The hit period drama from Shonda Rhimes will be returning to screens in May, with the focus this time around on the blossoming romance between Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).
Ahead of the eight episodes being released, the streaming service has offered viewers a minute-long clip of an interaction between the pair.
In it, Colin and Penelope are gazing each other in a drawing room, with Penelope confessing: ‘Your eyes are the most remarkable shade of blue.’
‘And yet somehow they shine even brighter when you are kind,’ she continues.
After Penelope’s admission, the two awkwardly drop eye contact, before she adds: ‘I might say something like that… if you were a suitor.’

Then mumbling in agreement, Colin grabs a drink and nervously proceeds to down its contents.
‘Well, that was uh, rather direct,’ he responds.
But before they can share any more, their exchange is cut short by the sound of voices in the background.

Unsurprisingly, fans of the story couldn’t get enough watching the two appear to flirt up a storm.
‘Their chemistry is another level. LOOK AT THE YEARNING,’ user lintangaileensalsabila8811 posted on YouTube.

The third season of Bridgerton will also follow Penelope’s secret role as the Ton’s gossip writer Lady Whistledown, with her cover threatening to be blown.
Other stars including Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley, who play the newly-married Anthony and Kate Bridgerton, will return as will Julie Andrews as the voice of Lady Whistledown.
However, Phoeve Dynevor, who played eldest Bridgerton daughter Daphne for two seasons, will not be back.
Bridgerton season 3 Part 1 will return on May 16, with Part 2 to follow on June 13.
