Coronavirus: ‘The Bachelorette,’ ‘Stranger Things’ and More Suspending Production – What Does This Mean For Fans?

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

https://www.instagram.com/p/B9sv7vegj97/

“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 the Season 4 Trailer of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Sabrina Spellman is going out with a bang!

Netflix released the official trailer for the fourth and final season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

In the trailer, Sabrina’s birthday celebrations are cut short by a new evil descending on Greendale… The Eldritch Terrors, which are ancient entities that bring upon The Void aka “the end of all things.” Fitting, right?

Of course, Sabrina will have none of that, and she reaches out to get help from Sabrina Morningstar, who has been reigning in hell. 

There’s darkness and magic, sure, but don’t expect the series to go out without giving #TeamNick fans some love. 

“We’re endgame,” he tells Sabrina, and well, I can’t say that I disagree. 

Here’s the season’s official synopsis: “Over the course of Part 4’s eight episodes, The Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale. The coven must fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness to name a few), all leading up to… The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but will it be too late?”

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina hits Netflix on December 31, so you have something to do while ringing in the new year from quarantine!

Doctor Who Holiday Special 2020 Trailer

It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays. 

And that can only mean one thing — a special holiday episode of Doctor Who

BBC America announced the episode “Revolution of the Daleks” will air at 8 p.m. ET on New Year’s Day.

The announcement was accompanied by a trailer that includes Chris Noth, John Barrowman, and Jodie Whittaker’s Time Lord coming to you from behind a high-security alien prison.

Oh, there’s also flying Daleks. 

 

“We’ve crammed this year’s Doctor Who special with an explosion of extraordinary acting talent,” said showrunner Chris Chibnall in a statement. “Where else would you get British acting royalty, a globally renowned US screen star, an (inter)national treasure of stage and screen and one of Britain’s hottest young actors — just in the guest cast! Put those together with Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill, and Tosin Cole (and Daleks! Did I mention Daleks!) — and you get a cast to be exterminated for. And things will explode. Promise.”

So, mark your calendar’s and check out the trailer below:
