    Of course, we're already anticipating what a second season of Netflix's latest hit would look like if it ends up getting renewed — but Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor recently expressed some reservations about how, exactly, they'll go about filming it at all.

    In an interview with Deadline, Phoebe expressed uncertainty about filming a second season of Bridgerton during the COVID-19 pandemic: “I can’t imagine how it would be possible to film under these circumstances," she admitted.

    "There are so many extras and so many crew members, and it’s a very intimate show," she continued. "It just baffles me how we would film it under COVID rules unless there was a vaccine beforehand.”

    Even though COVID-19 vaccines have started being distributed, we still don't know if you can spread the disease even if you've been vaccinated — so wearing a mask and social distancing might still be necessary in the future.

    Bridgerton's first season wrapped last year before the pandemic really kicked into high gear, but Phoebe's worked on set since — specifically, for TV Land's dramedy Younger — and she shared her experience working on that show to illuminate the struggles Bridgerton's cast and crew would face.

    “When I was filming, it was masks on in rehearsals," she explained. "So you don’t take them off until you say action. Or at least we didn’t. It was a really strange experience. I didn’t see my character’s new boyfriend’s face until we were filming a scene together, which was really bizarre.”

    Regardless, Phoebe says she's "excited to find out" what the show's writers have in store for a possible second season of Bridgerton — and you know what? So are we.
