A single season of eight episodes wasn’t enough to satisfy the fans of Bridgerton. So much so that Shonda Rhimes and her production team immediately confirmed that the series would not only be renewed for a second season on Netflix, but the third and fourth would also come with Luke Thompson and Luke Newton as the respective lead characters.
In this second edition, which started filming and has now been interrupted by a case of coronavirus, Bridgerton plays Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anthony. It is for the same reason that Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page, the main protagonists of the first part, were disregarded and in fact he confirmed his departure from the series a few months ago.
Regé broke the hearts of thousands of fans and made it clear via social media that she would no longer be part of the fiction based on Julia Quinn’s books. More than once, however, it was emphasized that the one who would attend would be Phoebe Dynevor so that her character would be the one to help her brother, Anthony, find love in the comic.
But now it seems the situation has changed as Dynevor has probably said goodbye to the fiction that catapulted her to international fame. As confirmed by Deadline, the actress found her next big job on the big screen as becomes the brand new protagonist of I Heart Murder, a new Sony Pictures movie directed by Matt Spicer.
And while the plot is currently being kept a secret, Deadline’s post mentions that the film will be a female-driven thriller, marking a radical change of record for the star of Bridgerton. Although, it should be noted, for the peace of his fans, the shooting of this new project would not coincide with that of the Netflix series, thus not jeopardizing his participation.
