Even if the series starts filming, it will take a considerably longer time than it used to take earlier. So it will be an uphill task, and they have to come up with a sustainable solution to this problem.
The worst part about the filming of series is that the fifth season is yet to be released. The filming process was about to complete, and right at the end, the lockdown measures were announced. It has delayed the fifth season too.
Now it is more of a wait and watches the situation as the filming of the fifth season will be completed only after the lockdown is over. Then it will take some time to revamp the whole system as the work is halted from the last couple of months.
