The COVID pandemic has impacted so much in our society and none more so that the television and film industry. And while things are slowly coming back around, it still is making it a slow go for some productions. That would include Season 3 of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy.
Production started for the show in February but due to COVID precautions, the work has been slower than might it might normally be. Recently, in an interview with Collider, one of the stars of the show, Tom Hopper explained that the production has a “long way to go” before wrapping.
Well, the COVID protocols mean that we have shorter days, which means that the actual length of the shoot is going to be a lot longer. But yeah, we’re really near the beginning. We’re not that far into it at the moment, so we’ve got a long way to go, but it’s good. The great thing is the material, the work is amazing, so every day on set is, like I say, a joy and so much fun.
Hopper also talked about the scripts for the show and said they had not received all 10 shows yet. However when asked, he felt like the extra time given had been worth it.
We’ve not got all 10, but we’ve had a fair chunk and yeah, I think that you’re right. I think it did allow them to have a bit of extra time on, because I think we got commissioned in the middle of all this stuff. So the writers I guess got more of a head start. But now it’s only allowed them to really refine them, so the ones we’re getting now are really special.
