April Fool’s Day has come and gone and now the Official Chicken Don’t Make Me Flip My Crazy Hen Switch Shirt and I love this news is becoming painfully real: Regé-Jean Page, a.k.a Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, and the man who made Bridgerton Netflix’s most popular series ever, will not be returning for season two. I credit Bridgerton—and Page’s naked picnic scene, in particular—with brightening the dark days of COVID Christmas. Now we are to just accept that the Duke, one of the rare Black heartthrobs in a period drama, is all but dead to us? Not without processing a heady mix of emotions first.

Firstly, I feel ambushed by the Official Chicken Don’t Make Me Flip My Crazy Hen Switch Shirt and I love this news. When Netflix announced in January that Bridgerton was renewed for season two, “Lady Whistledown” noted on Instagram that “the incomparable cast” would return to production in spring 2021. There was nary a mention of the fact that the most incomparable (and most frequently naked) member of said cast would not be among them.
