Recall that the filming of “Cerebrum” was delayed for more than two years. There was COVID-19 to explain this delay, as well as the professional burnout suffered by Claude Legault. In an email, Radio-Canada had clarified to the QMI Agency last November, announcing that François Papineau was taking over the role of psychiatrist Henri Lacombe that "Claude continues to take care of him" and cannot engage "in the hard work required to shoot an intense drama series like "Cerebrum". The decision not to postpone the filming of the series and to replace him to interpret Henri Lacombe was the best solution and was taken by mutual agreement with the latter.
