Sheltering-in-place for the last nine months has its pros: wearing minimal clothing, working in your bed, spending time with friends, developing new hobbies, cooking, not spending money on your commute and binge watching your favorite TV shows. Of course, that’s what we thought. 

 

When COVID case loads started to rise, all industries were affected as the government worked to contain the virus. Film production – like all industries – took a hit and many of our favorite shows had to postpone as the networks scrambled to sort COVID-safe precautions. 

 

Things are definitely still up in the air but production has slowly started to come back and a couple of TV shows are releasing air dates. Read on to see when our beloved shows will return.

 

Supernatural

Starring Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles and more, the Vancouver-based show began taping in August and began airing again October 8 with their series finale last week! 

 

Riverdale

The CW hit has been filming season 5 since September 14 and has plans to premiere early January.
