Last I heard was that S3 was ordered by Netflix to air in 2021 but, with the pandemic shutting down a lot of productions, I haven't seen any follow-up talk about whether production has actually started or if it's been delayed.
I wonder if there has been a shift in how TV episodes are shot?
Back in the 'day', each week, a new episode was shot.
I wonder if studios are shooting multiple episodes at once.
Its a logical move. All the key personnel are at the studio, have been screened for covid and working within established protocols.
To go thru the clearing process each week would eat into their productivity.
I wonder if we will see snafus corresponding to this change.
Elements from one episode leaking into another?
Like in one episode, a blaster burns a wall. Then a scene from an earlier episode is shot at the same location and angle and you can see scorch marks near that wall. Since the blaster hit was in a later episode, why would there be scorch marks if it hasn't happened yet.
Another example might be bruise and cut makeup.
These snafus will mess with the continuity of the episodes.
I've seen it before in movies but I believe it could become more commonplace in TV shows.
I remember when Lost In Space first hit the web. One day, no episodes then bam! the whole season available.
I wonder if this will become the norm?
I noticed three episodes of Star Trek: Discovery hit the web in one day.
Its entirely possible the studio shoots three episodes at a time.
I wonder if actor fatigue will play a part in the quality of episodes?
