Alas, dear readers. The Duke is leaving London once again, and this time, he shan’t return.
Regé-Jean Page, one of the breakout stars of Netflix’s hit series Bridgerton, will not be returning for the show’s second season. In season 1, Page played the role of Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings. He starred opposite Phoebe Dynevor, who plays Daphne Bridgerton. Season 1 followed them, and the rest of the Bridgerton family and others, as they created a ruse of courting in an effort to help Daphne find a real husband.
Bridgerton season 2 will place focus on Daphne’s brother Anthony, the eldest Bridgerton sibling, as he sets out to find himself a viscountess. The season will welcome new cast members including Simone Ashley, Charithra Chandran, and Rupert Young.
Stream season 1 of Bridgerton now on Netflix.
