Bridgerton Spoilers: Season 2 Resumes Production After COVID-19 Shutdown
Bridgerton spoilers and updates tease that the production for season 2 has resumed after it was stopped due to the pandemic. Creator Chris Van Dusen shared the news in an interview with Variety.
Van Dusen, who created the period drama that was aired on Netflix, said that the cast and crew have returned for filming. They had to delay the production because of COVID-19.
“Right now I’m in post [production], editing our first couple episodes, which are looking great,” he said.
Back on July 17, Netflix announced that two members of the production had COVID-19 and that’s why the show’s producers had to work with the rest of the production to isolate themselves. They stopped filming two months after they began as the Delta variant of COVID-19 started to spread rapidly across the world.
Fans can expect a lot of surprises in the upcoming season, as per Van Dusen. “It’s everything people love so much about the first season but more,” he said.
