And although we thought the Web’s response to Regé-Jean’s departure from Bridgerton was legitimate, Shonda revealed that she did not count on that type of response. “I do not assume I anticipated all people to have such a response to it,” she admitted. “My assumption of what folks knew of romance novels was… I overestimated an incredible deal.”

Nonetheless, she understands the place the followers are coming from, including, “Individuals’s attachment to {couples} is actual—I imply, I do know that higher than anyone,” Rhimes defined. “And I believe which means success. However I do perceive their despair.”

Although we should not count on to see a return from Regé-Jean, Shonda assured followers that Bridgerton is nowhere close to over, with Netflix renewing the present till season 4, and way more to come back. “There are eight Bridgerton siblings, and so far as I am involved, there are eight Bridgerton seasons. And perhaps extra.”
