Bash Prompt Not Prompting

For some reason this command spontaneously stopped working when running the script:


read -p "Prompt Text: " my_var


The command does not display the "Prompt Text: "


I can still provide user input but for some reason the prompt text doesn't show up.

It was working fine before and all of a sudden stopped working.


On the other hand if I run the command in the terminal it works fine.


Please help and happy 4th!

What are your OS and PyCharm version?
Do you use bash as your default shell?
