Rege-Jean Page Exits 'Bridgerton,' Phoebe Dynevor's Season 2 Fate Also Revealed

Netflix has announced some big news about Bridgerton season 2 and sadly the show’s star Rege-Jean Page will not be returning.

“Dear Readers, while all eyes turn to Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s quest to find a Viscountess, we bid adieu to Regé-Jean Page, who so triumphantly played the Duke of Hastings,” a message from the streaming service read. “We’ll miss Simon’s presence onscreen, but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family.”

Thankfully, Netflix did confirm that Phoebe Dynevor will return as Daphne, though it’s not clear how big her role will be in season two.

The statement added, “Daphne will remain a devoted wife and sister, helping her brother navigate the upcoming social season and what it has to offer – more intrigue and romance than my readers may be able to bear.”

Rege said in a new interview with Variety that he always knew his role would be a one-season arc and that was part of the appeal for him.

“It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end – give us a year,” he said. “[I thought] ‘That’s interesting,’ because then it felt like a limited series. I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit and then the Bridgerton family rolls on.”

He added about the show essentially being an anthology series, “One of the things that is different about this [romance] genre is that the audience knows the arc completes. They come in knowing that, so you can tie people in emotional knots because they have that reassurance that we’re going to come out and we’re going to have the marriage and the baby.”

Some big casting news for the upcoming season was announced this week!
