However, Martin's co-star Alexandra Breckenridge recently shared some disappointing news regarding the filming of season five. Speaking in an Instagram Live she revealed that production for season five has been pushed back indefinitely for unknown reasons. "We were supposed to start [filming season five] in March, but it was pushed so… I don't know.

"I don't know man. I'm hoping that maybe we'll start in the summer. It would be nice to film in Vancouver in the summer rather than the winter." However, it's not all bad news because season four is on the way and due to be released onto the streaming platform in sometime in 2022.
