The time to say goodbye to Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings, has sadly come. Netflix and Shondaland have just announced via letter from Lady Whistledown that Regé-Jean Page will not be returning for Season 2 of Bridgerton. It states, “Dear Readers, while all eyes turn to Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s quest to find a Viscountess, we bid adieu to Regé-Jean Page, who so triumphantly played the Duke of Hastings.” Whistledown continued by saying “We’ll miss Simon’s presence onscreen, but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family.” The letter also mentions that Daphne and her family will continue onward with the next social season. Although this may come as a shock to many of us, it’s not surprising if you follow the novels where the first title is “The Duke and I”.  

We will miss the Duke of Hastings but look forward to Season 2 of Bridgerton and all of Regé-Jean Page’s future projects.
