The second season of “The Bridgerton Chronicle,” which premiered on Netflix on March 25, is now available. This second installment was a huge hit, breaking the first season’s viewership record. If we already knew that Simone Ashley – aka Kate Sharma – and Jonathan Bailey, who plays Anthony Bridgerton, would be returning for the rest of the series, we now know that Ruby Stokes, who plays Francesca Bridgerton, will not. After a few brief appearances in the second season, the actress did indeed leave the franchise. What is the cause? She’s been cast in a new Netflix series called “Lockwood & Co,” which will premiere later this year. “I love Francesca,” the creator of “The Bridgerton Chronicle” told “TV Line” about the young woman’s departure: “We lost her in the middle of season 2.” After exhausting all other options, she was forced to leave due to circumstances beyond our control. “
