AceShowbiz – The producers of royal drama “The Crown” are hoping to complete work on the show’s fourth season before the coronavirus pandemic shuts the set down.
Several major productions currently filming in England, such as “The Batman“, “Fantastic Beasts 3“, “The Witcher“, and the new Apple TV series “Suspicion“, have been suspended in recent days, but the Netflix drama is forging ahead with stars like Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies and Helena Bonham Carter still on set, according to reports.
The series is in its final week of filming the upcoming fourth season.
“The Crown” is also one of the only Netflix projects still shooting after bosses at the streaming service announced they had postponed filming on all productions in the U.S. and Canada.
The decision to press on with “The Crown” comes as U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson releases a statement to the public, urging everyone to stay at home and avoid all gatherings.
