‘Bridgerton’ season 2 production shuts down following positive COVID tests on set

Acclaimed Netflix original series Bridgerton's production has been halted for indefinite period of time, following the positive COVID test results amongst the crew.

The popular Netflix romantic-drama series was currently under production for its second season in the U.K.

Reports have confirmed that the hit drama had to shutter the sets temporarily on Thursday, after another crew member contracted COVID-19 in the last week.

The filming resumed on Friday but was suspended indefinitely on Saturday after second person tested positive. It remains unknown whether the second diagnosis was of a crew or cast member. It was further revealed that Netflix has stringent testing protocols in place.

Bridgerton, produced by Shondaland for Netflix, is based on Julia Quinn's bestselling series of romance novels about the marital misadventures of the Bridgerton family in England.

The first season was a breakout hit, becoming Netflix's most-viewed series ever, and also grabbed 12 Emmy nominations this week, including Outstanding Drama Series and Best Actor in a Drama Series for lead actor Regé-Jean Page.
