Will Rege-Jean Page return to the show?
Sadly, Rege-Jean will not be returning for the second season of Bridgerton.

He told Variety: "It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end — give us a year.’

In Julia Quinn's second novel The Viscount Who Loved Me, Anthony becomes Viscount Bridgerton after his father dies from a bee sting.
