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

“Bridgerton” was a huge hit for Netflix upon its Christmas Day release in 2020, reaching a record 82 million households in just one month. The series, which blasted stars Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page into the spotlight, was nominated for 12 Emmy Awards — including Best Actor in A Drama and Best Drama.

Sadly, fans of the series will not be seeing much of Best Actor nominee Page in the second season.

The actor, who played Regency-era bad boy, the Duke of Hastings, revealed he would not be returning for the show’s new season. Though Page claimed his departure from the show was amicable, Page Six exclusively learned that “creative differences” were the real reason behind the split.
