As Hollywood is cautiously charting a path back to TV production, Vancouver may help lead the way.
A number of shows filming up north have set tentative July-August production start dates, I hear. They include ABC’s The Good Doctor and A Million Little Things, the CW’s Supernatural, The Flash, Riverdale and Charmed, and Netflix’s Midnight Mass.
I hear The Good Doctor is eying a late-July Season 4 production start (I’ve heard July 20 and July 30 as possible dates). A Million Little Things is eying an Aug. 10-Aug. 24 Season 3 start. Supernatural has been aiming for an end-of-July start to finish its final season before star Jared Padalecki segues to production on his new CW series, Walker.
The Good Doctor, AMLT and Supernatural are all on their networks’ fall schedules, with bigger urgency for them to get going though no one is rushing a return to production before safety protocols are agreed upon with the unions and implemented.
