Of course those of us who love the hit Shonda Rhimes Netflix show “Bridgerton” were shocked when we heard that break-out star Rege-Jean Page who played The Duke of Hastings would not be returning, and yes we wondered why. Well now it looks like answers are beginning to surface about why Rege-Jean Page really left. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rege only had a one season contract with the show. Obviously, they didn’t anticipate him becoming the break-out star of the show, and when he was offered the opportunity to return for $50,000 per episode, he turned it down. Another alleged reason is that Simon would not return as a main character on the show. Plus according to Page 6 the last reason is “allegedly” because he and Shonda Rhimes had creative differences. Dang I don’t know if the show will be the same without him, but it was just announced that Bridgerton has been picked up for season’s 3 and 4.
