The season, focusing on the love story of Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton, ends this week.

The highly anticipated season 3 of Bridgerton is just around the corner and the first four episodes will be released on May 16. And to stoke the excitement even further, the show is bringing back its signature touch with a new set of orchestral pop covers.

Get ready to be transported to the other side of the world with reimagined songs from some of your favorite artists, all ready to be performed by the Vitamin String quartet, known for their mesmerizing Ariana Grande and Madonna sets in previous years.

Speaking of which, BTS, the K-pop band featuring the septet Jungkook, Jimin, Jin, RM, Taehyung, Suga and J-Hope, will of course also make their debut in the series with their Billboard-topping song.

The streaming service shared on their official social media account: “Orchestra covers you’ll hear in Bridgerton Season 3 Part 1.” The post featured artists and their covers, including Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever, BTS’ Dynamite and Sia’s Cheap Thrills in the part 1 tracklist.

In the fourth episode, Los Angeles band Shimmer covers Nick Jonas’s Jealous, while Atwood Quartet covers Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey’s Snow On The Beach, Variety reports.

The show’s third season, directed by Jess Brownell, will be split into two parts, with the first part releasing on May 16 and the final four on June 13.

Likewise, the soundtracks will also be released in two parts. Justin Kamps, the show’s music supervisor, previously told Tudum, “I’m starting to try to think of songs from the past that might work for this, and then also current hits that might make sense.”

While discussing the process of composing music for the main characters this season, another returning music supervisor, Kris Bowers, said, “To be able to write a new theme for Colin (Luke Newton), a new theme for Penn, a new theme for the two of them together was a lot of fun and definitely brought a new feel to the sound and score for this season.
