The Netflix show‘s stunt coordinator, Hiro Koda, admitted that the new social distancing guidelines will make filming challenging.
“As far as social distancing, we can separate ourselves and work in and out of set in waves, instead of everybody on set at once,” Koda told ComicBook.com. “That’s easier to control.”
“Everybody can wear masks and gloves and whatever, but the actors can’t, they have to take the masks off,” he added. “They’ve got to be in close contact.”
And as far as what fans can expect for the upcoming season of this sci-fi thriller, Koda said “it’s going to be epic.”

“All I can tell you is that season four is… It’s darker,” the coordinator shared. “It’s going to be epic. There’s lots of great surprises and all your favorite people are in it.”
“It’s going to be so good,” he added. It’s so epic. I’ve gotten to read through almost eight scripts now, so it’s pretty awesome. I don’t know how many we’re going to get.”
