As film and TV productions worldwide have begun to shut down as a result of Coronavirus, Supernatural has suspended production until further notice. The Hollywood Reporter reported that Warner Bros. had shut down production on some of its 70 shows in production, but did not name Supernatural as one. However, crew members tied to Supernatural confirmed the suspension on social media.
With just two episodes left to film before the show ends production, it remains to be seen how this will affect the airing schedule of the show. Supernatural joins fellow Vancouver productions like The Flash and Riverdale in suspending production. A statement released by Warner Brothers stated:
“With the rapidly changing events related to COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, Warner Bros. Television Group is halting production on some of our 70+ series and pilots currently filming or about to begin. There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on any of our productions, but the health and safety of our employees, casts and crews remains our top priority. During this time, we will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control as well as local officials and public health professionals in each city where our productions are based.”
Supernatural is currently filming its 15th and final season. We will be sure to update you with more information as it becomes available.
