Rege-Jean Page portrayed the dashing Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings in the first series of Bridgerton. The Netflix drama came out on Christmas Day 2020 and proved to be an instant hit, thanks to actor Page and actress Phoebe Dynevor who led the cast as Daphne Bridgerton. However, Page announced today, Friday, April 2, that he would not be returning for the second season.
Bridgerton is based on the best-selling books written by Julia Quinn.
The drama revolves around the Bridgerton family and the siblings’ individual stories in love, their search for it and in the case of Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie), how to avoid it.
Daphne was ready to get married and despite their initial relationship not getting off to the best start, she fell head over heels for Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings.
He was the show’s main heartthrob in season one but unfortunately, Simon won’t be back for the second season.
