Series 34 of Casualty commenced airing on 17 August 2019. Filming for the series' first episode took place in April 2019. It will comprise 46 episodes. Whilst Simon Harper continued to serve as the show's executive producer, it was confirmed by the BBC in April 2019 that Lucy Rafferty had stepped down as series producer. In September 2019, it was announced that Loretta Preece would assume the role, with her being credited from episode 5 onwards.

Prior to the broadcast of the premiere episode, it was announced that Neet Mohan would return from a four-month break to reprise the role of junior doctor Rashid Masum, and Victor Oshin would join the main cast as F1 Mason Reede. In episode 5, Michael Stevenson made his final appearance as paramedic Iain Dean following the conclusion of his major mental health storyline; his departure was announced earlier in the year, and Jane Hazlegrove returned to the show as veteran character Kathleen "Dixie" Dixon for the occasion. In the subsequent episode, Iain's replacement Lev Malinovsky was introduced and portrayed by Uriel Emil. In October 2019, Cathy Shipton announced that she was filming her final scenes as Lisa "Duffy" Duffin who first appeared in Casualty's first episode in September 1986, and it was confirmed in November 2019 that Amanda Mealing would return to the show as consultant Connie Beauchamp in January 2020. In December 2019, the show's winter trailer was released, revealing that Kirsty Mitchell would join the series as advanced clinical practitioner Faith Cadogan.

On 18 March 2020, the BBC announced that all filming for BBC Studios continuing dramas, including Holby City, had been postponed until further notice due to the spread of COVID-19. On 2 May, an episode directed by Steve Hughes and written by Simon Norman was pulled. It featured a storyline involving a substance which caused respiratory problems and forced the ED staff to wear personal protective equipment. Due to the episode's content mirroring the COVID-19 situation, the BBC deemed that it was inappropriate for broadcast and instead aired the subsequent episode with an extended recap covering some of the pulled episode's major events. On 30 May 2020, the BBC confirmed that Casualty would be going on a transmission break, and the series would resume later in the summer.[1]
