But it is an exciting season!"Annette O'Toole was unable to film scenes for the third season of the Netflix show

Annette was notably absent from season three after the coronavirus pandemic made it impossible for her to join the rest of the cast in Vancouver.Speaking to Us Weekly shortly after season three's release, showrunner Sue Tenney explained:"We were affected by COVID like every other show, and it was impossible for Annette to come and join us up here in Vancouver. Personally, I love Hope. I love the character, so we got busy in the writers' room to see how we can keep her alive in the show, with only having limited access."

Currently, there's no news as to when season four will be released, but the news that many of the cast have now finished filming their scenes is sure to raise fans' spirits. While it's unlikely that new episodes will arrive on Netflix this year, fans should keep in mind that season three wrapped up production in December 2020 and was released in July 2021. So if all goes to plan, we could be settling down to binge-watch the new episodes in just seven-months time!
