Bridgerton Season 2 Reportedly Shut Down Production Due to Positive COVID-19 Tests

It’s going to be driven by “peak thirst.” When asked by Vanity Fair if “peak thirst” is the mantra for season two, Van Dusen said, “Absolutely. We’re inspired by really delicious romance novels, and the sensuality [and] sexuality was always something that we were excited to be able to lean into on the show.” I’m already sweating. 

There will be Meghan Markle and Prince Harry parallels. Specifically, as it pertains to Daphne and Simon’s new baby. “I really can’t say too much, nor would you expect me to, but I guess what we do know absolutely is that they’re married now. It’s a new married life and they have the baby, so there are all the vagaries of what that is like for young people with a new baby,” Adjoa Andoh—who plays Lady Danbury—revealed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I mean, Harry and Meghan, what’s it like when you have a new baby? How does it affect you when [you are] a young couple with a new baby?”

That being said, Regé-Jean Page is not returning. Absolutely devastating. In June, Dynevor gave a bit more insight into what the series will look like without its broody duke. “It’s definitely different,” the Netflix star told The Wrap in an interview published on June 2. “And I’ve said it before, but I think the fans who have read the books and know the books are aware that every season will focus on a different sibling’s journey. And it might be a little bit more of a—not shock, but like a surprise for the fans that love Daphne and Simon’s story so much. But I think that’s honestly the joy of the show in the long-term, getting to see these different love stories play out.”

“I think he’ll definitely be referred to a lot. I think we’ll see the baby,” Dynevor continued. “And we’ll just focus more on her relationship with the Bridgerton family.”


We’ll finally meet the Bridgertons’ father! On May 28, news broke that the series had cast Rupert Evans (Charmed, The Man in the High Castle) as Edmund, father of the eight Bridgerton siblings. Edmund, wife of Violet, was already dead at the beginning of season one, so we’ll probably see Evans in flashbacks or dream sequences. (The series doesn’t seem to be headed in a ghostly direction, but hey, we’ll see.)

Netflix calls the character “a loving and devoted husband, whose true love match with Violet Bridgerton gave them eight perfect children. He’s also an endlessly patient and kind father, who takes special pride in guiding his eldest son Anthony through life.” Can’t wait to meet him!

Filming has begun—and your first look at Kate is here! On May 1, People shared a new photo from the set of season two that features our new main couple, Anthony and Kate.

Production reportedly shut down due to positive COVID-19 tests. But it was only temporary! According to Us Weekly, filming paused for 24 hours after crew members tested positive for the coronavirus. “Production briefly paused due to a very small number of positive covid cases,” a source reveals. “All COVID-19 health and safety protocols were followed and those impacted have been isolated. No cast [members were] affected.” Production reportedly started back up on July 16.
