Previously, the upcoming Marvel/Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier had a planned Puerto Rico shoot cancelled due to the recent 6.4 magnitude earthquake. Now, the production on the series has halted due to the coronavirus outbreak affecting Prague.

While much of the show, like many MCU films, was being filmed in Pinewood Atlanta, the production was scheduled to spend a week in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. But in view of that city closing down schools, cancelling events, and restricting travel due to fears of the coronavirus, Disney decided to pull the plug on the brief shoot. The studio called everyone home to Atlanta, with no further plans on whether they’ll keep shooting in Prague, restage the sequences in Atlanta, or some other contingency.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as their long-running MCU characters. It also features Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), and Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo) reprising their MCU roles, and Wyatt Russell and Carl Lumbly playing new ones. The show is written by Derek Kolstad (John Wick), Michael Kastelein (Truth Be Told), and Malcolm Spellman (Empire), with direction from Kari Skogland (The Punisher). Kevin Feige serves as executive producer, alongside Spellman and Zoie Nagelhout (Black Panther). The series is set to debut in August on Disney+.

 Anthony Mackie is currently appearing in season 2 of Altered Carbon.
