UK broadcaster Channel 5 is resuming Neighbours and Home & Away episodes 5 days a week from Monday May 11.
Each had been reduced to 2 days a week last month as production was halted on both.
Neighbours resumed full production earlier this week, winning global coverage for the progressive it has made to keep cast and crew safe. There will be no intimate scenes, cast and crew will be isolated into three distinct groups, and camera tricks will be used to make physically-distanced actors look more intimate.
Home and Away is yet to resume filming, but Seven has returned new episodes to air after a three week hiatus during news coverage.
Georgie Parker told TV Tonight, “We were working right up until about (four) and a half weeks ago and we were doing really well. We had adjusted filming in a very effective manner, adhering to as much spatial distancing as was possible.
“If they take the restrictions back a step or two, we will be able to resume filming. So we’re just waiting for that. We’re all guessing June, July.”
