On Friday it was reported that the shoot for Bridgerton has been paused for 24 hours after a crew member tested positive for coronavirus. However, just a day after that, Deadline reported that the shoot has been suspended indefinitely due to the COVID-19 scare. This is the second time the shoot of the Netflix series has been canned in a day amid the time when the UK is planning to open the country fully on Monday.

Bridgerton marks the first outing of Shonda Rhimes on Netflix and the show is created by Chris Van Dusen. The series dropped in 2020 and became one of the most viewed shows on the streaming platform across the globe. Bridgerton is based on novels by Julia Quinn and not just the second season, the series has been renewed for the third and the fourth season too.

In the recently announced 73rd Emmy Nominations, the show bagged 12 nods including Drama Series, Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Regé-Jean Page who plays Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings. While Julie Anne Robinson received a nomination for Directing for a Drama Series. Legendary actor Julie Andrews has been nominated for Character Voice-Over Performance. 

The other nominations include Casting for a Drama Series, Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (One Hour), Period Costumes, Period and/or Character Hairstyling, Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score), Original Main Title Theme Music, Music Supervision and Production Design for a Narrative Period or Fantasy Program (One Hour or More).

The members of the Bridgerton family is played by Jonathan Bailey, Phoebe Dynevor, Ruth Gemmell, Florence Hunt, Claudia Jessie, Luke Newton, Luke Thompson and Will Tilston.

Regé-Jean, who played the lead in the first season will not be a part of the second season much to the dismay of the fans.
