While the whole world has stopped because of the Co-vid19, so have a lot of expensive projects.
The Guardian reports that some among the biggest such “have been given the go-ahead to restart filming after the UK government and health bodies signed off on new coronavirus safety rules“.
UK’s film and high-end television industry is worth £3.6bn and could rise now that Hollywood monsters as Matt Reeves-directed ‘The Batman’ – starring Robert Pattinson, the third ‘Fantastic Beasts’- film, set in the Harry Potter- universe, and Netflix’s second season of epic-fantasy series ‘The Witcher’ with Henry Cavill’s in the main role – “is understood to be keen to resume production as soon as is safely possible“.
Two of the most popular shows on British television are ‘Line of Duty’ and ‘Peaky Blinders’. Back in mid-March those were the first UK productions to suspend filming.
There’s even a very likely time-frame till the production may resume as the article states that: “This is a green light that signals that the UK is open for business again for film and high-end TV production,” said an industry source. “Many productions have to get up and running again in the next two months or they won’t get made this year as they rely on summer weather and conditions.”
I’m sure we’ll see some release dates pushed back but it’s good to see things are beginning to recover and soon to return to normal.
The series aired between 2005 to 2008 with 66 episodes and such a captivating finale that many claim it’s one of the best ever.

But when the world needs him most, he vanishes. A hundred years later Katara and Sokka discover the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang. Together they must help Aang master the elements and save the world.
‘The Letter to the King’ is a Netflix adaptation based on the Dutch fantasy classic by Tonke Dragt (first published 1962).
In this sweeping fantasy series, a teenage knight-in-training (Amir Wilson) receives a secret letter on which the fate of the kingdom depends. He embarks on an epic quest to deliver it to the king and stop the world from being plunged into darkness.
I am a HUGE fantasy fan and based by its looks, this show may fill some needs. Some scenes are epic. I’ve seen some BUZZ around the Net and overall the consensus is that people should look forward to this.
The Letter for the King premieres March 20, only on Netflix.
‘Altered Carbon’ debuted in February 2018 and proved itself to become a success for the streaming platform.
The plot centered around a future where consciousness can be digitally stored and transported to another body. Joel Kinnaman played as Takeshi Kovacs, a prisoner returned to life for the purpose to solve a murder and regain his freedom.
‘Avengers’ star – Anthony Mackie (photo above) – takes over the role for the next season, which consists of eight episodes, just like the first season did.
It looks fit for a good family time and I would define it as “supernatural”. Another Netflix original that is supposed to become a hit and as a subscriber, I am looking forward to this. Keep ’em coming!

The show is based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski and stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.
There’s also a game series based on the same works and the last title (until now, at least) is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – an open world RPG with plenty to explore. PC, Xbox One and PS4 got it. Even a Switch version was released not long ago: October last year.
What has now happened, is that this game has broken its record, as the earlier concurrent player peak was 92,268, set shortly after the game’s launch (2015) on Steam alone. According to the source below, these numbers have seen a boost and just today, a new record was set: 101,133 simultaneous players.
I’m intrigued by the concept. I’ll binge watch it.
