Netflix’s Bridgerton has added four new cast members.

Charithra Chandran, Shelley Conn, Calam Lynch, and Rupert Young will star in season 2 of the romantic drama series.

Get the details for each of their characters below:

Charithra Chandran as Edwina Sharma – Taught by her older sister Kate to be the perfect debutante, Edwina is kind-natured and endlessly endearing. But while she may be young and naive, she also knows what she wants: a true love match.

Shelley Conn as Mary Sharma – An Earl’s daughter whose marriage to a tradesman once embroiled her family in scandal. Lady Mary returns to London with her own daughters and is forced to endure the scrutiny of the ton yet again.

Calam Lynch as Theo Sharpe – Theo is a hardworking printer’s assistant. But he’s not just a working class man, he’s also an intellectual who fights for the rights for all.

Rupert Young as Jack – The newest member of the ton with a connection to one of its most notable families.

The casting news comes shortly after the reveal that season 1 breakout Regé-Jean Page would not return for the second season.

“While all eyes turn to Lord Anthony Bridgerton’s quest to find a Viscountess, we bid adieu to Regé-Jean Page, who so triumphantly played the Duke of Hastings. We’ll miss Simon’s presence onscreen, but he will always be a part of the Bridgerton family.  Daphne will remain a devoted wife and sister, helping her brother navigate the upcoming social season and what it has to offer – more intrigue and romance than my readers may be able to bear,” reads the letter from Lady Whistledown.

So, are you excited to see these four new characters enter the world of Bridgerton? Or too disappointed about Page’s exit to get ready for new possibilities? Let us know in the comments.
