After a rocky run, it seems that Oscar season is finally coming together for Lincoln.
Lincoln has become a household name thanks to its incredible acting talent, but its star won’t be around for the awards ceremony on Sunday.
In fact, it will not be at all.
The show is currently on hiatus for the time being, but the cast is already in town, and the show is back in production, so its definitely back on.
“It’s been a long hiatus,” show creator Mike W. Barr told the New York Times.
“We’ve been doing a lot of filming, but this is a very long time.”
The hiatus was partly due to the cast being on a mission to film in a new location, which made it harder to shoot and produce.
But its also due to some major logistics: the show was originally supposed to air on Lincoln in the fall, but that was cancelled when it became apparent that the production was being rushed.
It was later announced that the show would air on The CW in January 2019.
The delay has also put a strain on Lincoln’s cast.
“The show is going to have to do a lot more filming to get its characters back together,” actor Robert Morse told the Times.
“[Director Michael] W. Johnson and I have been working on that since we left the show, and we’re going to continue to work on it.”
The actors are hoping to get back to the production as soon as possible.
But they’re not done yet.
In the meantime, the show’s crew has started up a crowdfunding page to help pay for new equipment.
“For the past three months, we have been doing some of the most arduous, difficult work we’ve ever done,” producer David Thomas told the paper.
“I have to say, it was a beautiful experience working on this show, especially the writing and the directing.
It has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.”
