SEASON one of Bridgerton was a massive success and fans are excited to see the return of the cast in season two.
Will Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page appear on season two of the series?
Regé-Jean Page, who plays the character of Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, will not be returning for season two.
The show, which is based off of the Julia Quinn novels of the same name, follows the books in that regard, as the Duke’s character arc is mostly resolved in the first book: The Duke and I.
Fans of the series, while not shocked were definitely disappointed, as Page really shined in his role as the Duke.
For Page himself, his ending was not surprising, and his short tenure on the show was something that originally attracted him to the role in the first place.
What is season two of Bridgerton about?
While Page may not be reprising his role as the Duke of
Hastings, the show plans to continue on following the books.
The series of books work as a sort of anthology, following the romantic endeavors of different siblings and people in the Bridgerton family.
The second novel, entitled: The Viscount Who Loved Me, will focus on Anthony, played by Jonathan Bailey.
The new episodes of the series, slated for release sometime in 2022, will also introduce fan-favorite characters such as Kate Sharma, as well as the return of the Duchess herself, Daphne.
What will Regé-Jean Page be in next?
While Page will unfortunately be leaving the Bridgerton universe, he is still far from gone.
