The beloved series is set to debut four episodes on May 16 followed by another four episodes on June 13.

This season will focus on the love story of Colin and Penelope (also known by their fan-given nickname “Polin”), deviating from the original Julia Quinn books the series is based on.

Bridgerton premiered on Netflix in 2020 at the height of the COVID pandemic to rave reviews from critics while gaining a few fans from Kenya.

The series stayed in the top 10 in Kenya for 6 weeks between March 27 and May 16, according to Netflix data.
