    Netflix’s Dear White People becomes the latest TV show to shut down production due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests on the set

    Netflix‘s Dear White People has become the latest TV show to shut down production due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests.

    The show, entering its fourth and final season, will shut down filming for two weeks after several team members tested positive, according to Deadline

    Production was originally slated to begin this spring before it was halted by the original COVID-19 production shutdown.

    ‘Several team members of the Lionsgate television series Dear White People for Netflix have tested positive for COVID-19,’ a Lionsgate spokesman said.  

    ‘They are currently in quarantine, and other staff members have been notified,’ the statement added, though it didn’t identify who tested positive.

    ‘We are following the extensive health and safety protocols we have in place, and the series will not be shooting for the next two weeks while quarantine measures are observed,’ the statement continued.

    ‘The health and safety of our Dear White People team is our highest priority,’ the statement concluded.

    The show is based on the 2014 feature film of the same name, written and directed by Justin Simien, starring Tessa Thompson

    Simien created the series, which is set at a fictional Ivy League university, following the racial tensions that simmer under the surface.

    The series debuted to rave reviews in 2017, starring Logan Browning as Samantha White, a campus radio DJ whose show dubbed Dear White People is quite divisive.

    The show also stars Brandon P. Bell, DeRon Horton, Antoinette Robinson, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherston, 

    Netflix hasn’t announced when the final season will debut at this time, though creator Simien teased in previous interviews the new season will touch on virtue signalling and the ‘myth of meritocracy,’ while teasing a ‘big aesthetic idea’ behind the final episodes.

    Dear White People is just the latest high-profile TV series to shut down production due to positive COVID-19 tests.

    Other shows that have halted filming include Amazon’s Bosch, HBO’s The GIlded Age, ABC’s Call Your Mother, Netflix’s The Witcher and Vikings: Valhalla, NBC’s Chicago Med and Chicago Fire, Fox’s The Resident and CBS’ Young Shelfon.

    With COVID-19 spikes happening all over the country, Dear White People likely won’t be the last to shut down in the weeks and months ahead.
