The CW's 'All American' Pauses Filming After Positive COVID-19 Test
The CW's All American will pause filming after a member of the production tested positive for COVID-19.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that a person involved with the show tested positive. The person is now quarantined, and as a precaution the show, which is produced by Warner Bros. TV and films on the studio's Burbank lot, will not film on Monday.
It's not clear whether the person who tested positive was a member of the cast or crew.
THR's sources say the All American team member was asymptomatic and their diagnosis was confirmed as a result of required, ongoing testing all Warner Bros. TV production employees receive.
All American is one of a number of CW series that have temporarily halted filming due to coronavirus-related issues. Several of the network's shows that film in Vancouver — Riverdale, Supergirl, Charmed, Nancy Drew and Legends of Tomorrow — stopped production earlier this week due to a bottleneck of testing capacity in the Canadian city. ABC's first-year drama Big Sky was also affected.
None of the CW shows are slated to premiere in the fall. The network opted to shift premieres for all of its returning scripted series — save for Supernatural, whose final episodes begin airing Oct. 8 — to early 2021. Shows initially slated for fall will likely premiere in January.
