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!

9 TV Shows to Watch After Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving brings together friends and family for a shared meal.
But after all the turkey, sides, and pie is cleared off the plate, the only acceptable activity is binge-watching some feel-good TV shows.
Here’s what you should watch post-Thanksgiving dinner!
You’ll be just as surprised as Mel to fall in love with the picturesque town of Virgin River. Come for the views, stay for the Jack.
Hart of Zoe
Dr. Zoe Hart arrives in Alabama looking for a fresh start and learns that the Southern way of living might actually be what’s best for her.
An unbreakable mother and daughter bond, a charming town that would make any Lifetime movie jealous, and an unspoken love for coffee? Say no more.
Selena + Chef
You might know her as a Disney Channel actress and pop star, but now, she’s adding chef to her resume. And since Thanksgiving is all about food, this is one show you don’t want to pass up.
There are only nine episodes available, but the NBC series has gripped audiences as it ponders how much impact one small choice can have on the rest of your life.
The modern-day update to the Chuck Norris classic hones in on family over everything with a side of roundhouse kicks.
A Million Little Things
A group from Boston bond under the unlikeliest of circumstances and get a much-needed wake-up call following the death of a close friend.
Though it falls into the “sci-fi mystery” category, La Brea hinges on a family determined to find their way back to each other despite all the obstacles standing in their way and all the sacrifices needed to be made.
Dream Home Makeover
If there’s ever a time to get inspired for a home makeover, it’s after the holidays (and during Black Friday when everything is on sale!) And the McGee family is the cherry on top!
This is… a no-brainer. No show captures the essence of what it means to be a complicated, loving, flawed, and fulfilled family more than this NBC drama.
‘Manifest’ Starts Production – When Will Season 4 Premiere?
It’s official — Manifest Season 4 is taking off.
Production on the resurrected show has officially begun, and while fans are thrilled, the cast members are flying at high altitudes.
J.R Ramirez, who plays Jared Vasquez on the drama, shared a glimpse of his first day back on set.
“Walking through the stages this am… Just felt different,” Ramirez wrote on Instagram next to a photo by his dressing room.
“I’ve been working in this business for almost two decades now and I know to land a team of Cast n Crew that is as Collaborative, Dedicated and in my opinion (Most Importantly) “Ego Checked” as these Beautifully Talented Humans are… well it RARELY happens,” he added.
“It’s only day one and you can already feel the Level of Appreciation this group has for the Magical Ride that is Manifest!” he continued. “But let’s keep it real… The reality is ALL of This Magic is happening because of YOU guys! You guys made this happen! We Love You. Can’t wait for you to see how it all comes together…”
Vazquez is a police lieutenant that often helps the Stone family as they try to figure out the mystery of Flight 828. He’s also Michaela’s former fiancé.
Josh Dallas, who plays Ben Stone, also took to Instagram to mark the beginning of season 4. He posted a photo of the script and Ben’s iconic black-framed spectacles with the caption: “Something’s happening. #mainfest season 4 has begun!! Nothing will be the same.”
Netflix saved the show months after NBC pulled the plug on it despite fan pleas and petitions.
The streamer renewed the supernatural drama for a fourth and final season to tie up loose ends, give fans closure, and finally reveal the mystery of what actually happened to flight 828.
We’ll update this post as we find out more!
WATCH: ‘Emily in Paris’ is Falling in Amour in the Season 2 Trailer
Fashion, amour, and sex are at the forefront of Emily in Paris Season 2.
But not even a getaway with the girls to St. Tropez can keep Emily from getting all wrapped up in her feels about Gabriel.
Sylvie encourages her to “fall in love” and “make mistakes” in order to “do Paris right” and while I love that she’s essentially Emily’s chic fairy godmother while abroad, but that advice is terrible in terms of this situation.
Emily’s tryst with Gabriel — including the best sex of her life — is hurting Camille, one of the few people who showed her kindness and hospitality.
Both Emily and Gabriel are lying to Camille at every turn, and she’s suspicious considering Gabriel decided to stay in Paris and give up the opportunity of a lifetime to advance his career.
She deserves the truth.
However, it’s hard to fault Emily for falling back into Gabriel’s arms. Have you seen the man?
He’s not the only one sweeping her off her feet in the City of Love.
Antoine is still around and another charming man enters the picture by the name of Alfie, played by Katy Keene’s Lucien Laviscount.
Who will win her heart?
