Bridgerton breakout and crush extraordinaire Regé-Jean Web page is not going to return to the present for Season 2. Netflix shared the information Friday morning within the type of a Whistledown paper that claims it is time to “bid adieu” to Simon Bassett.
Simon’s story ended with him married to Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) as the 2 welcomed a son. We think they have more work to do as a couple, however alas, the showrunners felt in a different way. Daphne will stay on the present, helping brother Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) in his quest to search out love in Season 2.
In keeping with Selection, Web page at all times knew the journey could be brief however fulfilling — ever since early conversations with the producers. “It’s a one-season arc,” he said. “It’s going to have a starting, center, finish – give us a 12 months. [I thought,] ‘That’s attention-grabbing,’ as a result of then it felt like a restricted sequence. I get to return in, I get to contribute my bit after which the Bridgerton household rolls on.”
The Bridgerton books by Julia Quinn are broadly out there to spoil the present, and whereas Simon does seem past e book one, his position is considerably smaller. Whether or not or not Web page would possibly pop by for a cameo because the beloved Duke stays to be seen… Expensive reader, you realize we’ll keep tuned.
