Details are not being released due to medical privacy issues, but we hear it was a series regular cast member who tested positive. Production was underway in Montreal on the season finale when the early shutdown occurred. Filming was halted Wednesday night, with four days left to finish the 18-episode season, we’re told. A source says production is expected to resume in January on an unspecified date.
The remake of the BBC comedy, which stars Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar, follows a struggling young couple, Samantha, played by McIver, and Jay, played by Ambudkar, whose dreams come true when they inherit a beautiful country house, only to find it’s both falling apart and inhabited by many of the deceased previous residents.
It comes from Joe Port & Joe Wiseman, Lionsgate Television, BBC Studios and CBS Studios.
Rebecca Wisocky, Devan Chandler Long Brandon Scott Jones, Danielle Pinnock, Asher Grodman, Richie Moriarty, Sheila Carrasco and Román Zaragoza co-star.
