Holby City returns to BBC1 on 2 June after break for coronavirus pandemic – but cast still haven't returned to filming

HOLBY City will return to BBC One on June 2 after a break because of the coronavirus pandemic – but the cast still haven't returned to filming.

The hospital drama has been off air since April and fans have been desperate to know when it will return to their screens.

It was initially suggested the show would be off air for three months, after a BBC spokesperson said the extended break was to ensure an even spread of continuing drama across the summer.

But newly released TV schedules have revealed Holby will be back on TV on Tuesday, June 2.

The show will then air weekly after that date, although the cast haven't returned to set to film new episodes just yet.

Holby was just one of many BBC shows which had to halt production back in March because of the coronavirus pandemic, with EastEnders, Casualty and Doctors also affected.

Shows on other channels – such as Coronation Street on ITV and Hollyoaks on Channel 4 – were also affected, but new Government advice has meant some TV shows will resume filming in the coming weeks.

However,  the BBC is yet to confirm when Holby City and Casualty casts will return for filming.

Fans will be desperate to see what happens in the aftermath of Zav Duval's death.

Zav – played by Marcus Griffiths – was killed off in the last episode to air in April, just as he had uncovered Cameron's sinister secret.

Zav had spent weeks trying to expose Cameron and prove he had murdered Evan Crowhurst before being killed in a tragic road accident.

Discussing how he felt about the exit, Marcus told Digital Spy:  "You don't really have a choice – they are trying to make great TV at the end of the day.

"I think if you are going to go, you want to go out with something memorable that people are going to remember. As an actor, personally, I found it brilliant."

Holby City returns on Tuesday, June 2 at 8pm on BBC One.
