Actress Elisabeth Moss has taken to Instagram to confirm that production has come to a halt on the fourth season of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’.

Following on from the likes of ‘Peaky Blinders’, ‘The Witcher’ and the new ‘Batman’ movie, the cast and crew have been sent home for the foreseeable future due to the spread of the coronavirus. The worldwide pandemic has wreaked havoc with productions and scheduled releases.

"We shut down production of season 4 in order to preserve the health and safety of our cast and crew and join the world in an attempt to flatten the curve," Moss wrote.

"This show is my life and this cast and crew is my family. Nothing is more important than making sure they and everyone around them is safe.

"We hope to be back in production as soon as it's safe to do so," she concluded. "In the meantime stay safe and healthy and take care of yourselves. So much love from our family to yours."

Moss was due to make her directorial debut during this season. It’s impossible to say when or even if the cast and crew will return to set on this, or any other production. Let’s watch this space.
