- COVID-19 changed our plans, but I always thought about how to complete the Shelby story with a full-length film, explained director Stephen Knight. - Due to the coronavirus, the shooting of the sixth season had to be postponed, which is why the seventh had to be canceled. However, the feature-length film, which will be released after the end of the series, will provide an opportunity to create a number of television offshoots of the universe.
