“Bridgerton” has paused filming Season 2 after two people on set tested positive for COVID-19 in the past few days.
Production resumed on Friday but was paused again on Saturday due to another person contracting COVID-19. A spokesperson for Netflix did not say whether the second person who contracted the virus was a cast or crew member and declined to provide additional details to HuffPost.

“Bridgerton” is the first scripted Netflix show to come out of the multi-year deal struck between the streaming service and Shonda Rhimes’ production company, Shondaland.
The Regency drama — which Netflix has said is its “biggest series ever” — racked up 12 Emmy nominations on Tuesday. Shondaland and Netflix announced in May that the “Bridgerton” universe was expanding with an upcoming limited series prequel about a young Queen Charlotte.
