Great news has come out about Home and Away’s production!
Filming is due to commence on Home and Away on May 25 Back to the Bay reports. After two months off as a precaution to the current COVID-19 crisis, the beloved series will turn to shoot studio scenes only. Anything filmed at the beach is still suspended until further notice.
This is great news since rival soap opera, Neighbours has already resumed filming with restrictions in place to ensure that any form of contact is limited.
Back to the Bay revealed in their aforementioned article that scripts have been reworked to ensure there is limited contact. Also, the cast have taken to doing rehearsals via Zoom as they wait to commence filming. It should also be noted that production will be closely monitored with temperatures being taken upon arrival on set.
Before anyone asks, we’re not at risk of running out of episodes as the show films six months in advance so with production about to commence again, we should see anything filmed from May 25 either late this year or early in the new year. We know that everything with episodes is fine as Channel 7 is back to showing five episodes a week with a triple episode on Thursday. UK viewers are now back to five episodes a week as well.
We could not be more thrilled to see that things are finally going back to sense of normalcy. If there is any changes, we will be sure to keep you all informed. We cannot wait to see what these altered precautions bring to the screen.
For now though, we can just sit back and enjoy the show as it returns to normal. Bring on the drama is all we can say! Also, bring back some old favourites for a visit! We’re talk about that more in another post!
