Bridgerton season 2: Adjoa Andoh recalls ‘squeaky’ filming days as production was ‘shut down three times over Covid’

Bridgerton season two recently wrapped filming after a mostly successful shoot, but actress Adjoa Andoh admits there were ‘squeaky days’. 

Fans are anticipating the return of the Netflix period drama, which became the streaming platform’s biggest series when it was released during lockdown late last year.

It transformed the likes of Phoebe Dynevor and Rege-Jean Page into global stars and will be back by popular demand with season two.

There were reports that production had to shut down three times due to positive Covid tests but, ultimately, it sailed on without a hitch.

Speaking about the challenges of filming during a pandemic, Adjoa said on Good Morning Britain: ‘Everything’s been tough for everybody doing all sorts of jobs during the pandemic. We had a few squeaky days but I think overall we did pretty great actually, considering it’s such a vast array of filming.’

The actress, who plays Lady Danbury in the romantic drama, admitted she was ‘grateful’ to have been able to work ‘solidly’ throughout the pandemic.

Much to everyone’s dismay, Rege-Jean will not be returning to Bridgerton for season two as the show moves onto focus on another member of the wealthy family.

Describing her former co-star as ‘fabulous’, Adjoa explained: ‘It is eight books… and we’re moving onto another sibling now so in a way, Rege’s story, the prominence of his story is done and we’re focusing on Anthony Bridgerton now and there’s a whole new family joining us and lots new machinations happening.

‘I think the show in season one was finding its feet, it was telling people we’re these new things and here’s what we’re doing. Season two knows exactly who it is so it hits the ground running, it’s funny, it’s sharp, it’s quick.’

In November, showrunner Chris Van Dusen confirmed filming was complete, and announced in an Instagram post: ‘That’s a wrap on Season Two! So proud of this cast and crew who brought their A-games to work each and every day in this very challenging year.

‘And these two in this photo with me right here. Words are not enough. Coming in 2022.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
