The Duke is gone. Regé-Jean Page, who became a global sweetheart as the dashing Duke of Hastings in Season 1 of Bridgerton, will not be part of Season 2 of Shondaland’s hit Netflix series. The news was revealed by no other than the show’s intrepid Lady Whistledown.
However, the leading lady, Phoebe Dynevor, will be back. “Daphne will remain a devoted wife and sister, helping her brother navigate the upcoming social season and what it has to offer — more intrigue and romance than my readers may be able to bear,” the message continued.
