James Corden’s The Late Late Show has become one of the first to return to remote filming as coronavirus numbers surge in Los Angeles.
The celebrity chat show will be shot from host Corden’s garage until further notice, with the team not taking any risks as Hollywood looks under threat of another lockdown.
Corden and the team worked remotely before, having to come up with a solution to remain on the air after the first lockdown in March last year.
Now the beginning of January the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health urged the film and TV industry to pause production again.
But announcing the move on Twitter yesterday, the show’s reps stated: ‘No, you’re not experiencing deja vu.
‘With Los Angeles back on lockdown, we’re once again taping the #LateLateShow in @JKCorden’s garage until it’s safe to return to our studio.’
LA County is currently seeing a huge surge in Covid cases, with California State accounting for almost 10% of the entire US’s numbers.
According to New York Times, a further 35,000 positive cases were confirmed on Monday.
The announcement comes after it was reported that Corden is considering moving from the US back to the UK.

James and his wife Julia moved to the States in 2012, and have raised their three children, Max, nine, Carey, six, and Charlotte, three, there.
‘I have a couple of years to go on this contract,’ James told The Sun’s Bizarre column. ‘Ending the show will always be a bigger family decision than a professional one.
‘It will be about people at home who we miss very, very much, who we are homesick for. I also feel like my wife and I have three young children, and they are three young grandchildren that we’ve taken away from people.’
He added to the publication: ‘This probably feels particularly magnified now during the pandemic, but I have an overwhelming feeling that our family has walked to the beat of my drum for a very long time.’
The Late Late Show airs on CBS in the US and Sky Comedy/NOW TV in the UK.
