Despite the fact that we won't be seeing the Duke return for Bridgerton season 2, we'll be seeing a lot more of Regé-Jean Page in the near future, as he has a new project in the works at Netflix alongside fellow heart throbs Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.
All three stars have joined the ensemble cast for Netflix's upcoming film The Gray Man, which is expected to be the streaming services most expensive feature film yet!
Production is set to begin this month in Los Angeles and the logline says it will follow the story of "a freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling) as he's hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former cohort of Gentry's at the CIA."
The Gray Man is based on a bestselling book of the same name by author Mark Greaney, first published in 2009.
The film adaptation has been in development since 2016, with Christopher McQuarrie attached to direct. When those plans fell through, Netflix picked up the rights to make the film in July last year. The streamer has set a $200 million (£144,761,000.00) budget.
Ana De Armas, Alfre Woodard, Billy Bob Thornton, Jessica Henwick, Wagna Moura, Dhanush, and Julia Butters round out the cast.
Regé-Jean Page will be extremely busy this year because he has also signed up to star in an adaption of Dungeons & Dragons with The Undoing star Hugh Grant and Michelle Rodriguez.
But if Bridgerton season 2 is all you can think about, you'll be pleased to know that the second instalment is due to begin production in the UK this spring.
The period drama - which became Netflix's biggest series shortly after it dropped in December - was renewed for a second season in January.
The second instalment is set to focus on Daphne's brother Anthony and his pursuit of a wife, according to an intriguing 'pamphlet' written by none other than Lady Whistledown that circulated on social media.
Last month, Sex Education star Simone Ashley was cast in the new lead character Kate - Anthony's love interest.
We currently don't know how much we'll see of the Duke and Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) in season 2 but both characters are expected to appear in some capacity.
