'NCIS' & 'Chicago Fire' Also Pause Production Over Positive COVID-19 Cases

Via Deadline, a report suggests that the NCIS flagship has pressed pause on filming due to a positive test in Zone A, which includes the cast and those interacting with them.

The outlet reports that the case does involve one of the cast members. The crossover with NCIS: Hawai’i is still moving forward.

As for NCIS: Los Angeles, production on the series won’t start up again until February. Apparently, this was done out of precaution amid the surge of Omicron variant cases. Fans shouldn’t worry though, the show has “enough episodes in the bank to afford a long break without affecting the season’s run on the network.”

NBC has also announced that production on Chicago Fire has been halted due to a positive COVID-19 test from one of the series regular stars.

Deadline says that the show picked up production and just filmed new stuff yesterday (January 4) before cast and crew were notified today of the shutdown. Immediate contact tracing was implemented per the guidelines set by state/county and in the NBCU Production Playbook.

These aren’t the only shows to press pause amid the surge – these ABC shows did too.
