Prodigal Son Season 2: Michael Sheen provides a positive update on the series

Michael Sheen has been busy growing out his scruffy beard for his role as The Surgeon as he provides fans with a positive update on Prodigal Son Season 2.

Due to the Coronavirus, filming of both TV Shows and movies was postponed all across the world. Some filming has started up again, but not all. Michael Sheen has given fans an update about Prodigal Son Season 2 and it’s all good news.

While speaking to This Morning, Sheen revealed the cast and crew were hoping to start up filming again in October. The series was renewed shortly after the season finale, but like everyone else in the industry filming has not been able to start up again due to the global pandemic.

Sheen stated that the writers of the FOX crime drama were currently writing the new season and while they are hoping to begin filming in October nothing is certain right now.

There is of course plenty of uncertainty at the moment with what the future holds. Prodigal Son is filmed in New York City which has been a hot spot for the Coronavirus so things could easily change at a moments notice.

Safety is the teams’ number 1 concern. Sheen made this very clear during his interview with This Morning. So when filming gets underway it will be in a safe environment for everyone.

It will be interesting if filming begins in October when the second season will premiere. It has been slated for the FOX 2020-21 schedule, but with networks pushing back their schedules to the beginning of 2021 due to the pandemic, we could be looking at a January 2021 release date.
