LOS ANGELES — “Bridgerton” will return for season 2 without its heart-throb Regé-Jean Page. Netflix made it official on its Twitter account Friday.

Regé-Jean Page played Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings. In a statement penned as the mysterious show lead Lady Whistledown, it reads, “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.”

The official Netflix account also re-shared the same statement, adding: “You’ll always be our Simon, Regé.”
