sorry guys Regé-Jean Page has denied a report that he is returning to Bridgerton for the third season of the hit Netflix show. Page played Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings, in the first series of the historical drama, but did not return for the second season. Here’s what you need to know.
The show, based on a book series of the same name by Julia Quinn, follows the eight siblings of the Bridgerton family as they try to find love in Regency England. After being pictured in Milan with former co-star Jonathan Bailey, rumors swirled that Page was in talks to return for season three. A source recently told The Sun that “there has been dialogue between him and the show’s bosses” but “nothing has been formally agreed yet”.

However, Page was quick to shut down the rumors on Instagram, writing, “The boys are back in town. (No, I’m not going back to the show, by the way – the papers made that up.) But we had the best and most stylish catch-up I’ve had in a long time, over some really excellent Italian coffee and sunshine. ”
Each Bridgerton series focuses on a different Bridgerton sibling. The first followed Daphne’s (Phoebe Dynevor) romance with the Duke of Hastings and the second told the story of Bailey’s character Anthony (Jonathan Bailey)’s relationship with Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley).
The third season deviates from the order of the Julia Quinn novel series and focuses on Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) and Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan).
Meanwhile, Page’s former co-star Nicola Coughlan told Netflix’s Tudum of the upcoming story: “I have a feeling if you see Penelope flattering this boy for another season, you’re going to be like, ‘Pull yourself together! Come on, go ahead and overcome it. Jess has been talking to Luke and I all season and I think people are going to be really obsessed. I think book fans will be happy.”
