Whether it's because of scheduling conflicts or on-set drama, actors seem to get replaced all the time.

The Netflix series 'Bridgerton' was the runaway success of a lifetime, and fans are already chomping at the bit for season three. It seems that some of the young cast members didn't see themselves as recurring characters in a long-running TV series and chose to leave the show, like Regé-Jean Page who left the Duke behind after season one. Now, the actress who played the sixth-oldest Bridgerton sibling, Ruby Stokes, has announced that she is leaving the cast to star in another Netflix series, 'Lockwood & Co.' The role of Francesca Bridgerton will be taken over by Hannah Dodd, known for playing young Sophie in 'Anatomy of a Scandal.'

'Bridgerton' is based on a series of books by author Julia Quinn, and readers will know that Francesca Bridgerton will become a major character in a future season.
