Prague’s Barrandov Studios to Host Filming of American Series ‘Blade Runner 2099

The planned U.S. television series Blade Runner 2099, produced by Amazon, which will follow the famous films Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049, will be filmed in the Czech Republic, and will be one of the most demanding projects ever produced in the country, said Pavlina Zipkova, head of the Czech Film Commission.

The filming will include large constructions in most film studios. Barrandov Studio director Petr Tichy said the makers of Blade Runner 2099 may spend up to CZK 1 billion in the Czech Republic. Tichy said the contracts have been signed, but it is still too early to speak of the concrete conditions and the exact investment.

The first season of the series is to be filmed in Barrandov Studios in Prague by November.
