Reg-Jean Page Turned Down Major Money to Appear in ‘Bridgerton’ Season 2


In case you missed the devastating news (KIM KARDASHIAN AND I ARE NOT OKAY), The Duke of Hastings, aka Regé-Jean Page won’t be returning to Bridgerton Season 2. And apparently he turned down a truly huge payday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Regé-Jean was asked to return to the series as a guest star for 3-5 episodes of the second season, and was offered $50,000 per episode (so, up to $250,000 total). But he turned this offer down because, tragically, The Duke’s time on the show was always meant to be limited. In fact, Season 2 is shifting focus completely to Anthony Bridgerton.

“It’s a one-season arc,” Regé-Jean previously told Variety, explaining that producers told him “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.”

Netflix Lady Whistledown announced the news of Regé-Jean’s departure on Instagram, writing “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. We’ll miss Simon’s presence onscreen, but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family. 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.”

Some good news? The Hollywood Reporter’s sources say that the door remains open to Regé-Jean returning for a potential third season of Bridgerton, so fingers all the way crossed.
