Bridgerton spoilers and updates tease that fans still can’t get over the fact that they won’t be seeing Regé-Jean Page reprising his role as the Duke of Hastings in the upcoming season, seeing how he might have been the one and only reason why they tuned in to the Regency-era romance drama in the first place.

Bridgerton Spoilers – Why Did Regé-Jean Page Turn Down An Offer To Return?

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the British actor signed a one-year deal with the Netflix series, which focuses on one of the Bridgerton siblings and their love life each season.

The first season, of course, was all about Simon Basset’s romance and marriage to Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor). And while the handsome actor was asked to return for three to five episodes for an estimated $50,000 each, he turned down the offer for a number of reasons.

By now everyone knows that Regé-Jean Page has become a huge household name because of Bridgerton, and has even been tipped to become the next James Bond and the first actor of color in the role. What’s more, he also made a splashy debut in Saturday Night Live and has several projects in the pipeline, including The Gray Man and the film adaptation of Dungeons and Dragons. If that weren’t enough, he also won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series.
