The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the entertainment industry to a standstill. Now, according to the latest reports, Netflix US and Netflix Canada have suspended the shoots of all their scripted TV shows and movies. This move comes after several movie releases have been postponed to ensure the safety of the audience and avoid large gatherings to curb the spread of COVID-19.
The global entertainment industry is facing major losses due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Movies like No Time to Die and Mulan have already postponed their releases. Shootings of many films have also been suspended temporarily to avoid the spread of Coronavirus.
Now, the latest entity to join this league is none other than streaming giant Netflix. According to a media portal’s report, Netflix US and Netflix Canada have stopped the production of all its scripted TV shows and movies for at least two weeks due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The report further states that the streaming giant has taken this step due to government restrictions with regards to the pandemic. A few days ago, it was reported that Netflix had suspended the production of Riverdale after a crew member came in contact with a Coronavirus patient.
On Friday, even Walt Disney and Universal Pictures postponed the release of their highly anticipated films. These movies are none other Fast and Furious 9 and Mulan. Walt Disney’s Mulan even had a red carpet and was set to release on March 27 as planned. But due to the restrictions put in place by the US authorities, the film will now be releasing in April.
Universal Pictures has gone one step further. Fast and Furious 9 was scheduled to release on May 22. But now, the film’s release has been pushed by a year. Now, F9 will be releasing on April 2, 2021.
