Regé-Jean Page on Why He Isn’t Coming Back to BRIDGERTON

Brace yourself, Regé-Jean Page will not be returning to Bridgerton for season 2.


In an interview with Variety, he explained that this was the plan all along, “It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end—give us a year,” Page said. “[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.”

For those familiar with the Julia Quinn book series, the book the show is based on, this didn’t come as a surprise.  But for the rest of us, it was.

He told Variety that he is looking forward to watching the show continue without him. “I have nothing but excitement for Bridgerton continuing to steam train off and conquer the globe,” he says. “But there is also value in completing these arcs and sticking the landing.”
