Let's Dance 2019

Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in Sweden, TV4 decided that a number of the season's episodes would be filmed without an audience.[3] On 17 March, TV4 announced that because of restrictions as a result of the pandemic, actress Siw Malmkvist would not be participating in this season.[4][5] Because celebrity dancer Anders Jansson was suffering from a cold, the second episode of the show was cancelled; the show will feature live performances from several Swedish singers instead.[6] During the second episode, Dr. Mikael Sandström revealed he would not continue dancing this season. Instead, he will focus on his duties as a doctor during the pandemic.[7] Because of the ongoing illnesses of one dancer and several crew members, the show paused for two weeks, but returned on 17 April.[8] Restrictions meant that Anders Jansson could not take part in the 17 April episode.[9] On 20 April, Jansson announced that he was pulling out of the show because of his illness.[10]
