Filming for Bridgerton’s highly anticipated series three continued on Thursday as the cast was spotted on set in South London.

For the premiere of the new season of Netflix’s hit show, the cast and crew have arrived at a gorgeous South London country house decked out in purple flowers.

A series of now-unknown cast members stood out in bold period attire as we chatted in front of the stunning gardens.

Several female actors were spotted wearing long, chic gowns and holding umbrellas to block out the sun.

They were accompanied by a male actor who looked dashing in 1800s outfits that included long suit jackets and gaudy top hats.

The cast appeared to be filming a lavish event, gathering outside the lavish venue in their best gear.

The popular period drama has been confirmed to be back in production after the release of its record-breaking second season in March.
