Netflix is halting all production on all scripted series in the U.S. and Canada, due to the concerns of further spreading the coronavirus, Forbes reported.

According to Forbes, the decision to halt production will not only affect those who work on set—from actors and directors to set designers and craft service workers—but also consumers.

Deadline reported that Netflix’s productions filming outside of North America, like breakout new series The Witcher, which is prepping Season 2, are being assessed on a case by case basis.
