Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Coronation Street’s schedule has changed to 3 days per week: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, as a result of ITV’s reduced transmission schedule.
ITV has made the decision to suspend production of Coronation Street for the time being to ensure the health and well-being of the production team, actors, crew, and their families. This change in schedule will ensure that new episodes should keep coming until at least the early summer.
Thanks for your patience in this difficult time.
