The cameras are rolling again on Bridgerton season two.

Filming for the second season resumed on Tuesday after it was shut down indefinitely in July after two positive coronavirus cases on set, reports Variety.

"We are back under way. We had to delay because of COVID, but we're back in it. Right now, I'm in post, editing our first couple episodes, which are looking great," showrunner Chris Van Dusen told the publication.

Bridgerton was one of several high-profile series filming in England that shut down during a surge of infection cases in the country.

Based on the novels by Julia Quinn, the series follows the Bridgerton siblings. Season 2 of the hit show will focus on Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey). Chris teased to Variety that they will explore concepts of duty and honour.

"We pick up Anthony after we've seen what he's been through with his mistress. He's thinking, 'Was that love?' Some would call it that; others would not. We're exploring those concepts of duty and honour once again."
