‘Love & Hip Hop’ Franchise Allegedly Shut Down Indefinitely Due To Coronavirus Pandemic
Production on all four series of the “Love & Hip Hop” franchise has reportedly been stopped indefinitely as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The status of the VH1 franchise remains uncertain, as the show has allegedly halted production, like many other production companies and networks. According to OMFG Reality TV, no new episodes of the Hollywood, New York, Atlanta, or Miami series in the Love & Hip Hop franchises will be airing from this point forward. The statement reads,
“Due to the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic, all production on the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ franchise series has been forcibly shut down. This means that ‘Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood’ season 7, the remaining episodes of ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York’ season 10 and ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ season 9 will all be postponed until further notice,” the message continues. “This also applies to ‘Love & Hip Hop: Miami’ season 4. It’s still uncertain when and how production will resume.”
Before the pandemic, the tenth season of Love & Hip Hop: New York premiered on December 16th, 2019, the most recent episode of the season airing on March 9th, 2020. Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta‘s ninth season premiered on March 16th, but it looks like the show will be halted in the middle of the season as production is reportedly shutting down.
The cast of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta began filming confessionals from their homes before news of production allegedly being shut down.
Although Love & Hip Hop: Miami already wrapped up its third season on April 6th, it is unknown whether the cast has filmed new episodes for a fourth season. As for Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, its seventh season was expected to air sometime this year, but now, that remains uncertain as well.
The official Love & Hip Hop production team has yet to address this report.
