'Bridgerton' Returns with Record-Breaking Opening Weekend

The third season of the hit Netflix romance series has made a triumphant return with its biggest opening weekend to date, pulling in an astonishing 45.05 million views worldwide.

AceShowbiz - The first half of "Bridgerton" Season 3, which premiered on May 16th, has pulled in an astonishing 45.05 million views worldwide, equating to 165.2 million hours of viewing time. This impressive figure surpasses the previous season's opening weekend by a significant margin, with Season 2 debuting with just 22.7 million views.

Moreover, "Bridgerton"'s latest installment has set a record as the highest single weekly view count for any Netflix series since the streaming giant began ranking its titles by views. It currently stands second in single-week views since June 2023, behind only the Millie Bobby Brown-led film "Damsel (2024)".

The series' success can be attributed to its shorter run time, increased subscriber base, and the highly anticipated plotline between Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton. Colin's declaration of love for Penelope in the carriage has left fans on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting the conclusion in Part 2.

"Bridgerton"'s latest season has also been praised for its increase in romantic and steamy scenes, with at least six minutes of kissing, sex, and other intimate acts in the first four episodes.

Despite the initial criticism for its slow-burning plot, the season has concluded with a dramatic cliffhanger. Penelope's heartbreak over Lord Debling and Colin's subsequent confession have set the stage for an explosive Part 2, scheduled to release on June 13th.

With its record-breaking opening weekend and high anticipation for the remaining episodes, "Bridgerton" Season 3 is poised to join the ranks of Netflix's most popular English-language series.
