Normality is finally resuming after a long few months of staying indoors. With millions of us protecting ourselves from the virus, it seems it is now safer to leave our homes. While Netflix has been our saving grace, there were many worries that halted production could lead to a lack of content in the future. But more studios have now been given the go-ahead to reopen and begin filming both series and films…

Film and television projects have been given the green light to resume according to recent reports. Studios across the UK, in particular, have been told that filming can begin again. The second season of The Witcher was looking to be released later this year. But it may look like more episodes will now be coming in 2021. With that being said, the Netflix Original is now back in action, with cameras rolling very soon.

So many movie and tv productions are finally back filming!

It’s been a tough time for the TV and movie industry of late. Streaming services seemed to be the only platform benefitting from people staying at home. It has been difficult, but in a recent government statement, studios have now been allowed to reopen as it is safer. There are tons of projects that are now restarting filming. Highly anticipated DC Comics The Batman will now resume, with Robert Pattinson playing the lead role. And that’s not the only major film to now be back in action…

Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid will now restart filming, with the latest installment in the franchise Fantastic Beasts also underway. Netflix lovers will also be glad to now that Peaky Blinders is back up and running. A recent statement announced that productions have been forced to open as they rely on the UK summer weather conditions. As studios such as Elstree, Twickenham, and Maidstone are reopening their sites, it made sense for productions to continue as they were doing go before the pandemic. We’re excited to see that some amazing productions will be heading our way in the near future…

The Witcher has become a fan-favorite…

Fantasy series The Witcher was actually one of the first to announce that production was halted after actor Kristofer Hivju tested positive for COVID-19 on March 16th. It wasn’t long until other production companies shut their sites to fit safety regulations. While many of us hoped a new series would be heading to Netflix at the end of this year, the second season is eyeing up a 2021 release. The Witcher is the most popular show on Netflix to date. The streaming service announced that 76 million households watched the first season! We’re so happy that life is finally getting back to normal!
