New FOX series Terra Nova will return to Queensland to resume filming.
Screen Queensland CEO Maureen Barron today welcomed the return of the cast and crew of the dinosaur series, to re-commence filming on the Gold Coast on May 25th.
“Executive produced by Steven Spielberg and Peter Chernin, Terra Nova is an ambitious big-budget television series that Queensland and international audiences are impatient to see. We are thrilled to welcome back the production to complete filming of season one,” she said.
“Terra Nova is very important to the Queensland production community at a time when there has been a drop in international production throughout Australia due to currency fluctuations and increased competition from international locations. It is the only international production currently in production in Australia.”
With the high value of the Australian dollar, there were some concerns the series may not return. Its debut season was also hampered by wet weather.
Filming of the first series began in November 2010 in south east Queensland, with locations in Brisbane’s CBD, Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast, and the Gold Coast’s hinterland including the small town of Bonogin.
It will air in Australia on TEN.
