The surge in infections for the Delta variant in the United Kingdom could not fail to also knock on the door of Bridgerton, victim of a mini-outbreak that led Netflix to close the set and put the cast and crew in solitary confinement until a later date. During the filming of the second season that we will see – barring unforeseen events – on the platform between the end of this year and the beginning of the next, in fact, a case of positivity was found on the day of July 15, and yet another the day after: which led Netflix and Shondaland to stop working without giving information on who contracted the virus.
The first to break the news of the mini-outbreak was Deadline Hollywood, who spoke of an individual still positive and in isolation. To understand how the pace of filming will evolve it will be necessary to wait but, in the meantime, Bridgerton enjoying its freshest and, in some ways, unexpected success: at the Emmy Awards 2021 he obtained the beauty of 12 nominations, and it is clear that the organizational machine has all the interest in the world to restart as soon as possible and safely. The production of the second season began last March in England: the protocol on the set has always been very strict, and it is also for this reason that there is so much perplexity about how he managed to insinuate himself at the court of the series.
To be central in this second season of Bridgerton Sara Lord Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), Daphne’s brother who will find love (spoiler!) in Kate, played by Simone Ashley. Also joining her in the cast will be fresh and young faces like Charithra Chandran (Edwina, her half-sister), Rupert Young (Jack, an English gentleman) and Calam Lynch (Theo, a painter’s assistant), although the absence of Regé-Jean Page continues to weigh heavily on the curiosity effect around Bridgerton 2, in the meantime confirmed for another two seasons for the happiness of showrunner Chris Van Dausen, who in his heart hoped that the project would continue to follow all the novels of the romantic saga created by the pen of Julia Quinn.
