Because a positive corona case was found in the crew of ‘Bridgerton’, filming had to be interrupted. This poses major challenges for production.
Fans eagerly await the second season of the drama series ‘Bridgerton’. All the more worrying about the latest news from the set. Because the current shoot had to be interrupted because of a positive corona test result.
‘Bridgerton’ shoot has been interrupted
The work, which was in full swing, was stopped immediately, according to the newspaper ‘The Sun’, and all cast members and stars were immediately tested and isolated. Apparently, those responsible for Netflix have sat down to discuss how to proceed. Resuming shooting after 24 hours is probably an option, but whether it is safe enough is yet to be decided. ‘This is a logistical nightmare when it comes to protecting staff, preventing an outbreak or containing it when it has already been detected,’ a source told the Sun.
‘It’s also a headache for producers because removing cast members or staff members and isolating them means they’ll have to be replaced in the short term, and that’s not always possible,’ he explains.
Worry about Netflix bosses
The chief concern is that the next big production is coming up soon: the shooting of the new season of ‘The Crown’.
‘Netflix went to great lengths to ensure that all relevant measures were in place in’ Bridgerton ‘, but it just goes to show how difficult it is to make such a large set completely Covid-proof. That doesn’t bode well for the filming of ‘The Crown’, which starts every day and will be of the same epic proportions, ‘the insider explains.
The first season of ‘Bridgerton’ aired on Netflix in December 2020 and broke all records with 82 million views. In January, the streaming service confirmed that a second season was being shot.
