Coronavirus: When Your Favorite TV and Awards Shows Are Coming Back

After more than 100 days in quarantine, all those TV shows, awards ceremonies, and events that were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic are beginning to announce their return.

Obviously, there are still a lot of questions about how these ceremonies and series will be reworked as coronavirus safety measures are put into place. Will awards ceremonies have a packed audience? Will attendees wear masks? Will there even be kissing scenes on Grey’s Anatomy anymore?

Time will tell. What we do know, at least, is when Hollywood’s powers that be plan to bring back some of your regularly scheduled content. From the Oscars to the Golden Globes to The Bachelorette, here’s when you can (tentatively) mark your calendars. 

The Bachelorette: Fall 2020

Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette is set to start filming in July, according to ABC’s vice president of alternative programming, Rob Mills. The VP described the plan to On Air With Ryan Seacrest on June 17. “For Clare’s season, which is going to come first, that’s going to shoot in about a month,” Mills said. “Everybody is going to be at one location. Everybody is going to be tested a week before. Everybody comes back negative, we shoot, and they’re inside that bubble.” 

No word yet on an official premiere date, but the series will air on Tuesdays instead of its usual Monday slot. 

The Bachelor: TBD

In that same Seacrest interview, Mills said Matt James’s season of The Bachelor will likely start shooting in September but gave no insight into a premiere date.

“We’re hoping to start on time, which will be the end of September, and we’ll see where the world is,” Mills told Seacrest. “Hopefully that’s when we would be at the Bachelor mansion. Maybe there’s some travel. Maybe it’s just domestic. Maybe it’s by bus, but we’ll see. If not, if things aren’t that safe, we’ll shoot it the same way [as Clare’s] where everybody is safe. They’re tested, they’re quarantined, and then you can have kissing, arguing, and everything else.”

The Golden Globes: February 28, 2021

On June 22, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced on Twitter that the Golden Globes will take place on Sunday, February 28, 2021.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who were announced as hosts back in January 2020, are still set to lead the event. 

The Critics Choice Awards: March 7, 2021

According to a joint statement from the Critics Choice Association and The CW network, the 26th Annual Critics Choice Awards will air live on Sunday, March 7, 2021, at 7 p.m. ET. Taye Diggs will host for the third year in a row. 

“Now more than ever, people are turning to film and television as a source of comfort, as a means of education, and as a way to connect,” Critics Choice Association CEO Joey Berlin said in the statement on June 22. “With the revised timeline, we are looking forward to celebrating all of the brilliant new work created during this extended season.” 

The Oscars: April 25, 2021

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the ABC Television Network announced in a statement on June 15 that the glitzy Hollywood awards ceremony has been postponed until April 25, 2021.

“For over a century, movies have played an important role in comforting, inspiring, and entertaining us during the darkest of times. They certainly have this year,” Acadamy president David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson said in the statement. “Our hope, in extending the eligibility period and our awards date, is to provide the flexibility filmmakers need to finish and release their films without being penalized for something beyond anyone’s control. This coming Oscars and the opening of our new museum will mark a historic moment, gathering movie fans around the world to unite through cinema.”

Grey’s Anatomy: TBD

In a recent interview, Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff revealed that the writers have resumed work via Zoom; however, she could not provide details on when filming may begin and when fans can expect season 16 to air.
