Last week Netflix already imposed the cancellation of the filming of movies and television series in North America. It was because of the safety and health measures imposed by the American country to stop the expansion of the coronavirus.
The Netflix’s series affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic include The Witcher, Stranger Things, Russian Doll, Grace and Frankie and Lucifer.
The Witcher Season 2
The Witcher, successful Netflix series based on the work of Polish master Andrzej Sapkowski has been put on hold on the production of its second season due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.
The pandemic has forced filming to stop. For now, it will be paused for at least the next two weeks. The filming was expected to close next August. However, due to this setback and without being clear that in two weeks this health crisis has escaped, it is not yet known when it will end. The release date was scheduled for early 2021. So, it is unclear whether the premiere will also be affected or not.
Stranger things Season 4
The current Coronavirus pandemic that sweeps the world has also stopped production of Stranger Things. It is being assumed that launch of the fourth season will not take place in 2020.
Filming for the fourth season of Stranger Things began in February in Lithuania. After filming abroad, production was expected to return to the United States in the Atlanta area, as well as to a studio in New Mexico.
Russian Doll Season 2
The filming of second season of Russian Doll was scheduled to march 2020. However, due to the Covid-19 breakdown, it has been postponed as it was to be filmed in New York.
For now, it’s likely that the Russian doll season second will not be in the list of 2020 releases. It would surely be premiered at the beginning of 2021.
Grace & Frankie Season 7
Filming for the seventh and final season of the Netflix comedy series Grace and Frankie has also been halted due to the pandemic. Netflix shutdown the production of the series created by Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, on 15th march.
In addition, Jane Fonda , Lily Tomlin , Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen also fall into the risk group of people possibly attacked by the virus.
Lucifer Season 5
Lucifer is one of many shows on WBTV and Netflix that had been temporarily postponed due to coronavirus.
Season 5 was near the end of production when it was suspended. It was expected that the series may release in may 2020. But it is likely that the release date will be pushed ahead and will be released in spring 2020.
