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.
The news dealt a minor blow to the expectations of the fans who were expecting the show to arrive early in 2022. The progress on the Game of Thrones prequel was going on smoothly until now, and was progressing really quick. 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. Hopefully, they’ll be able to make the dragons fly again and get the production up to speed in no time.
We wish a speedy recovery to the cast and the crew and hopefully, they’ll be back on track and make up for the lost time. Send your good wishes in the comments below!
