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!

All the Celebrities Who Have Tested Positive for Coronavirus Including Tom Hanks, Andy Cohen, and More
Coronavirus sucks. There, I said it. Plain and simple, the pandemic has forced states into lockdown, school, restaurant, and bar closures, travel to come to a standstill, and self-distancing and self-quarantine to become a priority.
Tom Hanks was the first Hollywood actor to test positive for the virus alongside his wife, Rita Wilson, and since then, the cases have only been going up.
We’re sending good vibes and strength to everyone affected by the virus.
Here are all the famous coronavirus patients.

Spring 2020 TV Shows and Premiere Dates You Need to Know!
Believe it or not, today is the first day of spring.
Personally, it feels like the furthest thing from spring as the weather outside is gloomy and rainy, and we’re all quarantined at home due to the coronavirus outbreak, which is necessary precaution but an unfortunate one.
The pandemic has affected nearly every single industry including the production of many of your favorite TV shows. It’s also forced a handful of shows like The Resident and the Chicago franchise to air shortened seasons.
It’s also affected upcoming programming as many shows that were scheduled to air this spring are in limbo, canceled, or postponed.
On the bright side, there’s still a lot to look forward to in the world of network television and streaming as the industry works hard to entertain the masses and bring them some semblance of normalcy.
