Holby City to go off air again for another extended break

Production resumed on the TV series last week

Holby City will go off air again for another extended break after next week’s episode (Tuesday, August 11).

Back in March, production was suspended on the BBC medical drama due to the coronavirus pandemic. In order to ration out episodes, the show went off air back in April before returning on June 2.

Although filming resumed on the show last week, Holby City will be taking another extended break after August 11.

Although it hasn’t been revealed when the show will be returning, with production back on track, we can assume it won’t be very long.

Next week, viewers will see what happens next with Ric and Guy.

As Ric went under for his life-or-death operation, surgeon Max was called away for an emergency. The on-call surgeon was revealed to be Ric’s nemesis Guy. Will he help him?

The episode will see hospital CEO Max McGerry struggle to stay in control, as well as keep her staff safe, as the coronavirus takes hold.

But it looks like there will also be trouble between her and Ric as they go head to head as a result of recent events. It becomes clear that he’s lost his trust in her.

Holby City return to filming

Speaking about the return to filming, Head of Continuing Drama at BBC, Kate Oates, said: “It’s with great pleasure that we open the doors at Elstree to welcome back the exceptional cast and crew of Holby City.
