Netflix reality series ‘Terrace House’ to halt production amidst lockdown in Japan

One of Netflix’s hit reality series, Terrace House, has halted the production of its current season in Japan in accordance with the ongoing pandemic.


“For TERRACE HOUSE TOKYO 2019-2020, we have stopped shooting at the highest priority on safety and health of CAST and STAFF. I’m sorry to everyone who is looking forward to it, but we will suspend the distribution with Episode 40,” the social media platform translates from Terrace House’s official Twitter account on Monday.

The fans of the hit series, of course, made it a point to let production know what they were feeling.



“Very well done. Unfortunately I will miss you all deeply, but safety is much more important now,” this fan said––nodding for what probably was the best decision to make considering your cast and crew.

Even Lauren Tsai from Terrace House: Aloha State gets into the mix:

🙏🏻 stay safe. Love you,” says the Amerian illustrator and model.

Data shows how Japan is kind of a wildcard in the pandemic. In New York, there have been around 10,000 deaths because of COVID-19 and Japan, home to an aging population of over 120 million people, has just reported 143 deaths and 7,660 confirmed infections. Call me crazy but that’s either applaudable or very weird. Either way, if statistics have shown for this to be true, then a pat on the back for you, Japan!

“Six strangers share a fabulous house in Tokyo, looking for love while living under the same roof. With no script, what happens next is all up to them,” the streaming platform synopsis reads.

With a whopping thirty-nine episodes under its belt and the 39th episode premiering last April 6, the series is dumbfounded on when it will be resuming and most especially how the producers will be standing up from taking a huge hit from the coronavirus pandemic.
