The whole reason you kept watching the Gossip Girl gone victorian was because the sex pot named Duke of Hastings was keeping things exciting under the sheets. Now that’s no more.
Break out star Regé-Jean Page is leaving the show and will not return for Season 2.
Page had always been contracted to do just one season, as it was written in the original Bridgerton book. But some hoped he would be made permanent.
His character will be referenced going forward though he won’t appear. As a Bridgerton, Dynevor’s Daphne will continue to be a part of the series, Lady Whistledown confirmed.
Season two of Bridgerton will follow the pursuit of marriage for the eldest Bridgerton sibling, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), as chronicled in the second book of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series, The Viscount Who Loved Me.
