Gorgeous period costumes (draped on just-as-gorgeous people), scintillating banter, bodice-ripping sex, and the kind of characters you get wholly invested in — what’s not to love about Bridgerton? Netflix’s Regency-inspired series hooked viewers in Season 1 with the steamy love story of Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon (Regé-Jean Page), and the fanfare over the show has only grown since then. So much so, in fact, that Netflix greenlit two more seasons way back in 2021. Now, the countdown until the next installment drops is officially on.

So, as everyone anxiously awaits the release of the first half of Bridgerton Season 3 on May 16 and the second half on June 13, let’s regale ourselves with a look back at every single photo of the season Netflix has shared so far.
