The Netflix series, Bridgerton, has been put to a halt after a member of the crew tested positive for Covid-19.

The series is filming season 2 in the UK and although safety procedures are in place there has been a positive test for Covid-19 among the crew.

Netflix told The Mirror, “Following the detection of a positive COVID-19 case within the crew on the production of Bridgerton, filming was immediately paused to allow for an isolated round of testing of everyone involved in the series.”

They added that any close contacts were isolating and that the health and safety of the cast and crew was their first priority.

Luckily they were able to resume filming after taking the necessary procedures.

A source told the sun that the threat of the virus isn’t ideal for the show’s producers, “It’s also a headache for producers because removing cast or crew and putting them into isolation means they have to be replaced at short notice, and that’s not always possible.

“Netflix have gone to great lengths to ensure all the relevant measures are in place on Bridgerton, but this just goes to show how difficult it is for such a large set to be completely Covid-secure.”

Hopefully, they don’t have any more positive tests while filming!

Galway native Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington in the show, opened up about what the second series will be like in a new interview.

Speaking on RTÉ Radio 1’s Morning Ireland, she spoke about being back on set; “Back in the corset and the wigs! We’re deep into it, but it’s so exciting to be back at work, it’s been brilliant.”

Chatting about the new season Nicola was careful as she didn’t want to give away too much, and that she was “trying to think what I can say without getting in trouble with Netflix.”

“It’s very exciting. Bridgerton is based on a book series by Julia Quinn and there’s eight stories so there’s eight Bridgerton siblings.”

Continuing she said; “This series moves on to Anthony Bridgerton’s story. Penelope’s definitely still doing her… Oh gosh, I was about to say – it’s a huge spoiler!”

“If you know what happened at the end of the series, lots more of that is happening. Ok, just stopped myself in time!”
