'Bridgerton' star Regé-Jean Page's exit from the Netflix series has Hollywood buzzing

The Hollywood Reporter wrote on Tuesday in just the latest postmortem on his exit that the actor had signed a one-year deal, but was then “offered an opportunity to return as a guest star in three to five episodes of season two — at a rate of $ 50,000 an episode — but declined.”

Page had already said that he was drawn to his role because it only had a “one-season arc.” He told Variety: “I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit and then the ‘Bridgerton’ family rolls on.”

THR further reported on Tuesday that, “Sources say nearly everyone close to the show knew Page only had a one-year deal,” and that Page has been “laser-focused on his burgeoning film career.”
