The fourth season of Amazon Prime Video’s award-winning show 'The Marvelous Mrs Maisel', which spans the life of a Jewish housewife – Miriam Midge Maisel, is not likely to be aired anytime soon.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Mrs Maisel is in limbo at the moment with regards to starting production. However, the makers of the show -- Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino -- have said they will start filming for season four as soon as it is safe.
Commenting on the delay in production, the couple said: “King COVID is the showrunner right now.”
The show that has bagged several Emmys over the years is looking forward to the upcoming season of the awards, but the showrunners are certain things will be different this year. How? As Sherman Palladino says: “I am enjoying everyone pretending like people are going to get dressed up and bother to shave their legs when they are going to be sitting in their kitchen.”
The couple added, even a nice postcard would be welcome at the moment or a "10 percent off on a pizza!"
Frequently Asked Questions
A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.
There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.
Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.
The showrunners then went on to discuss the filming of season four of their hit 'The Marvelous Mrs Maisel' and said starting production work right now seems daunting. They added: “It remains to be seen whether productions are going to be fully running before there is a vaccine.”The Palladinos said they are scared to death about the COVID-19 situation and that everyone is kind of in the same boat. They asserted that they “know what happens in season four — we could write it,” only there is no telling when they could begin producing these things.
