Regé-Jean Just Gave a ‘Bridgerton’ Announcement We Weren’t Emotionally Prepared For

Dear Bridgerton fans, we have some devasting news. In a statement shared by Lady Whistledown on Instagram, it was revealed that fan-favorite actor Regé-Jean Page a.k.a The Duke of Hastings a.k.a all of our mutual pandemic TV boyfriend will not be returning for the upcoming season two of the scandalous Netflix series. Like most people on the internet, we’re absolutely heartbroken and certainly did not expect to get dumped by Simon Basset. We’d like to pretend that this is a late April Fools joke but alas, Page has confirmed himself that he will be pulling out from the show (pun intended). See what the actor had to say about his departure below:
