'Bridgerton' Renewed for Two More Seasons
The news comes as fans continue to grapple with the departure of Regé-Jean Page.
Netflix has renewed Bridgerton for a third and fourth season. The series’ official Twitter account broke the news on Tuesday, posting a message from Lady Whistledown herself: “It seems we have a rather special announcement,” the letter begins. “Bridgerton shall return for seasons three and four. This author shall have to purchase more ink…”
The news comes shortly after Regé-Jean Page announced his exit from the Regency-era drama, a turn of events that left many viewers dismayed. Show creator Shonda Rhimes addressed the outrage surrounding Page’s departure in a recently published interview with Vanity Fair, saying she was “really shocked” by fan response. Rhimes also confirmed that Page was invited to return for season two cameos, clarifying that his character, the Duke of Hastings, still exists in the wider Bridgerton universe. “We didn’t kill him, he’s still alive!” she said.
Bridgerton season 2, which will introduce several new cast members, is currently in production.
