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!

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’

Published

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for 'Yellowstone' Prequel '1932'

 

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.

The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons. 

The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project. 

It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes. 

Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”

Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that. 

News of the new prequel first broke in February. 

“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”

It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.

All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last

Published

QUIZ: Which 'Legacies' Character Are You?

It’s the end of a franchise on The CW. 

The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. 

The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict. 

Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June. 

‘Dynasty,’ ‘Roswell, New Mexico,’ ‘Charmed’ Among Shows Canceled by The CW

And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series. 

Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling. 

The series will come to an end with its fourth season. 

The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!

Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half. 

It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
