Chatting to Glamour, Martin said of the Mel Monroe actress: "She's such a cool person and such a good actress. She's so honest with who she is, and that shows on-screen. I think it's a huge part of why we've succeeded in bringing this relationship to the screen. I speak for myself, anyway." 

He continued: "I just have such a big amount of respect for her as a person and as a performer. You can't really fight that stuff when you genuinely dig someone. So, we're lucky. The audience is lucky. 

"It's always fun to hear what might come out of her mouth at any time," he added.

The news was shared on the show's official Instagram account just a day before the latest series landed on Netflix. Posting a screenshot of the show's cast all appearing together on a pre-production Zoom call, the caption read: "A snapshot of our amazing cast during a table read for SEASON 5. 

"Yes, you heard that right folks….We have now started production on SEASON 5!" it continued. "Also, please meet our lovely new Show-runner for S5 @patrickseansmith (pictured here.)
