Meanwhile, sources confirm to TVLine that Lucifer, which like The Flash is produced by Warner Bros., has similarly halted production as a coronavirus precautionary measure. The show was nearing the end of production on its fifth season. The work stoppage occurs as Netflix was nearing a deal to bring the show back for a sixth season.
TVLine’s up-to-date list of the series shutting down production as a result of coronavirus has been updated to include The Flash and Lucifer.
