Netflix’s sizzling hit series “Bridgerton” has been forced to stop production for the second time this week due to a positive COVID-19 test, according to the deadline. The series first paused filming for 24 hours on its UK set on Thursday after a crew member tested positive, then resumed on Friday.

On Saturday, production was suspended indefinitely following a second positive test result. Netflix has not disclosed who tested positive, whether it was a member of the cast or the crew.

According to Deadline’s report, Netflix has strict testing protocols on set.
