While the coronavirus COVID-19 seems to be on a new surge in the United States, other countries have been successful in tamping down the spread. This includes British Columbia which, of course, is where you will find Vancouver, home to production to CW shows Supernatural, Riverdale, The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, and now Superman and Lois.
It now appears as though Warner Bros. TV feels comfortable enough to resume production on a few of their biggest series next month.
According to Deadline, WBTV has set dates between August 20 to August 27 to resume production on The Flash, Riverdale and their latest DC TV series Superman & Lois.
The dates include a two-week self-isolation period for actors required by British Columbia. Production would then begin after the end of the quarantine period. The cast of each series have already been notified of their reporting dates.
As for Supernatural, its cast started returning to the city earlier this month and are on schedule to resume filming the final three episodes of its fifteenth and final season in early-to-mid August.
No word on Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman, but considering they are all being held until midseason 2021, the network may have a little more time before coming to a decision.
Black Lightning and Stargirl are currently TBD as both productions are based in Atlanta.
