The next introduction will be with Anthony, another love interest which will be played by Simone Ashley playing the role of Kate Sharma portrayed as a smart, headstrong young woman who suffers to no fools including Anthony Bridgerton. Casting Simone Ashley was one way to reaffirm the reinventions of the regency era of England by showcasing a much higher class of society.

Regé-Jean Page will not return in Bridgerton Season 2
Much to the horror of the Bridgerton fans, the Duke of Hastings played by Regé-Jean Page will not be appearing in the show. The actor in an interview stated, “It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end—give us a year. It felt like a limited series. I get to come in, I get to contribute my bit and then the Bridgerton family rolls on.”
The actor also paid his tribute and a final goodbye to the show through an Instagram post.
