Rege-Jean Page loves his character Simon but is happy to leave him in the past.
As for coming back to the show as a fan-favorite, The Duke of Hastings? That is not happening. Page confirmed that he is not returning to the show and said that Netflix is free to recast him if they choose, “They are free to do as they like.”
He is thrilled with how his character’s redemptive arc- The Duke of Hastings starts the season as arrogant, rude, and overwhelmed with demons from his past.
