A number of TV shows and movies have shut down due to coronavirus.
There’s a lot going on in the world right now, and although this isn’t exactly the worst on the scale of things, it’s just another way that the COVID -19 pandemic is affecting everyday life.
Here’s some of the shows that have been impacted by COVID -19 so far…
One of the first TV shows to shut down due to coronavirus was Riverdale. A crew member was showing symptoms of the virus and as a precaution to all cast and crew filming for the end of season 4 was stopped.
In a statement from Warner Bros Television, a spokesman said: “We are working closely with the appropriate authorities and health agencies in Vancouver to identify and contact all individuals who may have come into direct contact with our team member.
“The health and safety of our employees, casts, and crews is always our top priority.
“We have and will continue to take precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world.”
Season 2 of Euphoria finally went into production, only for it to be shut down after a matter of days.
The cast had met to do script read-throughs, but reportedly that’s as far as they got. It had been anticipated that a second season of Euphoria would be released over the summer, but that seems unlikely now.
We only waited 16 years for a Friends reunion and we got so, so close, but now the reunion episode has been postponed.
Filming was due to take place this week in Los Angeles, but it now won’t go ahead until the coronavirus crisis is over.
On the bright side, the Friends reunion is something to look forward to once this is over.
Movie releases have been rescheduled
It’s not only TV shows that have been effected by coronavirus, a number of high-profile movies have also been postponed.
There’s a lot of movies in production that had to be halted, but also a number of cinema releases have had to be rescheduled. The latest Bond movie No Time To Die will now be released in November instead of April. Peter Ribbit 2: The Runaway has been postponed until August.
The live-action remake of Disney’s Mulan was set to be released on 27th of March, but it has now been cancelled with no new release date as of yet.
