Hulu announced in mid-March that filming on the fourth season of The Handmaid’s Tale would be put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And in an interview with TV show Extra on Thursday, Elisabeth Moss explained that the production team is trying to figure out a time frame for resuming.

‘We were only two weeks in, so we actually have an entire season to shoot,’ said the actress who also serves a producer on the award-winning series.

Not rushing into it: Elisabeth Moss said Thursday that while everyone wants to get back to work filming season 4 of The Handmaid's Tale, production won't restart until it's safe to do so

She explained: ‘We want to go back to work because families have people to support and rent they need to pay, but at the same time no human’s life is worth a TV show. We’re just trying to figure out how to do it safely for everybody.’

Moss, 37, is set to make her directorial debut with an episode in the new season.

Meanwhile, she will next be seen in the horror movie Shirley that’s set to be released on Hulu, on video-on-demand and at drive-ins.
