The coronavirus continues to have devastating effects on Hollywood, with numerous movie and TV shows being delayed as production gets suspended and cinemas are closed down. Though things are moving at an increasingly fast pace, we've attempted to bring together a comprehensive – and updating – list of all the movies and shows delayed due to coronavirus.

A quick timeline of events: No Time to Die was the first movie to be officially delayed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, with the 25th James Bond movie's release being pushed back from April to November 12, 2020 in the UK and November 25 elsewhere, including the US.

Fast and Furious 9 was then delayed an entire year to April 2, 2021 from its original May slot. A Quiet Place Part 2 and Mulan – both set to release in March – have been pulled from the schedules completely, their fate (and release dates) left unresolved. Similarly, New Mutants and Antlers have also been delayed indefinitely.

Elsewhere, Peter Rabbit 2 has been delayed from Easter until August 7, while Kumail Nanjiani-starring rom-com, The Lovebirds, which was due in cinemas on April 3, will now be released on Netflix at an unknown date. Black Widow, which was the last major release still standing over the next three months, has also been put on hold.

Looking further ahead, Spiral, the Saw quasi-sequel starring Chris Rock, was due out on May 15 and has now been wiped off the calendar. Wonder Woman 1984, the musical In The Heights, and Scoob have all also been delayed. Wonder Woman will now come in August, while the other two Warner Bros. movies do not yet have release dates.

Sony has also delayed a bunch of release dates, including Morbius (to March 19, 2021), Ghostbusters: Afterlife (to March 5, 2021), and the Uncharted movie adaptation (to October 8, 2021). 

Then, of course, there are those movies currently in production that have also been affected. The Batman, Mission: Impossible 7, Jurassic World: Dominion, and several Disney movies, including the live-action Little Mermaid, and Shang-Chi are all on hiatus. The Matrix 4, which was shooting in San Francisco and has likewise halted production. Pre-production on the seemingly cursed Uncharted movie has also been delayed, while James Cameron has shut down production on all four Avatar sequels in New Zealand. 

On the television side of things, multiple productions have outright stopped filming. These include The Witcher season 2, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision. Warner Bros. has also halted all of their television projects, which include The Flash and Batwoman, while every Apple TV original is also taking a short break. Meanwhile, The Walking Dead will no longer air its season 10 finale as scheduled as post-production has not been completed. Star Trek Discovery season 3 has also been hit during the final stages of post-production.
