How Your Favorite Bravo TV Shows May Be Impacted By Coronavirus

Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is dominating the worldwide headlines.

Netflix has canceled all production in the U.S. and Canada and the movie industry has come to a virtual halt with nothing new being released for months.

What hasn’t been as commonly discussed, however, is the impact that Coronavirus will have on the reality TV industry. Other than ABC suspending production on The Bachelorette and Amazing Race hitting pause on production over on CBS, the cable networks have been left out of the conversation.

We’ve compiled a list of all Bravo TV shows that are currently airing, upcoming, and TBD, and what their current status is due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
