Rege-Jean Page is reportedly in discussions to return to Bridgerton following his departure from Season 1 of the period drama. Yes, we know it sounds too good to be true. Read on for everything we know about this exciting new feature to The Ton.
Rege-Jean was always open to his desire to resume the show after the first season and move on to other projects, according to an unnamed source. However, recent discussions have begun between him and the show''s headlines. Nothing has been officially agreed yet, but watch this space.
In Season 1, Page was the first raffish bachelor, Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings. A stir ensued when his rebellious character was confronted with a ruthless snog, which he pretended to be. Despite their refusal to settle down and happily single, Bassett realizes what she has lost, and after sharing a steamy snog in a hole, they are left to follow the harsh expectations of the era.
Though the love journey never fails, the couple eventually achieve their own fairytale ending, and according to Page, that goodly linked-up ending was part of his motivation for leaving the show despite the fact his on-screen wife stayed on for the next season.
Page, the new face of Armani Code, recounts his earlier conversations with Bridgertons producers Shondaland and explaining his reasoning in a one-season arc.
It will have a beginning, middle, and final 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.
Page left the crazed door open, even as he discussed his early departure. When GQ quizzed him on the prospect of a future comeo, guest appearance, or a full-blown return, he remained calm. First, before adding, isnt there anything wonderful about being surprised by what you werent suspecting?
