Dear reader, we’re still slightly annoyed that Regé-Jean Page (Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings) isn’t returning for Bridgerton season two. However, Phoebe Dynevor (Daphne Bridgerton) recently opened up about the new episodes and revealed that her on-screen lover won’t be totally forgotten.
This week, the 26-year-old actress sat down for an interview with The Wrap, where she shared never-before-heard details about Bridgerton season two. Although Dynevor confirmed that it’s “definitely different” from previous installments, she confirmed that Simon will be (verbally) included in the story line.
“I think he’ll definitely be referred to a lot. I think we’ll see the baby,” she said. “And we’ll just focus more on her relationship with the Bridgerton family.”
Despite Page’s absence, Dynevor assured fans that season two will live up to the hype, adding, “I think that’s honestly the joy of the show in the long-term, getting to see these different love stories play out. And no two seasons will be the same, and they’ll have a different excitement.”
