Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic impacting production in Hollywood, CBS is expected to bring back most of their shows, including shows with low ratings. Currently, it is unknown when production will resume for the shows and what kind of impact it will have when the shows air.

In relevant news, background actors are at risk of not returning to the film industry once the Coronavirus related Hollywood shutdown is lifted.

According to a new report by Deadline, background extras, whose job is to make scenes more realistic, may not return once productions start filming. Many recommendations for safety protocols during the Coronavirus pandemic were released. Nearly the common denominator among all of the recommendation lists is to get rid of large crowd scenes of background extras, or replacing extras with crew members on set. Necessarily, the new safety sets are only to have essential staff working on set.
