Season 2 has been suspended due to COVID-19
Remember that like other TV series, Bridgeton is currently filming Season 2 under strict safety and prevention regulations for the Coronavirus. And on Friday, the news learned that filming had been paralyzed on Thursday for 24 hours.
On Saturday, July 17, filming for the second season of Bridgerton is back in the news. According to specialist director Deadline, filming of the Netflix period drama has been halted for the second time in a week after another positive test for Covid hit the popular Regency-era drama.

The unfortunate thing is that Netflix has halted production in Bridgerton once again, but this time for an indefinite period of time as Shondaland and producers set a schedule for a safe return amid the delta variant of the coronavirus spreading across the UK.
The truth is that if this situation continues, the production of the second season is in jeopardy, leading to a possible delay in the premiere, which is expected to be by the end of 2021.
