Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is once again back on track, as promised by HBO after the recent positive coronavirus case. The production was hit with a jolt on Monday when a crew and a cast member tested positive for the contagious virus. According to Deadline, the UK shoot was paused for two days after a positive case in zone A was reported, which includes cast and crew. Now Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that filming on HBO’s upcoming fantasy series House of the Dragon resumed on Wednesday as expected after a brief production shutdown.

The production member and the actor have been isolated and close contacts are required to quarantine. Production began according to the schedule on Wednesday. It is not known yet as to who were the ones who were tested positive for the virus.

Leaked pictures from all over the internet hinted HBO is taking great strides in this direction, and they are leaving no stones unturned to make this show a great hit.

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing every other day.

The TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is one of DC’s most highly anticipated projects. The Netflix series garnered quite some attention, as it includes an ensemble of highly talented casts, including Game of Thrones alums. Gwendoline Christie, who played Brienne of Tarth in the fantasy series, will play a gender-swapped version of Lucifer in the show. And she is highly excited about it. Netflix has finally released a first look at Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie on a new poster of the drama series The Sandman.

Based on the popular comic book series, the series is described as a “rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.” The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he tries to fix all the cosmic and human mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon was progressing with its filming with a swift pace so far, until recently. The production has come to a sudden halt as one of the important crew members has tested positive for COVID-19 on the last day of shoot in Caceres, forcing the team to extend their stay.

According to the local newspaper Hoy, one of the main members of the recording team, who was responsible for filming a lot of crucial scenes, contracted the virus and was immediately quarantined.

House of The Dragon has faced similar situations before in the past, when the shoot had to be postponed for a few days due to a positive covid case. Hopefully, they will recover from the jolt soon, and continue with their shoot.

This might cause some delay in the filming of the Game of Thrones prequel in Monsanto, where the shooting is supposed to take place from 26th October.
