In a meeting for investors today (21) the executive Ted Sarandos, the Head of Content at Netflix, stated that the original productions of the streaming service were not impacted by the coronavirus and that they will be launched on the scheduled dates.
With competitors postponing their films, and series due to the coronavirus, the platform executive ensured that Netflix’s 2020 projects continue with their production plans unchanged.
He claims “As Netflix acts a little differently from the industry, because we launched our series at once, we are a little ahead of the rest of the world, so our 2020 series of films and series have already been almost all filmed and are in pre-production phase.“
The executive gave the example of the series The Crown which has its fourth season scheduled to arrive in 2020, and the animated series Over the Moon.
Other projects were not mentioned.
On returning to recordings for new seasons, Sarandos said it would depend on the release of local governments. Netflix has recording hubs around the world, the most well-known in the US and Ireland.
