Major UK Studios Begin Opening Their Doors Again After Going Dark During The Coronavirus Crisis
Exclusive: Some of the biggest studios in the UK, including two at the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, are beginning to open their doors again as UK film and television shoots take their first steps back into production.

Elstree Studios and Twickenham Studios have announced that production work has resumed on their sites, while Deadline understands that other spaces, including Arborfield/Longrcoss Studios and Maidstone Studios, should be ready for business again in the coming weeks.

Arborfield was among the first to be impacted by the production hiatus when Netflix shut down the fantasy drama The Witcher on the same day that actor Kristofer Hivju tested positive for coronavirus on March 16. Managing director Bob Terry said work is underway to reopen the site and sister studio Longcross, where the likes of Captain Phillips and Skyfall have been filmed. He is holding meetings over the next two weeks to finalize safety procedures.
