Another legacy broadcast reality series, ABC’s Shark Tank, is heading back to production after a coronavirus-related shutdown.

The popular unscripted show, which traditionally shoots on the Sony lot in Culver City, Calif., will film its upcoming 12th season in Las Vegas. The show, already in pre-production at an undisclosed location there, is employing a quarantine bubble, keeping the stars and crew within a single facility with COVID-19 safety protocols, including testing, in place.

Shark Tank joins another broadcast reality series, CBS’ Love Island, which also recently relocated to Las Vegas to shoot its upcoming second season.
