The statement concluded: “Yours truly, Lady Whistledown.”
Needless to say, it didn’t take long for distraught Bridgerton fans to respond to the announcement to express their dismay.
Blasting the decision, one fan replied: “Well, not sure what the point of watching this now. We all know that Simon was the reason why most of us were watching this :/.”
A second was also in disbelief: “What? He’s still in the rest of the books, although usually as a background character, WHAT ABOUT THE PALL MALL GAME.”
