During this hiatus we want to be mindful of the concerns of the crew and are allowing them to return home until production starts. We will continue to monitor this situation, and work alongside health and government officials as it evolves.”

Mission: Impossible 7 is due for release on July 23, 2021 whilst Mission: Impossible 8is set to follow on August 5, 2022.
