This is the second time in the past week the Netflix drama has been halted due to Covid.
Filming of Season 2 of popular period drama Bridgerton has been suspended indefinitely following the second positive case amongst the team in a week.
Production of the hit show was paused for 24 hours last Thursday after a crew member tested positive for the virus. It has not been specified if the new case was amongst the cast or crew.
Production of the television series will be put on hold for the foreseeable future as Shondland, the show’s production company, try to figure out how to continue filming as the delta variant is on the rise in the UK.
Bridgerton, which is based on Julia Quinn’s novels, was a massive commercial success on Netflix in 2020 and was renewed for a 2nd, 3rd and 4th season after the positive reception of season 1. Production for the new season began in May.
Bridgerton recently received 12 Emmy nominations including one for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Period Costumes. Regé-Jean Page who played the role of Simon Basset was also nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. The British actor will not be returning for any of the new seasons.
