CW’s The Flash halts production on new episodes due to coronavirus concerns – The Sun

FILMING on The CW’s The Flash has been shut down over coronavirus concerns.

There have not been any cases reported relating to the show, but production on season 6 has been halted out of a sense of caution amid the pandemic.

According to Deadline, the superhero show’s unit manager, Brent Crowell, sent a note to the Flash cast and crew to let them know that production has been suspended “until further notice.”

It goes into effect starting today, and everyone’s been told not to come to work.

The show films in Vancouver, which is also where fellow CW series, Riverdale, shoots its episodes.

The Archie Comics drama stopped its own production a couple of days ago after a crew member was suspected of having been in contact with coronavirus.


 

After filming was put on delay, The Flash star Candice Patton called out on Instagram for all shows to do the same.

Now, her ask has been answered for both her series, as well as so many others.

Shows like Grey’s Anatomy, The Morning Show, NCIS and more have all been put on hold during the current COVID-19 outbreak.

The CW has not yet revealed how, or if, the shutdown of production will affect the release schedule for upcoming Flash episodes.

As of now, the next broadcast — season 6, episode 15 — is still expected to air on Tuesday at 8 p.m.
