Lioness Filming Caused ‘Panic’ To Avatar Star

This is a very intense show. Saldaña told WWD, “And I’m happy. I’m so happy I did it.” She then revealed how much stress filming the Paramount+ series was.

I’m tired and every day I wake up with a lot of panic, but I do the work and I get there and every day I come home and I’m like, ‘no matter what happens, I did my best. I gave it my all and it feels good.’

When Will Taylor Sheridan’s New Series Premiere?

Lioness should premiere on Paramount+ sometime in 2023. However, they are not done filming this Taylor Sheridan series.

Firstly, there was a delay. According to Variety, that is because the original showrunner, Thomas Brady, was replaced due to creative differences. Sheridan became the showrunner for the series that he and Mystery 101 star Jill Wagner co-created.

However, because Sheridan is so busy with his Yellowstonerelated projects meant they had to delay the beginning of filming Lioness for nearly three months.

In addition, according to Jill Wagner’s Instagram Stories, the plan was to finish filming the series overseas at the beginning of the year until March. She has been posting from Palma, Spain. That means filming has begun.

But, Sheridan may need some cloning, as later in January, the popular show runnier is filming the remaining episodes of Yellowstone Season 5.
