COVID has hit Chicago Med

While many medical dramas are incorporating the very real pandemic into their upcoming storylines, the NBC drama set in Chicago has to deal with the effects of COVID in real life. 

Deadline reports that production on the NBC medical drama has been shut down for two full weeks after a production team member was tested positive for the novel virus. 

The team member was allegedly sent home immediately following the positive result and the series decided to pause production out of an abundance of caution. 

This is reportedly the second member in the department to test positive. 

Chicago Med began filming last week ahead of its season 6 premiere, which is set for Wednesday, November 11 along with sister shows, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD, which are said to begin production next month. 

It’s unclear if this will affect the premiere date for the series.

Netflix Passes on Renewing Canceled NBC Drama ‘Manifest’

Manifest Season Finale Review Mayday Part 1 and 2 Season 3 Episode 12 and 13

Manifest will not fly again.

Netflix has officially passed on renewing the Manifestaccording to Deadline

The plane drama was abruptly canceled after three seasons leaving fans with absolutely no answers as to what led to the disappearance of Flight 828. 

It’s a surprising move considering the series has been steadily holding at #1 after being added to Netflix.

Fans also rallied on social media with the #SaveManifest campaign, but sadly, all efforts were unsuccessful. 

Sources say that since Netflix opted to pass on saving the drama, Warner Bros. Television, the studio responsible for the series, has concluded efforts to rehome it as it’s reportedly too complicated with rights and cast contracts. 

For now, reps for Netflix and WBTV declined to comment.

However, it seems to be a done deal as series creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm the solemn news tweeting: “Manifest Gratitude, Final Edition Thank YOU, our fans. You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018. Ever since, you’ve watched religiously, parsed every word, cried a lot, laughed a little, puzzle-solved, and never, ever, wavered in your support. I’ll never forget it.”

The third season ended early this month with several cliffhangers, which makes this cancellation and failed rescue mission all the more heartbreaking. 

It’s unclear if NBC is totally against giving the series a wrap-up movie as it did with Timeless, but man, don’t fans deserve closure?

The series was initially pitched as a six-season drama, which means there’s plenty more story to tell. 

Even Rake agreed that fans deserve answers. After all, we didn’t spend three years of our lives tuning in weekly to find out what happened to the plane just to be left hanging.

We all know what happens to those who ignore Callings — it’s not good.

‘Friends’ Actor James Michael Tyler Opens Up About Stage 4 Prostate Cancer

James Michael Tyler

James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther, the Central Perk manager on the classic sitcom Friends, opened up about his Stage 4 Prostate Cancer on the Today show Monday morning.

After receiving the grim diagnosis in September 2018, the then 56-year-old actor was put on hormone therapy. It worked for a while before eventually spreading to his spine leaving him paralyzed in his lower body.

He revealed that he’s “been dealing with that diagnosis for almost the past three years…It’s stage 4 [now] late-stage cancer. So eventually, you know, it’s probably going to get me.”

During the recent HBO Max Friends reunion, Tyler had originally planned on attending in person but chose to join virtually, so as to not bring a downer on the happy moment.

“It was bittersweet, honestly. I was very happy to be included,” he said.

Now, he’s using his platform as a way to provide the important message to all men to get screened early, saying that “there are other options available to men if they catch it before me. Next time you go in for just a basic exam or yearly check-up, please ask your doctor for a PSA test.”

“I don’t want people to have to go through what I’ve been going through,” he said. “This is not…an easy process.”
