A Whole Host Of TV Productions Have Been Suspended, Including BATWOMAN, SUPERGIRL, And STRANGER THINGS

Following the news that Disney has pulled the plug on its big screen productions and all upcoming pilots, it's now Netflix and Warner Bros. TV that are feeling the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic...

President Donald Trump has just declared the Coronavirus a "national emergency," and the impact on the entertainment industry is still being felt in a major way. Earlier today, we learned that Disney has hit the pause button on everything from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings to The Little Mermaid, while work on all of their TV pilots has been halted. 

Now, The New York Times' John Koblin is reporting that, "Netflix is halting production on all scripted TV series and films in the US and Canada for at least two weeks, two people briefed on the plans tell me. This will affect dozens of shows/movies." Among them is Stranger Things 4

As for Warner Bros. TV, they've announced today that they are "halting production on some of our 70+ series and pilots currently filming or about to begin." While there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on any of their productions, "the health and safety of our employees, casts and crews remains our top priority." A full list of shows affected by this has not been revealed. 

However, thanks to Deadline and TV Line, we know that Batwoman, Lucifer, and Supergirl are among them. Earlier today, it was reported that The Flash's production has been put on hold.

Pennyworth has also been shut down, and this list will more than likely continue to grow.

Right now, we're facing countless delays of TV shows and movies which are currently on the way, and it's too soon to say how much things are going to change moving forward. We could be in for a very quiet few months, though, especially as productions closing down is now becoming the norm. 

We'll keep you guys updated.
