The Sharks are hungry for deals and Shark Tank is getting ready to film its 12th season. Episodes of this ABC series are typically filmed in Los Angeles but the new season will be filmed completely in Las Vegas due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The regular Shark investors are Barbara Corcoran Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John, and Kevin O’Leary.
“I hear the show, already in pre-production at an undisclosed location in Sin City, is employing a quarantine bubble, keeping the stars and crew within a single facility with COVID-19 safety protocols, including testing, in place. I hear a large portion of Shark Tank‘s LA-based crew members have made the trip to Las Vegas to work on the new episodes, set to begin shooting soon.”
Due to the busy schedule of the Sharks, the series typically films 22+ episodes over the course of four weeks — two weeks in June and two in September. This speedy schedule lends itself to filming an entire season in a short amount of time while in quarantine.
A premiere date for the new season has not yet been revealed by ABC but, the network plans to launch season 12 in the fall and air it on Friday nights.
