Casualty to go off-air for an 'extended break' from the BBC over the pandemic

CASUALTY is to go off-air for an "extended break' from the BBC over the coronavirus pandemic.

Casualty confirmed filming has been suspended until next month and the BBC One drama's last episode will be broadcast this Saturday (August 22).

Casualty's final episode for some time will see Max McGerry making an appearance, and Jacob Masters will betray on/off girlfriend Connie Beauchamp.

The news follows Holby City being taken off air this week in a huge scheduling shake-up.

The medical drama will not air at its usual time of 8pm tonight and won't return to BBC screens until later this year

Instead, a repeat of Babs, the biopic of Barbara Windsor will run in Holby City’s place from 8.30pm.

The hit medical drama ended with some whopping cliffhangers on August 11.

When will Holby City be back on BBC One?

BBC bosses are yet to confirm exactly when Holby City will be returning to our screens after filming was halted in March.

Holby City recommenced filming on July 27, more than four months after lockdown forced a pause in production. 

With production back up and running, the team have been filming a special comeback episode which will show the hospital gripped by the coronavirus pandemic.

The special will follow the efforts of Holby City’s CEO Max as she tries to guarantee the safety of the staff, while ensuring that the patients are getting the treatment they need.
