On February 13th 2020, Collider announced that both Jake Johnson and Omar Sy would be returning as their characters from Jurassic World; Lowery Cruthers and Barry. Later on August 12th, Johnson revealed in an interview with Collider that delays in filming had put his participation in question and that they were 'trying to work it out'. In June, shortly before production resumed, Collider revealed that Campbell Scott would be joining the film as Lewis Dodgson, who had previously been played by Cameron Thor.
Filming commenced on the February 24th, 2020, and was announced on Twitter by Trevorrow along with the film's title. Production was temporarily shutdown on March 13th, 2020 along with all of Universal's live action productions amid concerns of the Coronavirus COVID-19. Production later resumed again at Pinewood Studios on July 6th following a two week pre-production period and the implementation of 5 million dollars worth safety procedures including the commission of a private medical facility called Your Doctor to manage the entire production’s medical needs. On August 4th, 2020, Sam Neill tweeted a picture from his dressing room of Alan Grant's Hat. The next day Neill also revealed a look at both his and Laura Dern's cast chairs on location. On August 7th, 2020, Colin Trevorrow distributed an image from the set hinting at a return to Site B on Isla Sorna. The New York Times published new images from the set on August 13th in an article focusing on the new safety procedures that had been put in place. Amongst these images were fresh looks at Chris Pratt and DeWanda Wise, and a group of cage animatronic Compsognathus. On August 19th Deadline announced that plans to shoot in Malta were being scaled back after a COVID-19 spike in the country. In an interview with the French website Premiere, Colin Trevorrow assured that production was on schedule despite the delays. On October 7th, 2020, Colin Trevorrow tweeted that production was taking a two week hiatus following several false-positive COVID-19 tests on set, along with an image of an animatronic Lystrosaurus. Trevorrow announced that filming had resumed on October 23, 2020 with a picture of Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum in front of the Richard Attenborough stage at Pinewood. Production wrapped on November 7th, 2020 as confirmed by Trevorrow with an image of himself alongside cast members Sam Neill, Dewanda Wise and Mamoudou Athie.
