A new report indicates that Grant Gustin’s The Flash is hoping to restart production in late August.
COVID-19 continues to impact the entertainment business, particularly for those productions who are nested in the United States, where cases grow everyday. However, some Vancouver-based productions are getting the go-ahead to begin filming very soon. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. TV is looking at a late August date to get some of their Vancouver-based productions filming again. These include Grant Gustin’s The Flash, Riverdale, and Superman and Lois.
The filming situation is tentative but things seem to be moving ahead well. Actors on productions like The Flash and Riverdale received a letter this week telling them their services will be required for the 2020-2021 season starting August, fulfilling the 30-day notice required. The planned start dates for shows like Grant Gustin’s The Flash or Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman and Lois are between August 20 to 27. These dates reflect the two week isolation period that British Columbia is requiring for new entries into the province. The proposed dates line up with the report from last month that suggested Warner Bros. was looking for a Fall start.
Numerous Warner Bros. TV productions were cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Grant Gustin’s The Flash prematurely ended its sixth season with its 19th episode. The same situation extended towards other series such as Batwoman. Cases in British Columbia – the province that Vancouver is in – continue to decline, which makes it the perfect safe haven for Hollywood to begin filming in.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Flash season seven:
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).
With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)…Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton.
