It looks like Dylan O’Brien has recuperated from his injuries.

It was announced in April that production on Maze Runner: The Death Cure would be halted indefinitely, the result of the injuries franchise star Dylan O’Brien sustained during a serious on-set accident.

Details regarding the incident haven’t been crystal clear, but word is that O’Brien reportedly suffered fractures to either his cheekbone or orbital socket after falling off a set modeled to look like the rear end of a train.

The injuries were severe enough to not only stop production, but to keep production postponed much past the planned continuation date of May 9. Apart from O’Brien’s recovery, the delays are also attributed to the difficulties in rescheduling the various cast and crew members.

Well, all appears to be back in order.

Deadline is reporting that Maze Runner: The Death Cure will continue production in February 2017. Word is that the shoot will be taking place in an undisclosed new location, with director Wes Ball, who was also at the helm of The Maze Runner and Scorch Trials, remains at the helm.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third film in the Y.A. movie franchise based on James Dashner’s book series, was originally intended for U.S. release on February 17, 2017, but the delays have forced Fox to reschedule the film’s U.S. opening for January 12, 2018. The film will arrive in Australia on January 11, 2018.
