Over the past several days, there has been an influx of rumors out there regarding a potential return for the actor, who was easily the breakout star of season 1 and used that as a launching pad for a lot of other projects. We definitely understand why people want him back, but sometimes, it turns out that an actor hanging out with a friend is just that: An actor hanging out with a friend. We say this because one of the real originating points of this rumor were a number of photos online of Page hanging out with his former co-star Jonathan Bailey.
In a post on Instagram (see below), the actor indicated strongly that he is not coming back to the show, and that some of the tabloids are way off-base with some of their rumors. Alas, we’ll just have to see this world continue without Simon on-screen…
Do we still think there’s a chance he could come back down the road? Personally, we don’t think we could rule it out as a cameo some point FAR down the road. We clearly don’t think it is something that is planned for the time being, but if this show gets to a proper final season, we do tend to think anything could happen. For now, though, Page seems to be happy to tackle a multitude of other projects.
Meanwhile, we know that there’s a lot of Bridgerton coming up in between multiple seasons and some potential off-shoots. Season 2 proved to be immensely popular, reminding us that there’s still plenty of steam left in this franchise.
Do you ever want to see Regé-Jean Page back on Bridgerton someday?
