It’s Official: Rege-Jean Page Will Not Be Returning For ‘Bridgerton’ Season 2

The news came directly from Netflix.

There is no denying Regé-Jean Page, our sexy Duke of Hastings, was a highlight of Bridgerton. His blossoming relationship with Daphne, the constant shirtless shots as he boxed out his feelings… we loved it all.

But sadly, for those eagerly awaiting season 2 of our favourite Regency era series, Regé-Jean Page won’t be returning – with news coming directly from Lady Whistledown herself.

Thankfully, the news wasn’t a shock for Regé-Jean Page, who responded positively on his own Twitter, saying “Pleasure and a privilege! An honour to be a member of the family – on and off screen, cast, crew and incredible fans – the love is real and will just keep growing.”

So what will this mean for the Duke of Hastings? Will we see Daphne Bridgerton left a widow with a newborn? Or will the Duke still be around, just not on screen? We’re really hoping for the latter here – we’re just far too invested in that love story.
