The hits just keep on coming. Amidst concerns surrounding the coronavirus, Apple’s The Morning Show Season 2 has joined the growing number list of shows to halt production, according to The Hollywood Reporter. None of the cast of the second season has been sick, or tested positive, so the shutdown is likely just a precaution.

“In concert with our dedicated partners at Apple, we have concluded it would be prudent to take a two-week hiatus to assess the situation and ensure the safety of the incredible people who make this show,” said producer Michael Ellenberg, founder and CEO of MediaRes.
