Rhimes appeared on the former president's Why Am I Telling You This? podcast, where Clinton revealed that he and wife Hillary Clinton had binged on Bridgerton and that “the sun was coming up Sunday morning when we finished it.” While the pair discussed Rhimes' other TV shows, Clinton wanted to know about Page's exit after one season. “So is it going to be hard to keep it going? And are we ever going to see Regé‑Jean again?” Clinton asked Rhimes, according to Deadline. “I always say to people, the Duke is never gone," said Rhimes. "He’s just sort of waiting to be binge watched all over again. But we really only… The whole idea is that, and this is very different for television, that we’re going to tell a close ended love story. Every season is exciting to me because then you don’t have to come up with fake reasons why the couple can’t be together anymore. You get to actually fulfill the story that was meant to be told and then let them go on. So that’s kind of the plan.” Clinton said that when he and his wife watched Page on Bridgerton, “Hillary just kept saying over and over again all night long, ‘That’s the most beautiful man I ever saw on television.’ I kept wanting him to get bumped off after a while. But it was a brilliant show, and the other characters were good. And I think we all learned something watching it.” ALSO: Bridgerton's Adjoa Andoh explains why Regé-Jean Page's makes sense for the show.
