Bridgerton star teases how Rege-Jean Page's departure will impact season two of Netflix hit

BRIDGERTON'S Adjoa Andoh has teased how Rege-Jean Page's departure will impact season two of the Netflix smash hit.

The hunky actor left Bridgerton fans devastated when he confirmed he would not be returning for a second season as Simon, the Duke of Hastings.


Simon found love with Daphne Bridgerton in the first season of the Netflix period drama, and the story will move on to Daphne's brother Anthony for its second outing.

Fans may be wondering where Simon's departure leaves Adjoa's character Lady Danbury – who took the Duke under her wing following the death of his mother – but the actress has reassured them there's plenty still to come from the sharp-tongued doyenne.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Adjoa said: "Well, if you remember, at the start of season one, the Duke had been absent for a while.

"Lady Danbury has many fish to fry, and many people who she loves and wishes to challenge and support – you'll see more of that going forward."

She continued: "I think there's plenty to keep Lady Danbury busy, Duke or no Duke. There are pies with her fingers in, all over."

Rege-Jean previously explained that being part of Bridgerton for one season only was a big part of the appeal for the role.

Speaking about his early conversations with producers, he said: "'It's a one-season arc. It's going to have a beginning, middle, end – give us a year,'

"[I thought] 'That's interesting,' because then it felt like a limited series. I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit and then the Bridgerton family rolls on."

Meanwhile Executive Producer Shonda Rhimes said: "There are eight Bridgerton siblings, and as far as I'm concerned, there are eight Bridgerton seasons. And maybe more."

Season two of Bridgerton will premiere on Netflix in March 2022, while season one is available now.
