Below is a list of every upcoming entertainment project that has announced a delay or cancellation due to the global spread of the novel coronavirus. You'll also find status updates for projects that are unaffected. This page will be updated as additional postponements are announced.

Recent updates

12/3: In an unprecedented move, Warner Bros. revealed that it will make its entire 2021 film slate available on HBO Max (in 4K) immediately on each film's theatrical release date. Films receiving dual streaming/theatrical releases should include big budget titles like The Matrix 4, Godzilla vs. Kong, The Suicide Squad, and Dune, as well as potential awards contenders such as Judas and the Black Messiah and The Many Saints of Newark.

11/23: Universal has bumped its Jessica Chastain spy thriller The 355 a full year from January 15, 2021 to January 14, 2022.

11/23: After sitting on the shelf for most of the year, Joe Carnahan's upcoming sci-fi action thriller Boss Level will now skip theaters and debut on Hulu sometime in 2021.

11/19: Xbox exclusive CrossfireX has been pushed back to sometime in 2021.

11/18: After multiple release delays, Wonder Woman 1984 will now stream on HBO Max beginning Christmas Day.

11/12: HBO Max's delayed Friends Reunion Special, which was originally supposed to be a launch title for the streaming service, is now expected to tape in March.

11/12: MTV has finally given up on this year's MTV Movie & TV Awards ceremony. Instead, the network will salute the best entertainment of the past four decades in a "Greatest of All Time" ceremony on 12/6.

11/12: Production on Chicago Fire has been shut down after multiple positive covid tests. Several additional but unspecified shows are also on hold following positive tests at a CBS studio (though they aren't all CBS shows).

11/11: Production on the next season of Doctor Who has finally begun, but the season has been shortened from 11 to 8 episodes.

11/9: The next Fantastic Beasts movie has been pushed back seven months to July 2022.

11/7: Production on season 2 of The Witcher has been halted following multiple positive covid tests.

11/6: Disney has pulled its remaining 2020 theatrical releases, Free Guy and Death on the Nile, from its release schedule. New dates have not been announced.

10/28: Considered a potential Oscar contender, the Jennifer Hudson-starring Aretha Franklin biopic Respect has now been delayed out of the current Oscar eligibility period and will reach theaters on August 13, 2021.

10/27: With the pandemic making production more costly and time-consuming, CBS will reduce the episode count for most (or possibly all) of its shows this season from the usual 22 to somewhere in the 16-18 episode range.

10/21: Ghostbusters: Afterlife has been pushed back even further to June 11, 2021.

10/21: The oft-delayed Candyman reboot has now been given an August 27, 2021 release date.

10/15: HBO Max will no longer move forward with its series adaptation of Americanah after a covid-related production delay caused the loss of star Lupita Nyong'o.

10/13: Paramount has sold off another one of its upcoming theatrical releases. The Eddie Murphy sequel Coming 2 America will now be an Amazon Prime Video exclusive this December.

10/8: Soul will be the next major film to skip theaters and head straight to streaming. The Pixar film will debut on Disney+ on Christmas Day (though it will still play in theaters in other countries).

10/6: Jurassic World: Dominion has been pushed back a full year and will now open on June 10, 2022.

10/5: Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated Dune remake has been delayed by nearly 10 months from December 18 of this year to October 1, 2021. (The Batman is currently scheduled to be released on the same day, so consider that film likely to get bumped. UPDATE: The delay has moved from likely to definite, and the film will now open on March 4, 2022. All of the other upcoming DC films will also be delayed further as a result.)

10/5: The fourth season of Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel likely won't air until a year after originally planned (in late 2021) since filming won't begin until January at the earliest.

10/3: The 007 film No Time to Die is finding that 2020 is no time to be released. MGM/Universal have announced yet another delay for the film, which is now slated to open on April 2, 2021. (That move, in turn, will push the next Fast & Furious movie to May 28, 2021.)

10/2: Originally set for an October 9 theatrical release, Warner Bros.'s adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Witches is now skipping theaters and will premiere on HBO Max on October 22nd.

10/1: Showtime's Billions saw its 5th season cut short by five episodes by the pandemic, but those unfilmed episodes will now be completed and air sometime in 2021 (followed by a 6th season).

9/30: Many TV shows have returned to production over the past few weeks, but now some are encountering new shutdowns due to positive covid tests (or, in Canada, a delay in receiving test results). Impacted shows include Chicago Med, Riverdale, and Batwoman.

9/28: Genius: Aretha (Nat Geo) won't return to production until October, putting a 2020 debut in doubt. The miniseries was originally expected to debut in May.

9/23: As expected, Black Widow has been delayed again, this time to May 7, 2021. That move triggers a chain reaction of Marvel release dates, with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings moving back two months to July 9, 2021 and Eternals getting a nine-month delay to November 5, 2021. For now, Disney is keeping its last remaining major 2020 release, Pixar's Soul, in its November slot, but industry observers expect that to change (or for the film to move to Disney+).

9/23: Also delayed is Steven Spielberg's West Side Story remake (moving back a full year to December 10, 2021), Death on the Nile (taking West Side Story's original date of December 18, 2020), and the Ben Affleck thriller Deep Water (bumped almost a full year from this November to August 13, 2021).

9/20: An overlong production delay means that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+) will no longer debut in 2020.

9/18: The Phil Lord/Chris Miller animated film Connected has been delayed a second time, and will no longer reach theaters in October. A new date has not been named.

9/17: ABC will attempt to launch its fall dramas (including one newcomer, Big Sky, as well as For Life, which had previously been given a 2021 start date) in November, but it looks like the previously announced fall return of The Rookie has been pushed to 2021.

9/12: Survivor (CBS) will be unable to film its 41st season this fall as planned. Filming on seasons 41 and 42 may happen back-to-back next spring and summer (and even that is not guaranteed), but the earliest that the next new season will air is fall of 2021.

9/11: The upcoming Candyman reboot has been bumped from October 16 to an unspecified 2021 release.

9/11: Warner Bros. has delayed Wonder Woman 1984 yet again, this time to Christmas Day. For now, fellow WB film Dune will keep its December 18 release date, but industry experts expect that to change.

9/9: The FX series Atlanta won't return to filming until sometime during the first half of 2021, meaning that season 3 won't debut until late 2021 or 2022.

9/4: Syfy's series adaptation of Chucky will be unable to begin filming this fall as planned. With production starting now in 2021, it is likely the series won't air until the 2021-22 season.

9/4: HBO Max's reboot of Gossip Girl will not air until 2021. Filming is expected to begin in late October.

9/3: Amazon has canceled its Spielberg-produced, Spanish-language miniseries Cortes y Moctezuma, which had been in the middle of production when the pandemic forced a shutdown.

9/3: The Batman was forced to halt production again (just days after filming resumed) after a cast member tested positive for covid.

8/27: While NBC will attempt to launch several of its scripted shows (including This Is Us and its Chicago dramas) in November, it has delayed the many of them to 2021, including these shows previously scheduled for fall debuts: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Law & Order: Organized Crime, Manifest, and New Amsterdam.

8/24: The postponed iHeartRadio Music Awards broadcast (originally scheduled for March 29) has now been canceled.

8/20: Paramount's Love and Monsters (previously called Monster Problems) will now skip theaters and head straight to VOD on 10/16.

8/19: The Batman will attempt to resume production in September.

8/18: The late September theatrical release for Julie Taymor's Gloria Steinem biopic The Glorias has been canceled. Instead, the film will stream on Prime Video beginning 9/30.

8/18: ABC's Dancing With the Stars will return on September 14th, though it is unclear precisely how that will happen (assuming that the show inhabits the same universe that we do).

8/18: The delayed seven final episodes of Supernatural (CW) will begin airing on October 8. (Filming began today on the remaining unfilmed episodes.)

8/17: The second season of The Witcher (Netflix) returned to production today after a five-month pause and the season will now stream sometime in 2021.

8/11: The AFI Fest has canceled all in person events for the 2020 version of the festival, originally scheduled for September. Instead, some events will be held virtually in October.

8/11: Lionsgate has abandoned plans for a theatrical release for the Sarah Paulson-starring thriller Run, which will now head straight to Hulu later this year (date tbd).

8/10: Fargo's delayed fourth season has been rescheduled for September 27th, assuming that production is able to begin on the two remaining unfilmed episodes later this month as planned.

8/7: The 2021 Tribeca Film Festival has been delayed from its usual April start. It will now run June 9-20. Next year's Sundance Film Festival, meanwhile, has been shortened from 11 to 7 days, and has been pushed back by one week to begin on January 28, 2021.

8/7: HBO Max has postponed its Friends reunion special for a second time. It is unclear when production will occur.

8/6: The oft-delayed Janelle Monae horror film Antebellum will now bypass theaters and head straight to VOD on 9/18.

8/6: Bill and Ted Face the Music has traveled through time yet again. It will now appear in theater(s) and VOD on August 28.

8/4: Disney has given up on a nationwide theatrical release for its delayed live-action Mulan remake. Instead, it'll come to the Disney+ streaming service on September 4—but only if you pay an extra $29.99 to view it. (It'll also come to any remaining open movie theaters that same day.)

8/4: The August early access release for PC game Baldur's Gate III has been delayed indefinitely.

8/2: The previously postponed Janelle Monae horror film Antebellum will no longer open in theaters on August 21st. A new date has not been set.

7/27: Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins will now hit theaters sometime in 2021 rather than this October.

7/27: Tenet will now open in dozens of countries outside the U.S. on August 26th before possibly reaching American theaters in some cities on its new date of September 2nd. Precisely which cities will get the film then is still up in the air.

7/27: Next year's Golden Globe nominations have been pushed back to February 3.

7/24: It seems likely that the CW shows which film in Vancouver—The Flash, Superman & Lois, and Riverdale—will be able to begin production on their fall seasons in late August, which would mean they would air as originally scheduled later this year. (The same goes for the delayed final batch of Supernatural episodes.)

7/24: Delayed spinoff series The Walking Dead: World Beyond will now debut on October 4, the same day that the delayed season 10 finale of parent series The Walking Dead will now air. Confusingly, it is no longer the season finale—six extra episodes have been ordered. But those bonus eps and the show's 11th season won't arrive until sometime in 2021.

7/24: The delayed sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home has been bumped yet again, this time to December 17, 2021.

7/24: Paramount has once again delayed its upcoming tentpole films Top Gun: Maverick (now due July 2, 2021) and A Quiet Place Part 2 (April 23, 2021).

7/24: Paramount is reportedly in the process of selling its delayed Tom Clancy thriller Without Remorse to Amazon, which would make a theatrical release (currently planned for February) much less likely.

7/24: The theatrical release of the Gerard Butler thriller Greenland has been dleayed (in the U.S. only) from August 14 to September 25.

7/24: BBC America hit Killing Eve will be unable to return to production as scheduled next month, meaning that the 4th season is unlikely to debut next spring as originally planned.

7/23: Disney's live-action Mulan remake will no longer open in theaters next month. A new date has not been set, though it still seems likely to reach theaters at some point rather than heading straight to streaming. The studio has also delayed many of its remaining 2020 films, including The Personal History of David Copperfield (just a two-week delay, to August 28), Death on the Nile (also a two-week delay, to October 23), Antlers (to February 19, 2021), The Last Duel (from December of this year to October 15, 2021).

7/23: Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch will no longer open this year, and it does not have a new date.

7/23: Bill and Ted Face the Music has been delayed again, this time from August to September 1. It will now be a simultaneous VOD and theatrical release on that date.

7/23: Disney has delayed its upcoming Avatar sequels as well as a new Star Wars trilogy. Avatar 2 will now come out on December 16, 2022 (a full year later than planned, bumping the three follow-ups by a year as well). The Star Wars films have also been pushed by a year, with the first arriving on December 22, 2023.

7/23: Several CBS reality shows have announced their coronavirus plans. Love Island will use a Las Vegas hotel to film its 2nd season, which should start airing at the end of summer. And the slightly delayed but already self-quarantining-by-nature Big Brother will begin its all-stars season on August 5.

7/20: The oft-rescheduled summer theatrical release of rom-com The Broken Hearts Gallery has now been postponed indefinitely.

7/20: The Conjuring 3 has been delayed to June 4, 2021.

7/20: Unsurprisingly, Tenet will no longer open in theaters next month. This time, the film has not been given a new release date. Expect an unconventional release at some point in the future.

7/17: Disney+ original series Marvel's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will no longer debut in August, since the final few weeks of production could not be completed in time. A new date has not been set.

7/16: The next Destiny 2 expansion, Destiny 2: Beyond Light, has been pushed from September to November.

7/14: This next season of Survivor will not air this fall on CBS as planned. Production has been unable to restart in time for a fall debut.

7/14: This year's Telluride Film Festival has been canceled.

7/14: Rather than attempt to restart production (which was halted in March) on its postponed Evel Knievel miniseries Evel, USA Network is shutting down the project altogether.

7/13: The theatrical release of videogame adaptation Monster Hunter will now come out next April rather than this September.

7/13: CBS's The Bold and The Beautiful is expected to be the first daytime soap back on the air when it begins airing new episodes on July 20 (though the first post-covid episode won't air until July 23).

7/8: Focus Features has delayed two of its upcoming films. The Kevin Costner drama Let Him Go will move from August 21 to November 6, while the Tom McCarthy-directed thriller Stillwater has been pulled from November 6 and no longer has a release date.

7/8: The Halloween sequel Halloween Kills has been delayed a full year to October 15, 2021. A follow-up film, Halloween Ends, will thus be delayed to 2022. Blumhouse has also bumped its fifth Purge film, The Forever Purge, to July 9, 2021. And Jordan Peele's Candyman reboot was delayed a second time, but only by one month, to October 16 of this year.

7/7: A24's horror film Saint Maud has also rejoined the release date shuffle, and will also skip its latest date, July 17. There's no word on its next release date or its next postponement.

7/7: Sony's already-postponed film festival hit The Climb will no longer hit its latest release date, July 17. A new date has not been set.

7/2: The 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards have been pushed from January to March.

6/25: The theatrical release of Christopher Nolan's Tenet has been delayed again, this time from July 31st to August 12th. (What will be different on August 12th is unclear.)

6/25: Bandai Namco has delayed its upcoming game Tales of Arise indefinitely.

6/22: The twice-delayed SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run will no longer open in theaters in August (or anytime). After a (still tbd) VOD release, the film will become a CBS All Access exclusive in early 2021.

6/18: The Critics Choice Awards have also been postponed. It will now air on March 7 rather than in January.

6/16: Production is resuming today on The Bold and the Beautiful after a three-month hiatus, making it the first American television series to return to filming since production halted in March. Update 6/17: Filming was again paused after just one day, though it should resume next week.

Other film awards are expected to reschedule their 2020-21 dates as well.

6/12: Warner Bros. has pushed back the release of the highly anticipated Christopher Nolan film Tenet by two weeks. It'll now open in theaters on July 31 (theoretically). That delay, in turn, will push Wonder Woman 1984 back by six weeks to a new release date of October 2.

6/12: Disney's live-action/CGI hybrid The One and Only Ivan will now skip theaters and head straight to Disney+ on August 21.

6/11: Little Hope, the next game in the Dark Pictures anthology, has been delayed from summer to fall.

In other CW news, the network is delaying the 2020-21 launch of all of its new and returning scripted shows until January 2021 at the earliest, and will fill its fall schedule with shows acquired from other networks (like Tell Me a Story and Swamp Thing), reality programs, and a few summer shows it will hold back a few months.

5/13: Disney will now attempt to release its oft-delayed X-Men spinoff The New Mutants in theaters on August 28. The film's most recent delay (from a planned April 3 release) was caused by theater closings, though previous delays (dating back to 2018) were not virus-related.

4/29: Though filmed prior to the pandemic, season 32 of The Amazing Race (CBS) will no longer air in May. The network has pushed it back to an unspecified date later in the year as it attempts to space out what little remaining new programming it has available.

4/29: The 47th Daytime Emmy Awards will be handed out without any in-person ceremonies this year (three had been planned), though the academy will likely create some sort of remotely produced streaming show (or shows). No decision is expected on September's Primetime Emmy Awards for a while.

Movies (and festivals)

The 355
Universal's Jessia Chastain-starring spy thriller was delayed from January 15, 2021 to January 14, 2022.
Academy Awards
The 2021 awards ceremony has been pushed back two months from February 28 to April 25. A corresponding change to the Oscar eligibility period means that films opening in January and February will be eligible for the 2021 ceremony (rather than 2022). Streaming-only films (that skip theaters entirely) will be eligible for the 2021 Oscars for the first time, provided that the films originally had a theatrical release scheduled. This is only a temporary waiver, however; once/if theaters reopen, the one-week theatrical screening requirement will return for films scheduled for release after that point. This rule change is similar to one just implemented for the 2021 Golden Globes.
AFI Fest
All in-person events scheduled for September have been canceled. Instead, the 2020 festival will be held virtually the week of October 15–22.
An American Pickle
The film adaptation of Simon Rich's story, starring Seth Rogen in dual roles, will no longer head to theaters. Sony has sold the rights to the new streaming service HBO Max, which will stream the film later in 2020.

Update 7/23: All four sequels have been delayed by a full year. Avatar 2 is now scheduled for a December 16, 2022 release, with the follow-ups due in 2024, 2026, and 2028, assuming that those years happen as scheduled. Note that filming on Avatar 2 was completed in September 2020, with Avatar 3 not far behind.
Bacurau
The well-reviewed Brazilian film was supposed to roll out to various arthouse cinemas this month.

The Batman
Production on the Robert Pattinson-starring film has been paused for at least two weeks (starting 3/14). For now, the release date remains June 25, 2021, and a delay seems likely, though over six weeks of filming was finished prior to the shutdown. On 4/20, the film's release was delayed from June 25, 2021 to October 1, 2021.

Coming 2 America

Downhill
The recent theatrical release will get an early VOD release on 3/27.

Because of a weather-dependent storyline, the delay in production means that this fall's 10th season has been delayed a full calendar year and will now air in fall 2021. (However, a new AHS spinoff could air in the fall or early next year.) Production is expected to begin in October 2020.
American Housewife (ABC)
Production halted 3/14. The next season will debut about a month later than normal, on October 28th.
American Idol (ABC)
Filming has ceased as of 3/17. The final already filmed episode will air on 4/5 (bumped from 3/30, when the show will not air). The delayed live episodes will now air beginning Sunday 4/26, with all remaining contestants performing from their homes.
American Ninja Warrior (NBC)
The delayed 12th season will launch on September 7, but the season will be about half the length (just 8 episodes) of a typical cycle due to the production shutdown.

Animal Kingdom (TNT)
Filming on the next season began the week of September 7.
Archer S11 (FXX)

Atlanta S3/S4 (FX)
Production halted 3/13. The S3 premiere date was previously delayed to early 2021 for non-virus reasons. Filming (on both seasons concurrently) will not begin until sometime in the first half of 2021, so it looks like the earliest that S3 could air is fall 2021 (and that could easily get pushed to 2022).
The Bachlor (ABC)
Production on the 2021 season could begin in late September or early October, albeit at a different (non-California) location than normal. That should mean that next season will hit its usual launch window.
The Bachelorette (ABC)
Production halted on 3/13 just at the start of filming. The season was scheduled to debut on May 18 but that date will likely change. But it will reportedly head back into production in July with the goal of airing during ABC's fall season. Update 8/27: The season will now debut on October 13.
Barry S3 (HBO)

Billboard Music Awards (NBC)
The Kelly Clarkson-hosted ceremony will not take place on April 29th as planned. The new date is October 14.
Billions (Showtime)
While the 5th season will debut on 5/3 as originally planned, only seven episodes will be able to air. The five remaining (and still unfilmed) episodes will air sometime in 2021.
Black Monday (Showtime)
The currently airing season will now be limited to one new episode per week (rather than two). Since only six episodes were filmed prior to the halt in production, the season will be split in two, with the remaining four episodes expected to air in late 2020 to air beginning June 28.
black-ish (ABC)
Unaffected. Filming on the remainder of the 2019-20 season is already complete. Season 7 will debut about a month later than normal, on October 21st.
The Blacklist (NBC)

Carnival Row S2 (Amazon)
Filming halted 3/12. But production was able to resume in the Czech Republic over the summer, and filming was completed in mid August.

Production halted 3/12. The next season is expected to debut in January, assuming that production can begin in September or October as planned.
The Chi (Showtime)
The upcoming 3rd season has been moved forward a few weeks and will now debut on 6/21. All episodes have already been filmed.
Chicago Fire / Chicago Med / Chicago P.D. (NBC)

Filming on Chicago Fire was also halted in mid-November following positive tests.
Chucky (Syfy)

Claws S4 (TNT)
Production on the show's final season halted 3/13.
CMT Music Awards (CMT)
The televised ceremony has been delayed from June 3 to October 14.
Conan (TBS)
New nightly full-length episodes will resume on March 30, using an all-remote format (shot on iPhones) and videochat guest interviews.

Amazon's Steven Spielberg-produced, Spanish-language miniseries, written by Steven Zaillian and starring Javier Bardem, was canceled completely on 9/3 after it was previously shut down mid-production due to the pandemic.

Cruel Summer (Freeform)
The new drama series (formerly titled Last Summer) was expected to debut this fall, but now will not arrive until sometime in 2021.
The Daily Show With Trevor Noah (Comedy Central)
Production halted 3/13. The network hopes to have the show back on the air at the end of the month. In the meantime, new home-recorded segments are streaming daily and will begin airing on Comedy Central nightly at 11p beginning Monday 3/23. Episodes were expanded to 45 minutes beginning 4/27.
Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
Likely unaffected. A new season will begin on September 14th, though the network has yet to clarify what steps are being taken to ensure that will actually happen.
Days of Our Lives (NBC)
The soap is in the middle of a regularly scheduled hiatus, but an announcement on 3/17 indicated that it will not resume production at the end of March as originally planned.

Desus and Mero (Showtime)
The talk show will return with new home-recorded episodes the night of March 30.
Doctor Who (BBC America)
Production on the delayed 13th season began in mid November, which means that the season will likely begin later than normal (though should still arrive in 2021). The season has been shortened from 11 to 8 episodes.
Dr. Death (Peacock)
A delay in filming (to sometime in the fall of 2020) caused original star Jamie Dornan to drop out of the Peacock original miniseries. Joshua Jackson will replace him.
Dynasty (CW)

The Ellen DeGeneres Show (syndicated)
Production halted 3/13 with a target return date of 3/30. The show will now return the week of 4/6.
Empire (Fox)
Production on the show's final season was halted 3/14. Two episodes, including the series finale, were incomplete at the time of the shutdown, and Fox has indicated that they will not be completed and thus will never air. The series will now end early with the 4/21 episode, though there's a slight chance a more proper finale will be filmed at a later date.
Emmy Awards
Nominations have been delayed two weeks (from 7/14 to 7/28), but for now the ceremony remains scheduled for 9/20.
Euphoria S2 (HBO)
Production on the second season (which had yet to begin) was delayed on 3/13.

Evil (CBS)
Production on season 2 could begin in September (though is not yet definite). If it does, a late 2020 season debut is not out of the question.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+)
The new live-action Marvel series was scheduled to debut sometime in August. That has not officially changed yet, but filming of the season's final episode(s) was halted on 3/11. It appears that most of the season has already been filmed, however. Update 7/17: With Disney still unable to complete the final few weeks of filming, the show will no longer debut in August. A new date has not been set, though the show will no longer air this year, since filming did not resume until late September.
Fargo (FX)
Production halted on 3/13, and on 3/16 FX announced that the season 4 premiere would be postponed from its April 19 date. Two of the 10 episodes have not yet been filmed, and a best-case scenario is that the fourth season will debut this fall. Update 8/10: The 4th season will now debut on September 27, and filming on the final two episodes was completed on September 8, so no further delays will be necessary.
FBI / FBI: Most Wanted (CBS)
Production halted 3/13. For FBI, the final three episodes of the season will not be filmed, making the 3/31 episode its season-ender.
Fear the Walking Dead S6 (AMC)
Filming of the upcoming season was halted 3/13 and the hiatus will continue through April 12 at a minimum. A season premiere date had not been set but would have likely been in the summer.
Filthy Rich (Fox)
The new drama series, starring Kim Cattrall, was previously announced for the 2019-20 season—and has been filmed in its entirety—but will now be held back for the fall, when Fox will have fewer options for new material.
The Flash (CW)
Production halted 3/13. The final episode of the spring will air on 5/12, and the goal is to film and air the remaining few unproduced episodes later this year.
The Flight Attendant (HBO Max)

Production on the show's second season halted 3/13. The remaining two episodes began filming on August 17.
For Life (ABC)
The New York-filmed drama began production on its second season in late August, making it one of the first ABC shows to start filming, though filming had to be halted again for two weeks in September following a positive covid test. New episodes will not air until 2021. Update 9/17: ABC has moved up the season debut to November 18.
Foundation (Apple TV+)
Filming on Apple's upcoming series adaptation of the Isaac Asimov novels was suspended on 3/12.
Friends reunion special (HBO Max)
The special was originally supposed to tape the week of March 16 and be available at the launch of the new HBO Max streaming service (along with every episode of the original series). As of 4/10, the special still has not taped and thus will not be ready to stream in May. A new date has not been set, but the network is hoping to film the special at the end of the summer. Update 8/7: The special has been postponed for a second time, and will not enter production anytime soon. As of November, it looks like the special will be filmed in March 2021 and stream sometime after that.
Full Frontal With Samantha Bee (TBS)
Production halted 3/13. The March 18 episode did not air. New digital segments the week of 3/18, and new weekly shows (recorded at home) will resume on March 25.
General Hospital (ABC)
Production halt will run 3/16 through 4/10, at a minimum. Beginning the week of 3/30, the show will run just four days a week (with reruns on Fridays) in order to stretch out the remaining inventory. Production is expected to resume the week of 7/20. New episodes will begin airing August 3rd.
Genius: Aretha (Nat Geo)
Production halted 3/13. The miniseries was scheduled to debut 5/25, but will no longer hit that date. It is now expected to premiere "later this year." As of May, the miniseries was set to launch sometime this fall, but production did not resume until October 1st (and was shut down again later in October), finally wrapping near Thanksgiving. As a result, the season will now debut sometime in 2021.
The Gilded Age (HBO)
The new HBO (formerly NBC) series from the creator of Downton Abbey was originally scheduled to begin filming in mid-March, which obviously did not happen. It is now expected to begin production at the very end of September, which means the show will not debut until sometime in 2021 at the earliest.
The Girlfriend Experience S3 (Starz)
With filming delayed due to the coronavirus, the new season is unlikely to meet its original 2020 launch window. But production did begin in mid-August.
God Friended Me (CBS)
Production halted 3/13.
The Goldbergs (ABC)
Production halted 3/14 with only one episode left to film this season. It is unclear if that episode will be taped at a later date. Season 8 will debut in the fall about a month later than normal, on October 21st.
The Good Doctor (ABC)
Unaffected. Filming of the current season already complete, and the show will air as scheduled.
The Good Fight (CBS All Access)
Production halted 3/12 after filming was complete on at least some episodes. The fourth season did premiere on April 9 as originally scheduled, but some individual weekly episodes (such as the episode that would have aired on 4/16) will be delayed as post-production work on the already-filmed episodes continues to be impacted. On 5/14, CBSAA opted to end the season early (with the 5/28 episode) rather than attempt to film the final three episodes. However, the series was renewed for a 5th season.
Good Trouble S3 (Freeform)
Originally expected to air this summer, the series will now debut its third season in 2021.

The Great British Baking Show S11 (Netflix)
Filming on the next season, originally intended to begin in April, has been delayed.
Grey's Anatomy (ABC)
Production halted 3/12. The four unfilmed S16 episodes will not be produced; instead, the season will conclude with the 4/9 episode. Production on the next season is expected to begin in early September, though it is unclear whether the season will still be able to launch this fall as originally planned. (Update: It did, obviously, but the season is expected to have a lower episode count than normal.)
grown-ish S3 (Freeform)
The comedy was expected to air the second half of its current season this summer; instead, it won't arrive until 2021.
The Handmaid's Tale S4 (Hulu)
Production halted 3/15, midway through filming of the fourth season, and didn't resume until September. The halt means that the 4th season will now arrive sometime in 2021 rather than this year.
HBO Max streaming launch
No delay expected. The planned May launch (exact date tbd) of the new streaming service was confirmed as recently as April 9th.
I Know This Much Is True (HBO)
HBO has rescheduled the Mark Ruffalo miniseries from April 27 to May 10, presumably to space out what little remaining new content it has on the shelf.
iHeartRadio Music Awards (Fox)
The 3/29 live broadcast has been canceled. Online voting remains open, and organizers hope to reschedule the show for a later date. Update 8/24: The awards show will no longer air this year; winners will be announced online and via radio beginning 9/4.
Indebted (NBC)
Unaffected. Filming of the first season is already complete, and the show should continue to air as previously scheduled.
Invasion (Apple TV+)
Simon Kinberg's alien invasion series was partially filmed when the coronavirus forced a shutdown. Production was scheduled to resume the week of August 17 in the UK.
Jeopardy! (syndicated)
The game show resumed production (with a redesigned set) the week of July 27th, which means that new episodes could begin airing as soon as September.
Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC)
Production halted beginning 3/16. Reruns will air, but at a later hour, as the show's normal timeslot will temporarily be occupied by Nightline. Like other late night hosts, Kimmel is recording a monologue from home daily and streaming it on YouTube. New home-recorded episodes will resume the week of 3/30 though the show will continue to air in its new 12:05a slot until the week of April 13th, when it returns to 11:35p (with half-hour episodes). A summer hiatus for host Kimmel will end on September 21, when the show will return to the studio and regain its full-hour format.
Kentucky Derby (NBC)
The race has been postponed from May 2 to September 5.
Killing Eve (BBC America)
The premiere of season 3 has been moved forward two weeks to 4/12. The 4th season was scheduled to begin production in August but will be unable to do so, which means that the season will be unlikely to meet its planned spring 2021 launch date.
Landscapers (HBO)
Production on the Olivia Colman-starring miniseries has been delayed to early 2021, which should push the premiere to sometime in the 2021-22 season. A scheduling conflict caused by the delayed production means that the series will also need to replace its original director, Alexander Payne.
The Last Dance (ESPN)
Originally scheduled to air in June during the NBA playoffs, the 10-part docuseries about Michael Jordan will now debut on April 19.
Last Man Standing (Fox)
Production halted 3/15, just a few days prior to the scheduled filming of this season's final episode. Producers hope to film that episode at a later date.
Last Week Tonight With John Oliver (HBO)

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert (CBS)
Production halted effective 3/16. In the meantime, Colbert is home-recording a monologue every day and streaming it on YouTube, beginning 3/17. New full-length episodes (recorded at home) will resume on Monday 3/30. The series will shift from home to studio recording during the week of August 10.
The Late Late Show With James Corden (CBS)

Law & Order: SVU (NBC)
Production halted 3/12. The final four episodes of the season will not be filmed, leaving the 4/23 episode as the season's last.
Legacies (CW)
The current season will end early, with the 3/26 episode. It is possible that the remaining unproduced S2 episodes will air at a later date if filming can resume in the near future. (Regardless, the series will return for a third season.)
Lights Out With David Spade (Comedy Central)
Production shut down following the 3/12 episode. The show will not return to Comedy Central in any form, and is now being shopped to other networks.
Lisey's Story (Apple TV+)
Production on the upcoming miniseries (starring Julianne Moore and Clive Owen) halted on 3/13. Only a few weeks of production need to be completed, but as of late June there's still no indication that filming can resume anytime soon.
Little America S2 (Apple TV+)
Production halted 3/12 prior to the start of filming on the second season.
Loki (Disney+)
Production shut down 3/14. The live-action Marvel series had been expected to debut in the spring of 2021; it is unknown if that will change.
Lord of the Rings S1/S2 (Amazon)
Production on Amazon's big-budget LOTR series was halted in New Zealand starting 3/16. Filming resumed in late September.
Los Espookys S2 (HBO)
The quirky Spanish-language series was only halfway done with filming season 2 prior to the production shutdown. It is unclear when production can resume.
Love Fraud (Showtime)
The already filmed docuseries was previously scheduled to debut May 8, but will now launch on August 30.
Love Island [UK version] (Hulu)
The reality hit will skip its summer and winter seasons this year due to coronavirus concerns. The next season won't air until summer 2021, though it will be a longer season than normal.
Love Island [US version] (CBS)
The reality show will use a Las Vegas hotel to film its second season this summer. Episodes will begin airing on August 24.
Lucifer S5 (Netflix)
Production on the show's final season halted 3/13, just as producers were in talks to extend the series by another season. Production is expected to resume in late September.
Magnolia Network
The new cable network (replacing DIY) from HGTV regulars Chip and Joanna Gaines will no longer launch on October 4. The network will now launch sometime in 2021.
Magnum P.I. S3 (CBS)
The series did not meet its original mid-August production start date, and is now expected to begin filming in mid-September. A late 2020 premiere is not impossible, though an early 2021 start to the season seems likelier.
The Mandalorian S2 (Disney+)
Unaffected. Unlike other upcoming Disney+ shows, filming of the upcoming second season of The Mandalorian wrapped in early March prior to the shutdown, and the season will debut this fall as planned.
Manifest (NBC)
The next season has been delayed from fall 2020 to sometime in 2021.
Masters Golf Tournament (CBS)
Scheduled to begin April 9, the major tournament has been postponed indefinitely until November 12.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel S4 (Prime Video)
Filming on the delayed fourth season won't begin until January 2021 at the earliest, which means the season will miss its usual November/December launch window and likely won't air until a full year later (in late 2021).
Mental Samurai (Fox)
The game show's second season will no longer debut on 4/22. It is unclear when new episodes will arrive, though reruns of the first season will continue to air on Thursday nights over the next month or two.
Modern Family (ABC)
Unaffected. The series has already completed production on its remaining episodes, including the series finale (which airs 4/8).
Mom (CBS)
The sitcom is expected to begin filming its next season the week of September 14. A normal fall launch is thus out of the question; new episodes will begin airing either very late this year or in early 2021.
The Morning Show S2 (Apple TV+)
Production on the show's second season halted 3/12 midway through work on the season's first two episodes. Filming is expected to resume in mid-October, which means that the season will debut in 2021 at the earliest.
Mr. Mayor (NBC)
Four episodes of the new Tina Fey/Ted Danson comedy series, which was intended to debut this fall, were filmed prior to the shutdown. Because filming on the remaining episodes could not restart in time, the show's debut has been pushed back to 2021.
MTV Movie & TV Awards (MTV)
The annual ceremony, which would normally be held in June, has been indefinitely postponed, though it may be held later in 2020. Update 11/12: This year's ceremony will not be held; instead, the network will honor the best entertainment of the past 40 years in a "Greatest of All Time" ceremony to air on December 6.
MTV VMAs (MTV)
The network is exploring holding its 2020 ceremony in Brooklyn on August 30th, though backup plans are also being formulated should that not be possible.
Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet S2 (Apple TV+)

Nancy Drew (CW)
Production halted 3/12. The next season is expected to debut in January, assuming that production can begin in September or October as planned.
NCAA March Madness Tournament (TBS/CBS)
Like all college sporting events this spring, the men's basketball tournament has been canceled and will not be rescheduled.
NCIS / NCIS: Los Angeles / NCIS: New Orleans (CBS)
Production halted 3/12. Both NCIS and NCIS:LA are tentatively scheduled to resume production in early September for their upcoming seasons. NCIS: New Orleans will get a later September start. It is still possible that some or all of the three shows could air new episodes before year's end, though an early 2021 start is another possibility.
The Neighborhood (CBS)
Production halted 3/15, just two days prior to the scheduled filming of the second season's final episode. That episode will not be produced. Season 3 is expected to begin filming in late September, but the first new episode won't air until sometime in 2021.
The Nevers (HBO)
Joss Whedon's return to TV was forced to take a pause in filming its debut season in March, but production resumed in the fall and filming is now reportedly complete, which should allow the series to debut in 2021.
neXt (Fox)
A full season of the John Slattery-led, typographically challenged drama series, previously announced for the 2019-20 season, is in the can. But Fox will now delay its premiere until the fall, when the network will have a greater need for new content.
New Amsterdam (NBC)
Production halted 3/12. A few remaining episodes will not be filmed, and one already filmed episode (about a flu pandemic) has been pulled from the schedule, leaving the April 14 episode as the final new hour of the season. The next season has been delayed from fall 2020 to sometime in 2021.
NFL Draft (ABC/ESPN)
The draft will be closed to the public but will still air on television from April 23-25.

NOS4A2 S2 (AMC)
Originally set to debut June 1st, the second season premiere has been pushed back to 6/21.
One Day at a Time (Pop)
After briefly attempting to film audience-free, producers halted production on the 4th season (and first since the sitcom's move from Netflix) during the week of 3/16, leaving seven episodes unfilmed. Producers are experimenting by turning one of those seven into an animated special, which will air sometime this spring (after the midseason finale).
The Orville S3 (Hulu)
The former Fox show halted production on 3/15 after shooting just a small part of the new season. Filming has yet to resume as of late September, which makes a 2020 debut unlikely.
Outcry (Showtime)
The already filmed docuseries was previously scheduled to debut April 3rd, but will now air later in 2020 (presumably when the network runs out of other new programs to air).
Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj (Netflix)
The show will no longer return with new episodes on March 29. A new return date has not been set.
Peacock streaming launch
Comcast confirmed that its new streaming service will stick to its original launch plans, which involve a gradual rollout to Comcast customers between April 15-30 and a public launch on July 15, though the company is working to accelerate the latter date. However, almost all of Peacock's original programming will be delayed to next year. The only original programs that will be available this month are two animated children's shows.
Peaky Blinders S6 (Netflix)
Production halted 3/16.
Pennyworth S2 (Epix)
Production halted 3/13. Because of the delays, season 2 will now be split in two parts, with four episodes airing in late 2020 and the remaining six not arriving until sometime in 2021.
Pilot season in general
Production on all network pilots has been suspended. It is believed that only one pilot, Chuck Lorre's CBS sitcom project B Positive, had completed filming prior to the shutdown. It appears unlikely that any of the broadcast networks, who have already canceled their in-person upfront presentations, will be able to announce their new show pickups at the usual time in mid-May.
Pose S3 (FX)
Production halted 3/14. Filming on season 3 could resume in October, but even if it does, you'll have to wait until 2021 to watch the new episodes.
Power Book II: Ghost and Power Book III: Raising Kanan (Starz)
The two Power spinoffs have halted production for at least one week starting on 3/13. Writing was already completed on both new series, and Ghost is still expected to launch in September.
Punky Brewster (Peacock)
Peacock's reboot of the 1980s series has been delayed to 2021 (or possibly late 2020 if production can resume this summer).
Queen of the South S5 (USA)
Production halted 3/14.
Queen Sugar S5 (OWN)
Production halted 3/13.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony (HBO)
The annual ceremony, which typically is telecast in May, has been postponed to November 7.
RuPaul's Drag Race (VH1)
The series entered production for its 13th season in early September, which suggests that the new season could arrive in its normal late winter/early spring launch window.
Russian Doll S2 (Netflix)
Production halted 3/12 prior to the start of filming. No premiere date had been announced.
Rutherford Falls (Peacock)
Production on the Ed Helms comedy postponed on 3/12 prior to the start of filming. Filming is underway in the fall, which means that the series will not debut until sometime in early 2021.
Saved by the Bell (Peacock)
Peacock's reboot of the 1990s series has been delayed to 2021 (or possibly late 2020 if production can resume this summer).
Saturday Night Live (NBC)
The show is in the midst of a previously scheduled break, but announced on 3/16 that it will also postpone its next three episodes (at a minimum), beginning with the 3/28 episode. The season has five episodes remaining. A partial new episode will air on April 11, consisting of a new Weekend Update and other new home-recorded material. Two more home-recorded episodes followed, including a May 9 episode that will serve as an early season finale.
Schooled (ABC)
Production halted 3/14 with only one episode left to film this season. It is unclear if that episode will be taped at a later date.
SEAL Team (CBS)
Production halted 3/13. Filming of season 4 is expected to begin in mid September, which would allow for a late 2020 (or early 2021) season debut.
See S2 (Apple TV+)
Production on the show's second season halted 3/13.
Sex Education S3 (Netflix)
Plans to film the third season in May had to be scrapped, but production was able to get started on September 9. The result will likely be a multi-month delay to the season's launch, which was expected in early 2021.

Production on the upcoming Mike Vogel/Sarah Shahi dramedy series halted 3/13.
Servant S2 (Apple TV+)
Production on the show's second season halted 3/13.

Production halted 3/13.

So You Think You Can Dance (Fox)
Fox has canceled the show, which was unable to film its 17th season this spring as originally planned. The network could revive the series in a future year, but it's not guaranteed.
Soulmates (AMC)
The episodic sci-fi anthology series was originally set to air this summer, but will now be pushed back until sometime this fall.
The Soup (E!)
On hiatus beginning the week of 3/16.
untitled Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi series (Disney+)
The Ewan McGregor-starring series is now scheduled to begin filming in March 2021, which means the show will not debut until the 2021-22 season (likely in 2022).
Strahan, Sara and Keke (ABC)
Will cease airing after 3/17 until further notice.
Stranger Things S4 (Netflix)
Production on the upcoming 4th season halted beginning 3/16, with the pause coming just as filming was about to commence. Production remains shut down in mid-August, though filming resumed on October 1st. As a result, the season will stream in 2021 instead of this year as originally planned.
Succession S3 (HBO)
Pre-production halted 3/27, and filming on the third season has been delayed. Producers hope to begin filming the next season in December, though nothing is definite yet.
Supergirl (CW)
Production halted 3/13.
Supernatural (CW)
Production on the show's final seven series-ending episodes was halted on 3/13. The episode airing on 3/23 will be the last new episode until post-production work can be completed on five already filmed episodes and filming can commence on the final two episodes. The latter began filming on August 18, and the delayed final seven episodes will now air beginning October 8.
Superstore (NBC)
Production of the current season has been terminated after 21 episodes, pushing the season finale (episode 22) to next season.
Survivor S41/S42 (CBS)
Delayed at least one full year. Production on the next two cycles (which would normally air in fall 2020 and spring 2021) has been halted, but is currently scheduled to resume on May 19. Update 7/14: Production has been unable to restart in time, so the show will be unable to make its planned fall season debut and will not return to CBS until sometime in 2021. Update 9/12: Survivor will be unable to film its 41st season this fall as planned. Filming on seasons 41 and 42 may happen back-to-back next spring and summer (and even that is not guaranteed), but the earliest that the next new season will air is fall of 2021.
S.W.A.T. (CBS)
Production halted 3/16 with just one season 2 episode remaining unfilmed. It is unclear if that episode will be produced at a later date. But on August 4, the drama returned to production for its upcoming 4th season, making it one of the first fall shows to go before cameras. One month later, filming has continued uninterrupted, making a fall debut look likely.
The Talk (CBS)
Production halted on 3/13. Reruns will air in its place.
The Third Day (HBO)
The Jude Law/Naomie Harris miniseries was scheduled to debut on May 11 but will now be held back for the fall.
This Is Us (NBC)
The upcoming 5th season of the NBC hit will attempt to launch on November 10th (later changed to October 27th), about a month and a half later than normal. Filming is expected to resume on September 24, but any delays to that plan could force a premiere date change.
The Today Show (NBC)
Beginning 3/17, will air truncated new episodes daily from 7-9a, followed by pre-aired segments from 9a-11a.
Tokyo Summer Olympics
The July games were finally postponed on 3/24. They have been rescheduled for a year later, to begin on July 23, 2021.

Production halted 3/12. The earliest the show might return is 3/30. In the meantime, Fallon is recording a short "At Home Edition" daily and streaming it on YouTube.
The Tony Awards (CBS)
The June 7 ceremony has been delayed indefinitely. It is possible it will not be rescheduled.
Tooning Out the News (CBS All Access)

The six-episode miniseries starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant was scheduled to debut on May 10 but will now air sometime in the fall.
Uncensored (TV One)
Season 3 of the reality series was supposed to launch 4/26 but will now debut in the fall.
Van Helsing S5 (Syfy)
Likely unaffected. Production on the fifth and final season is returning to production in Canada in July and the season is expected to air this fall as originally planned.
The View (ABC)
Continues to air new episodes.
The Voice (NBC)
The singing competition will not be ready in time for its normal fall launch in September. A late fall launch is still possible, though the show may not wind up returning until 2021.
The Walking Dead S10 / S11 (AMC)
Production could not be completed on the season finale prior to the industry-wide shutdown. As a result, the finale will not air as part of the current season, and will be rescheduled as a one-off special later in 2020 on October 4. The episodes prior to the finale will air as scheduled (through April 5). Delayed production on season 11 means that it won't air this fall as is typical, but will instead arrive sometime in 2021. But there will be six extra episodes (technically, still part of S10) when it does arrive.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond (AMC)
The latest Walking Dead spinoff will no longer debut on 4/12. It has been rescheduled for October 4.
WandaVision (Disney+)
Production halted 3/14 on the live-action Marvel series. The show was previously targeting a December 2020 start date, and it is too soon to tell if that will get pushed, though as of mid-July the series is still on schedule.
Watch What Happens Live (Bravo)
Production halted 3/13. Host Andy Cohen was to begin recording new episodes from his apartment starting Sunday 3/22, but those plans were canceled on 3/20 when Cohen revealed that he tested positive for the coronavirus. But on 3/30 Cohen announced that he would begin new broadcasts that night despite his diagnosis.
The Wendy Williams Show (syndicated)
Production shut down 3/12. The show will return with new home-recorded episodes the week of 4/6.
The Wheel of Time (Amazon)
Production on the upcoming Prime Video series adaptation of Robert Jordan's fantasy novels had started but was halted on 3/13.
The Witcher S2 (Netflix)
Two-week production halt announced 3/16. Production resumed the week of August 17, and the second season is now set for a 2021 premiere, though filming was halted again in November following multiple positive covid tests.
Wynonna Earp S4 (Syfy)
Long delayed for non-cornavirus reasons, the 4th season will launch in late July. But a covid-related production shutdown means that only half the season was filmed, and the final six episodes won't go before cameras until late summer at the earliest.
The Young and the Restless (CBS)
Production halted 3/17. The last remaining new episode will air 4/23. Production resumed in July and new episodes will begin airing on August 10.
Young Sheldon (CW)
Production halted 3/13.
Younger S7 (TV Land)
Originally scheduled to film in the spring, the 7th (and now final) season should begin filming in September or October and air sometime in 2021.
Your Honor (Showtime)
The Showtime miniseries was originally targeting a 2020 debut, but a production shutdown in March toward the end of filming may make that impossible. Filming should resume in early October, however, which would allow for a December premiere date.
