COVID-19 strikes again.
Bravo has paused production on season 2 of Family Karma after one cast member contracts COVID-19.
A source close to production tells Page Six that Bravo has “rigorous safety protocols,” including “contact tracing” in place for all of its shows.
“Production was shut down immediately as an abundance of caution,” the source added.
Filming will be shut down for about two weeks, and everyone involved with the show will need to be re-tested before returning to work.
Bravo started production on season 2 of Family Karma back in October, filming in COVID hotspot Miami, FL.
As of last Friday, Family Karma was still filming in downtown Miami. Stars Amrit Kapai, Baili Chainani, and Chainani’s daughter, Anushka Rajani, were spotted filming while dressed in Halloween costumes.
It’s unknown how soon production was halted following that filming event.
I haven’t watched Family Karma, but I’ve heard nothing but good things from the show’s fans. Bravo fans will be happy that season 2 of the show is happening because fans were concerned the network wasn’t going to renew the show for a second season.
Hopefully, the Family Karma cast member who caught COVID has a swift recovery to resume filming.
