All the TV and movies affected by the coronavirus so far

We’re keeping track of all the movie and TV show delays that have been affected by the coronavirus as the list grows on.

Updated April 20, 2020.

The film and TV industry has taken a swift hit in delays recently with the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. With what began with cases originating in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, the spread of the disease has made its way around the globe, and it’s affecting every reach of Hollywood.

Among the biggest changes to come have been movie studios’ response to the outbreak by delaying movie releases. No Time to Die was one of the first major movies to have its released date pushed back out of concern for audiences’ safety. It’s since been like a game of chicken for movie studios as they evaluate risking whether or not to keep upcoming releases in theaters or to push them to later dates.

The TV industry, too, has been affected. Though the results of delays may not be felt for some time. In most examples, filmings were delayed due to international productions or cases of people in production testing positive for COVID-19. Because most TV shows on television right now have had episodes already filmed, there will be more episodes to air. But for other shows (for series or seasons that have not aired yet), it will be a case-by-case basis for how long production delays will impact season premieres.
