The After franchise is officially back in production. The series is moving forward at a rapid pace in an effort to finish telling the story in a timely manner, and that means moving forward despite COVID-19 and all the complications it has caused for production companies. In an official announcement on the series’ Instagram, it was announced that they are in the process of simultaneously shooting the third and fourth installments of the series in Eastern Europe where the COVID case numbers are still fairly low.
As this decision means immediate filming, not all of the entire original cast is available for shooting, and four of the film’s roles have been recast. True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer is replacing Charlie Weber as Christian Vance, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Chance Perdomo is taking over Shane Paul McGhie as Landon, Arielle Kebbel from John Tucker Must Die is replacing Candice King as Kimberly Vance, and Mighty Aphrodite‘s Mira Sorvino is replacing Selma Blair as Carol Young. They have also announced that Carter Jenkins will be joining the cast as Robert.
Although this announcement did not come with any official release date information, the fact that filming is already in progress suggests that the next installment could be coming as early as 2021. Keep an eye on this space for more updates as they become available.
