- New on Netflix: What to watch this week
Deadline revealed the news of the Regency-era drama had come to a stop and Netflix declined to comment on whether it was a cast or crew member who caught the virus.
What we do know is the individual is now isolating and both Netflix and Shondaland producers are working on when they will be able to safely return to filming.
The giant streaming platform test their cast and crew regularly and will need to be even more vigilant.
The coronavirus continues to spread rapidly as nearly 52,000 people tested positive for covid-19 on Friday.
Fans are keen to see a new series of Bridgerton after a wildly successful first installment, which was watched by a record 82 million households worldwide.
Earlier this year Daphne Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor, 26, explained how hard it was to combat Covid while making the drama.
She said: “There are so many extras and so many crew members, and it’s a very intimate show.”
The second series was being made at various locations, but this week was at Wrotham Hall, an 18th-century pile in Hertfordshire.
Filming was being split between the grand house and studios in Uxbridge in West London.
Filming of the fifth series of royal drama The Crown, starring Imelda Staunton, 65, as the Queen and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, 30, is due to start this week.
The last series of the show saw it lead the Emmy award nominations this week, with 24 nods including best actor, best actress and best drama.
