EastEnders will air 20 minute episodes four nights a week when the soap returns later this year.
The BBC soap is set to go off air next week as the soap is running out of new episodes.Filming was suspended due to the coronavirus lockdown. But the cast and crew will resume filming at the end of the month.
As well as production stopping, episodes were reduced from four a week down to two.
Jon Sen speaks about shorter EastEnders episodes
Executive producer Jon Sen said: "Resuming production is incredibly exciting and challenging in equal measure.
"Since we postponed filming, we've been working non-stop trialling techniques, filming methods and new ways of working so that we can return to screens four times a week - as EastEnders should be.
"Filming will inevitably be a more complex process now, so creating 20 minute episodes will enable us to ensure that when we return, EastEnders will still be the show the audience know and love."
Due to BBC One not having adverts, the programme typically airs longer episodes than other soaps.
