Delay in Season 4 good?
The production of season 4 began in the beginning of this year and two episodes were completed before the lockdown. However, the pandemic has derailed the entire schedule. The writers have also completed the scripts of the nine episodes of Season 4.
According to Natalie Dyer, who plays Nancy in the movie, the delay could be a good thing.
Normally, there’s a kind of ‘writing as we’re going,’ but it seems they’ve had enough time. I think it’s maybe been a blessing for the writers, in some way, because they had the time to just sit down, think and create.
The show is set to continue production in September. So the fans will have to wait till next year or early 2022 to watch Season 4.
