The Flash and Lucifer are the latest series hitting the pause button on their respective seasons due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As first reported by Deadline (and confirmed by TVLine), Flash unit manager Brent Crowell announced that the Vancouver-based CW drama would cease production on its current sixth season “until further notice” in a note to the cast and crew. It is effective immediately.

Meanwhile, sources confirm to TVLine that Lucifer, which like The Flash is produced by Warner Bros., has similarly halted production as a coronavirus precautionary measure. The show was nearing the end of production on its fifth season. The work stoppage occurs as Netflix was nearing a deal to bring the show back for a sixth season.

TVLine’s up-to-date list of the series shutting down production as a result of coronavirus has been updated to include The Flash and Lucifer.
