Even though the writers of were given extra time to craft a new season, production on the show will be halted for nearly three weeks starting September 15. (Filming will resume October 9.) The program’s executive producer told Entertainment Weekly this creative pause was needed to perfect the ending.

“We had a couple of scripts that we weren’t happy with. We just couldn’t get this direction to work, and we found another one that we liked better, so we wound up retooling it,” Howard Gordon stated.
