While this will certainly disappoint fans of Simon and Daphne, it hardly comes as a surprise. Rege-Jean Page was only contracted for the first season, which adapted the first book of Quinn’s Bridgerton series, The Duke and I.
Netflix and Shondaland fittingly shared the news about Rege-Jean Page’s departure via Lady Whistledown.
“We’ll miss Simon’s presence onscreen, but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family,” the message read. “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.”
Page said it was “an honor to be a member of the family.” Earlier this year he told Variety that he joined the show because he was promised a “one-season arc” with his character.
After Shondaland producers pitched the actor on the Duke of Hastings role in this way, Page said he remembers thinking: “‘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.”
