Sharing a snap of himself with his co-star Jonathan Bailey, who took over as the lead in season two, he captioned the post: "The boys are back in town. (No, I’m not going back to the show btw - the papers made that one up.) But we had the best, and most stylish, catch-up I’ve had in a while over some truly excellent Italian coffee and sunshine."

The Sun recently reported that the 34-year-old was in talks to appear in season three. According to the publication, nothing has been formally agreed but there is a dialogue between him and the show's bosses. 

Regé-Jean hinted at a possible return during an interview with GQ back in September last year. When asked about the possibility of returning to the show, he replied: "You know I couldn't tell you! […] Isn’t there something wonderful about being surprised by what you weren't suspecting?"

He also previously told Variety that his story was a "one-season arc", explaining: "One of the things that is different about this [romance] genre is that the audience knows the arc completes. They come in knowing that, so you can tie people in emotional knots because they have that reassurance that we're going to come out and we're going to have the marriage and the baby."
