Bridgerton resumes production on season 2 after shut down due to Covid

Bridgerton is back: Hit Netflix show resumes production on season two after shutting down due to two positive Covid tests on set

Bridgerton creator Chris Van Dusen confirmed that production has resumed on the highly-anticipated second season after two positive coronavirus tests shut it down.

‘We are back under way. We had to delay because of Covid, but we’re back in it,’ the 61-year-old showrunner told Variety on Tuesday.

‘Right now I’m in post, editing our first couple episodes, which are looking great.’

Season two is based on Julia Quinn’s 2000 sequel The Viscount Who Loved Me, which is centered on Anthony Bridgerton’s (Jonathan Bailey) quest to find a suitable partner.

‘We pick up Anthony after we’ve seen what he’s been through with his mistress,’ Van Dusen teased.

‘He’s thinking, “Was that love?” Some would call it that, others would not. We’re exploring those concepts of duty and honor once again…I hope people love this season and beyond as much as they did the first.’

Newcomers to the critically-acclaimed Shondaland show will include Simone Ashley, Charithra Chandran, Rupert Evans, Rupert Young, Shelley Conn, and Calam Lynch.
