Inside Rege-Jean Page's 'Bridgerton' Departure



Page originally signed on to the series with a one-year deal to play male lead Simon Basset.
The plan from the start was for each season of the drama to focus on a different one of the eight Bridgerton siblings and their quest for marriage. 
Page was offered an opportunity to return as a guest star in 3 to 5 episodes of season 2 ($50,000 an episode)
Page was drawn to Bridgerton because the role was a "one-season arc" with a "beginning, middle, end"
Page's camp has also been flooded with film offers following his breakout role in Bridgerton.
Nearly everyone close to the show knew Page only had a one-year deal for Bridgerton.
Production reached out to Page's camp in January or February with an offer to return.
Even though plans for season two never included his character, Simon.
