In light of the recent coronavirus outbreak, which has been declared a pandemic as President Donald Trump announced that a national emergency and urged for self-quarantine aka “social distancing,” many TV live TV shows have opted to go on without an audience while dramas have shuttered production completely.
All of Apple TV’s shows (including The Morning Show) will put filming on hold indefinitely, per Deadline.
ABC announced Jimmy Kimmel and General Hospital suspend production beginning Monday, March 16. They hope to be back on the air by March 30.
Netflix has grounded all of its shows in US and Canada for the next two weeks starting Monday, March 16. This includes Stranger Things, Sex/Life, Grace and Frankie, and Lucifer.
Deadline reports productions on shows outside of North America (re: The Witcher) are being assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Warner Bros. has shut down production on all current show’s and pilots (more than 70) including God Friended Me, Batwoman, and The Flash.
Riverdale suspended production after someone from the crew came in contact with someone that tested positive for coronavirus.
The Bachelorette is being postponed for at-least three weeks and will determine whether it’s safe to resume production.
Clare Crawley, who is taking the lead on the upcoming season, wrote this about the suspension on Instagram
“Well hello! Talk about most dramatic season ever! In all seriousness, Everyone’s health is the most important priority at this time, and as I’m sure you’ve heard, we are pressing pause for now on filming The Bachelorette.”
Disney also suspended production on 16 pilots along with all ABC-studio produced projects including Grey’s Anatomy for at least three weeks.
Chicago PD Extra’s Casting on Facebook thanked the cast and crew for everything and revealed they have wrapped up filming a month early.
It’s unclear if they managed to finish the season or if they’ll be forced to make some changes that stemmed from everything being out of their control.
NBCUniversal, the studio behind the Chicago franchise shows, suspended production or accelerated the season wrap schedules on 35 shows.
All of the upfront presentations set in New York City have also been canceled.
Now, you might be thinking: “how does this affect pilot season,” and that’s a valid question.
As every industry suffers the brunt of coronavirus-panic, the entertainment industry (including television) is being hit hard.
For established shows, they may end up delivering shorter seasons than expected, but many pilots are being derailed completely.
As the spring TV season wraps up (earlier than imagined for some shows), will networks utilize the oftentimes slower summer season? Will the fall season see a shakeup that network television has been hoping to break from for years?
Will on-the-bubble shows get lucky and score renewals as networks need fall content as pilots get sidelined?
And what happens when writers are out of work and unable to deliver new content?
Everything is up in the air right now, and for TV lovers, that means you have to prepare for your current programming to get a much-needed but not anticipated shakeup. It’s “go with the flow” when it comes to staple shows, so please be understanding!

WATCH: Freeform Drops ‘The Bold Type’ Fifth and Final Season Trailer
Raise a glass to the final season of The Bold Type.
Freeform unleashed a trailer for the final 6 episodes of the fashion-focused drama and things are heating up between old flames, while new ones are also on the horizon.
Kat is still trying to get over her problematic hook-up with Ava, while her ex, Adeena, is back in her life.
After a disagreement about children, Sutton and Richard ended their brief marriage. But it seems that all is not lost as the teaser shows them having trouble letting go (and still hooking up).
I have faith that Sutton and Richard will figure it out because they’ve always been #relationshipgoals.
Jane’s continuing to find her voice and is possibly, definitely developing feelings for a writer that’s “under her.”
Watch the trailer below now:

WATCH: ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 Trailer Focuses on Eleven’s Past
A new promo for the upcoming Stranger Things Season 4 is putting the focus back on Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
Netflix released a new video, which dives into Eleven’s dark and heartbreaking past.
It also marks the return of her “papa,” Dr. Martin Brenner.
The craziest part is that it seems like Eleven isn’t the only supernatural child in Hawkins. Do they have the same powers as she does?
Or is this exploring her origin story? A shot of the door marked “11” indicates that this may be a look into the past.
Watch the teaser now:
As fans patiently wait for new episodes — which were delayed due to COVID — a former teaser revealed that Hopper is alive and a prisoner in Russia.
How do these two things connect?
