Is the Duke coming back to Bridgerton 3?

Sorry, fans, but Page will not be back to play the dashing duke in Bridgerton Season 3, just as he wasn’t in Season 2.

Why did Bridgerton get rid of the Duke?

Explaining why he opted not to come back, he told Variety that he initially signed on to the show because producers told him: “It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end – give us a year.” “[I thought] ‘That’s interesting,’ because then it felt like a limited series.

Why is Daphne and the duke not in Bridgerton season 2?

Page’s Duke of Hastings, who married Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) in the first season, would have been a background player at best in the second. Page opted to pursue his burgeoning movie career and (minor spoiler alert) does not appear at all in season 2, which debuts March 25. His absence is sorely felt.
