Fans of Netflix’s breakout series ‘Bridgerton’ may have bemoaned the unexpected exit of star Regé-Jean Page at the conclusion of its first season, but they were given a glimmer of hope this week when he posted a photo of himself in Milan alongside former castmate Jonathan Bailey for the city’s Fashion Week.
Instantly setting the rumor mill ablaze with murmurs of Page’s return to the 19th century-set drama, the hoopla got so loud it eventually garnered a mention from the 30-year-old himself.
Look inside to see his response.

The actor may have brought Simon Hastings to life in the Shonda Rhimes hit Netflix production, but – as a recent IG post reveals – he has no plans to revive the beloved character any time soon.
“(No, I’m not going back to the show btw – the papers made that one up.),” he added as part of the caption for the Bailey-assisted photo seen above. “But we had the best, and most stylish, catch up I’ve had in a while over some truly excellent Italian coffee and sunshine.”
But, we doubt the news will deter diehard ‘Bridgerton’ fans from tuning in to its highly anticipated third season – especially after Nicola Coughlan (who portrays Penelope Featherington) confirmed it will center on her budding love story with the younger Bridgerton brother Colin.
