both the third and fourth seasons, calling her ‘amazing.’

‘In Season 2, there was a lot of push and pull between Kate and Anthony, there were complications with the family, and then they find each other towards the end. I think everything is just starting,’ Ashley teased.

‘I’d like to see Kate just let go a bit more and play more in Season 3 and kind of swim in that circle of love together. I think they both deserve it.”
