Apple TV+‘s “The Morning Show
” was three and a half weeks into filming when production on its second season was forced to shut down in early 2020 due the then-oncoming Covid-19 pandemic. Although more than half of the second season had already been written at that point, the writers decided to rewrite it in order to incorporate what would become the global health crisis of our time into the original storyline. This decision, of course, had a significant effect on the entire production of the season. “After Covid, they decided that everything was going to get bigger and go around the world,” says production designer Nelson Coates
