Lady Whisteldown has reported that the Duke of Hastings will not be returning for season 2. This is not drill, Rege-Jean Page will not be in season 2 of Bridgerton.
In a letter posted on Instagram, Lady Whistledown wrote, we bid adieu to Rege-Jean Page who so triumphantly played the Duke of Hastings. We'll miss Simon's presence on screen but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family.
Rege-Jean Page commented, "It's been an absolute pleasure and a privilege joining this family...the love is real and will just keep growing."
