After a six-month delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the second season of Tribal will begin production in Calgary next week.

Cameras are set to roll Nov. 17 for the 10-episode season that is scheduled to air in the fall of 2021 on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, says creator, showrunner and director Ron E. Scott.

“We have protocols that are industry standard and above and we are all adhering to them and happy to do it,” Scott says, in an interview with Postmedia earlier this week.

APTN ordered a second season before the first premiered back in February 2020. Production was supposed to start in May but was delayed not only by the pandemic but also by insurance concerns.

In late September, the federal government announced its “Short-Term Compensation Fund” for Canadian audiovisual productions. As much as $50 million will be available to the industry, administered by Telefilm Canada and the Canada Media Fund, to compensate independent production companies if there is an interruption or shutdown due to confirmed COVID-19 cases.
