Casualty returns this week as ‘missing’ lockdown episode finally airs

The episode was meant to air back in May

Casualty will return to screens this week as the ‘missing’ episode from May is going to be aired this Saturday (September 26).

Currently Casualty is on an extended break. The BBC medical drama was forced to suspend production earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But back on May 2, fans were left confused as they sat down to watch Casualty, only for an announcement to explain the episode would not be shown as it was too close to home amid the pandemic.
