Filming for the second season of Bridgerton has come to a halt after a second positive coronavirus test on set.

Deadline reports that production of the hit Netflix show was halted for 24 hours on Thursday after a crew member tested positive. On Friday, production resumed but was stopped after another positive test.

A representative for the streaming service confirmed to the publication that the production had been paused indefinitely until the producers can create a timeline for filming to resume.

The upcoming season - which will centre on Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) - is being filmed in the UK, which is experiencing a rise in coronavirus infections due to the Delta variant.

Last week the show picked up 12 nominations at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards including Best Actor in a Drama and Best Drama Series.
