The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has forced some TV shows to meet an early end.
Earlier this year, the global health crisis caused production on majority of TV series to shut down — and although some have resumed filming, not all shows have had the same luck.
While TV has provided a much need escape during these uncertain times, COVID-19 restrictions have made production a bit tricky. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still prohibits large in-person gatherings and encourages people to wear masks and remain six-feet apart — making filming crowd or intimate scenes significantly more difficult.
As the coronavirus continues to change Hollywood, PEOPLE has compiled an ongoing list of all the TV shows that have been canceled because of the pandemic.
PEOPLE confirmed on Monday that the Netflix original series, starring Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin and Marc Maron, had been canceled after three seasons due to the pandemic. The decision came more than a year after the show was renewed by the streaming network for a fourth and final season, which had already begun production.

“We’ve made the difficult decision not to do a fourth season of GLOW due to COVID, which makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement.
GLOW told the story of Ruth (Brie), an out-of-work actress who got her last chance at stardom through female professional wrestling in 1980s Los Angeles. It followed the trials and tribulations of a diverse group of women who threw themselves into the ring — and into the spotlight.
The ABC crime drama, which starred Cobie Smulders as a private investigator, has been canceled despite being renewed for a second season earlier this year.
The studio behind the show, ABC Signature, hopes to find it a new home, according to Deadline.

The publication reported that production delays caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic played a significant role in the show’s cancellation, and timing issues made it impossible for its second season to premiere in the fall as previously scheduled.

“We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This,” Netflix announced in August.
“We’re disappointed to have to make these decision due to circumstances created by COVID, and we are grateful to these creators, including: Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry at 21 Laps Entertainment for I Am Not Okay With This; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb and Pavlina Hatoupis for The Society; and all the writers, casts, and crews who worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world.”
