    Returning Legends and Farewells

    Adjoa Andoh (Lady Danbury), Golda Rosheuvel (Queen Charlotte), and Ruth Gemmell (Violet Bridgerton) are set to reprise their roles, continuing the legacy they started in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. Regrettably, for devoted fans, the absence of Daphne, the Duchess of Hastings, is confirmed for Season 3. Phoebe Dynevor, the actress who brought Season 1's leading lady to life, disclosed this news in January when questioned about Daphne's role in the upcoming season.

    In July 2022, the announcement rolled in, introducing three additional actors who are likely to step into the roles of Penelope's new suitors. Daniel Francis (Once Upon a Time) will take on the character of Marcus Anderson, Sam Phillips (The Crown) will bring Lord Debling to life, and James Phoon is set to portray Harry Dankworth.
