The corona pandemic repeatedly leads to delays in the production of new films and series. Therefore, the dates that studios announce for the releases should always be treated with caution. But Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is doing very well under the circumstances.
TV studio has adjusted to the corona pandemic
“Our Covid protocol makes everything take longer, but you get through it and it’s strange to only get to know my cast on set,” said actor and Captain Pike actor Anson Mount. “But despite everything, it was one of the smoothest production starts I’ve ever seen on television.”
The Covid protocol in April meant that some of the guest stars who were supposed to appear in the first season of the series and also some members of the production had to be quarantined. But due to the protocols it was possible to continue shooting. Film and television studios have now worked out concepts that are tailored to the corona pandemic and that do not paralyze the entire production if someone tests positive for Covid-19.
“The last time I was home a full year was my junior year in high school. Everyone is happy to finally get back to work,” continued Mount. However, he misses the barbecue parties from before: “Normally I would have some barbecues now …”
The actor is pretty enthusiastic about what has been shot so far: “We’re very happy with the material and we’re all having a great time together.” We’ll see the first season of the Star Trek: Strange New Worlds series in the coming year.
