“Miles Teller is not vaccinated. He wouldn't even get the test,” a source dished to DailyMail, adding: “Now he's brought the virus to the set and the whole set had to shut down.”

Production on the limited series was shut down last week. “Out of an abundance of caution, we have temporarily halted production on The Offer due to the return of a positive coronavirus test result during routine testing,” a spokesperson told Deadline on Sunday, August 29.
