Regé-Jean Page is the star of “Bridgerton” and will not appear in the second season
Los Angeles-“Bridgerton” fans, it’s time to say goodbye to Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings.
Netflix and Shondaland announced on Friday that the celebrity Regé-JeanPage will not appear in the second season of the series, and revealed the news through Mrs. Whistledown’s notice.
The message began to say: “Dear readers, when everyone’s eyes were on Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s search for a mistress, we said goodbye to Ricky Jean Page ( Regé-Jean Page), the latter triumphantly played the Duke of Hastings.”
He continued: “We will miss Simon’s presence on the screen, but he will always be a member of the Bridgetown family.” “Daphne will continue to be a loyal wife and sister, helping her brother through the coming The social season and what it offers: more conspiracy and romance than my readers can bear.”
The news of the Duke’s departure may not be surprising to fans of Julia Quinn’s novels based on the series, because the plot of the character has been greatly developed in the first book “Me and the Duke” . The news certainly did not surprise the star.
Peggy specifically told Variety Show that, in fact, short-term commitments are an important part of the role’s attractiveness.
The British-Zimbabwe superstar added that he likes the idea that “Bridgerton” is essentially an anthology, and each book (and the following season) is dedicated to telling the love story of another brother.
Therefore, the story of the elegant duke on the screen ends with the birth of Simon and Daphne’s first child, which cemented their relationship (the duke eliminated his father’s trouble). Off the screen, Peggy’s time in the Regency era is over, because the actors were only hired for one season.
He said: “Except for fantasy,’Bridgetown’ has been thriving and conquering the world. I have no illusions about it.” “However, completing these arches and landing is also valuable.
As stated in the Lady Whistledown post, the second season of the series will focus on the oldest family in the Bridgetown family, Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey) and his pursuit of love.
