The TV series filming was put on hold after the Czech government placed a ban on movie screenings, elementary and high school classes, sports matches, and cultural events. The Prague Film Festival has also been canceled.
Falcon and Winter Soldier began filming in Prague last week, but the cast and crew have now been recalled to Atlanta as the crack down on coronavirus infections continues grow across Europe.
This marks it as the second time the series has been postponed. In January, the show was due to shoot in Puerto Rico but was forced to postpone shooting after the commonwealth was hit by a series of powerful earthquakes.

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are expected to return to their roles from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the series, with Daniel Brühl, Emily VanCamp, and Wyatt Russell also starring. The series will consist of six episodes and is due to be released on Disney Plus in August as a limited series.
Disney is also currently working on several other limited series centered on MCU characters such as “Ms. Marvel,” “Hawkeye,” “Loki,” “She-Hulk,” “Moon Knight,” and “WandaVision”, all which are expected to be released on Disney Plus soon.
