Bridgerton 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.

It then resumed filming in August but was stopped again on September 5 when more positive cases of coronavirus were detected on set.

The upcoming season of the show is going to focus on the eldest of the Bridgerton siblings, Anthony in his quest to find love.

Sex Education star Simone 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). 

Fans were devastated to find out that Regé-Jean Page would not be returning to play Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings.

The series, which is produced by Shonda Rhimes, has already been commissioned for seasons three and four.

We can’t wait.

Bridgerton is available to watch on Netflix.
