We had just published the article about Bridgerton’s shutdown because of COVID. It seems Netflix’s Matilda has joined the ranks among it. As we told you earlier, Bridgerton, or its production got halted because one of the members either in the cast or the crew was declared positive. Now, it was not revealed who got COVID, but it was later confirmed that the person was isolating themselves.
It seems a somewhat similar fate has befallen the Matilda. They have had to partially shut down the production of the series due to the outbreak. This has made it the second Netflix series in the UK to be shutdown because of the virus. It has been said the new Delta variant of the virus has been spreading at a faster rate, which is responsible for more people getting infected. Moreover, it has also been revealed that it may cause another wide outbreak. But, let us keep our focus on the show for the time being.
Matilda Shooting: First Unit down
It has been revealed that the first unit which was working on the production of the series has halted the same. Though, it was further clarified that the second unit is still working on the show. The team has been asked whether the first unit will start working. To this, they have replied that there has to be a hiatus of at least 10 days before options for opening can be explored.
It has also been revealed that the reason for the number of cases has been the strict testing guidelines of Netflix. They have been testing every member each day. This is also because the country has been experiencing a surge of COVID. As much as 50,000 positive tests are being unearthed each day. We hope that the cast members get better and production can start.
