The Netflix hit period drama had been filming in London and Bath since March of 2021 until production was halted in mid-July when a crew member tested positive for Covid-19.
While production was resumed the following day, it was halted again within 24 hours following the second positive case on set for an indefinite break.
Bridgerton then resumed filming in August but was stopped again when more positive cases of coronavirus were detected on set.
A source told The Sun: ‘Filming has been in chaos due to Covid and bosses are hopping mad.
‘Dramas like The Crown have got their production moving without a hitch. It’s embarrassing they don’t seem to be able to do the same.
‘This outbreak has taken down members of cast and crew, who were told filming would be halted until further notice.’
The publication also reported that production was shut down by an ‘outbreak among cast and crew’ which apparently has left producers ‘fuming’.
It is still unclear what these delays will mean in terms of when the second season of Bridgerton will land on our screens.
The upcoming season of the show is going to focus on the eldest of the Bridgerton siblings, Anthony (played by Jonathan Bailey) in his quest to find love.
Sex Education star Simone Ashley has joined the cast as Kate Sharma, a smart, headstrong young woman who will enchant our Anthony even though he is set to marry her younger sister Edwina (Charithra Chandran).
Bridgerton also delivered some very disappointing news to its fans earlier this year when they confirmed that breakout star Regé-Jean Page would not be returning to play Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings.
However, the star recently seemed open to the possibility of making a quick return as a guest or cameo role.
