Netflix has reportedly halted the production of its fan-favourite series, ‘Bridgerton’ following a new positive Covid-19 test result.
According to Variety, reps of the streaming platform have remained silent on if the positive result was from a member of the cast or crew.
However, production was first halted for 24 hours after a crew member tested positive for the virus last Thursday.
Production kicked off for a new season of the sensational regency-era drama in May 2021 in London landmark, the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich.
This followed the viral report that Netflix had renewed the show for a second and third season.
The indefinite hiatus will not be the first in recent times.
Filming shut down for ‘Mission Impossible 7’ back in June after a crew member tested positive for the novel virus.
