The third season of Netflix's Bridgerton series is the most watched and generates the most online discussions. Fans are cheering for the fiery on-screen romance, which has entered a phase of sexual fascination. The series' final scene is widely commented on, but not everyone knows about specific Netflix app settings. And they are worth it!

"Bridgerton" is not a typical costume drama. This groundbreaking and popular Netflix production, set in the Regency era, has introduced new characters who are not exclusively white to its universe and also features, let's not hide it, quite a few erotic scenes. Fans eagerly awaited the premiere of the third season.

"Bridgerton" is a true hit on the Netflix platform, based on the bestselling romance series by Julia Quinn. The action takes place in England during the Regency era, and its enormous popularity results from a unique mix of romance, drama, and humor. The historical context serves as a backdrop for the story rather than its main element. The series' creators decided on a modern approach, adding pop hits in instrumental arrangements and a few spicy scenes. This formula was a hit—"Bridgerton" has been a hit from the first episodes.

The third season of "Bridgerton" generated 165 million hours worldwide. In March 2023, "The Night Agent" achieved a slightly better result (168.7 million hours). The opening result of the second season of "Bridgerton" is also known—193 million hours. Let's add that in 2022, eight episodes appeared on the platform in one day. The third season, however, was split into two parts (the second will premiere on June 13).

The main characters of the series are members of the Bridgerton family. Their lives, relationships, and romances are the plot's primary focus. Each season focuses on a different couple, whom viewers cheer for, hoping they make it to the altar. In the third season, the leading roles were given to Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, and Luke Newton, who plays Colin Bridgerton.

Steamy scenes in "Bridgerton"

The fourth episode of the third season ends with a much-discussed scene in a carriage involving a romantic encounter between Penelope and Colin. Now, some series fans are sharing their discovery online. It's about unique Netflix app settings.

It's about audio description. This option is an aid for people with limited vision. The narrator describes to the viewer what is happening on the screen. Not only do we see the characters' frolics, but it also feels like someone is reading us the spiciest parts of the book. Unfortunately for Polish viewers, this option is only available in English, Portuguese, German, and Spanish.
