Is Bridgerton leading lady Phoebe Dynevor leaving after season 2?

There's new rumours around the 'Ton...

| Updated:

The ‘Ton is talking again. And rumour has it a new role leaves Phoebe Dynevor’s position as Bridgerton’s most desirable in jeopardy.

The actress, who plays Daphne Bridgerton, is joining new romantic drama Exciting Times.

However, it’s caused concern for fans who believe her availability too tight to film the Netflix period drama.

Her on-screen husband Rege-Jean Page has already left the series. So in theory, the door is open for her to join him away from London’s elite.

But don’t get too worried just yet – as Phoebe’s already filmed Bridgerton season 2. So we haven’t seen the last of Daphne just yet.

However, what happens beyond season two is still unknown. Bridgerton has already been given the go-ahead to at least season four.
