Supergirl Suspends Production For Covid-19

Times are very uncertain right now. The Covid-19 virus also known as Coronavirus, is spreading and many who are of older age and or otherwise immune-compromised are at risk of sever health defects if not worse. David Harewood has gone on Twitter to announce that all production on Supergirl season 5 has been suspended in the wake of the growing viral threat. We at Supergirl.tv feel this is a smart and good choice. We want the best health and safety for the actors, crew, and their families. With Melissa being pregnant, she is certainly needing to be cautious.

Update??? The countdown clock was reset... April 19 for the next new episode...



I see the clock was updated to April 26, which agrees with what I read elsewhere.

Nicole Maines statements to inverse sound like the finale was close to completing filming. She indicated, "... we had a couple of more scenes to do... a couple of stragglers..." I wonder if there is enough to put the finale together in post production with what is currently in the can???

Somewhat related today the Governor of California, Gavin Newsom said schools are likely to remain closed though the rest of the school year which ends in June. Given that I doubt he’s going to lift the ban on gatherings of over 250 people anytime soon. I would not count on SDCC happening this year.

I am very confused on Supergirl's season 5 status. In some places, I have read that season 5 was cut from 22 to 20 episodes presumably to accommodate Melissa's pregnancy and start work on season 6. I also read they were just starting filming ofthe final season 5 episode when production halted. Now I read on TV Line that 21 of 22 episodes of Supergirl were completed when production shut down.


It was adjusted to 20.; TVLine is in error.

However, one shouldn't get too comfortable with a Season 5 episode total just yet, as there may be no plans to go back and film any more of the originally planned finale anyway. David Harewood is allegedly on his way to the Caribbean to work on a documentary, so he'll likely be unavailable if shooting suddenly resumes in a couple of weeks (which it probably won't, due to the expensive burden of keeping a tech crew on retainer).

Yes, I just saw the same info on Tvline :

SUPERGIRL

"Twenty-one of 22 episodes completed; production of the one remaining Season 5 episode is TBD"


Hopefully everyone on the show is well and the EP will give this site's administrator an update soon.

"I totally support this decision, 100 percent period. Their safety and well being is more important than any TV show as well. Let's hope for the best and wish the cast and people who work on these shows stay safe."

Yes, my feelings exactly!

"Thank you admins for providing a link to the World Health Organization. At this time more than ever we need to get our information from reliable sources. Getting the correct information could mean life or death, listen to the scientists."

.Yes, I agree entirely! And the Centers for Disease Control have also provided easily-accessible, scientifically accurate, and up-to-date information at their website:

Don't you just love Dr. Anthony Fauci. He's the immunologist on our Task Force. He let's you know what's happening now and what to expect later. No candy coating when he has the mike. It's going to get worse but now we are all working together on this crises. No politics blocking the hallway. And when that happens there is nothing that this country can't do.
