The 40-year-old, who plays Mel Monroe, told New Beauty: "I think this season has started out well and we're getting into a few episodes soon that are pretty heavy."

"They're really intense and I think that they're some of the best episodes we've ever done," she continued.

"I never say that either! I think that there's a high sense of drama that starts to come up this season that it's going to leave people on the edge of their seats. At least, I hope. I'm excited to get into that."


Hope was largely absent for season three

While fans eagerly wait for the new episodes, they may be wondering how many more seasons of the romance drama they can expect to land on Netflix. Back in September 2021, Netflix announced that it had renewed the show for two more seasons, meaning the show has only been commissioned up until season five so far.

The good news is that there are more than 20 books in the novel series upon which the series is based, which means there is plenty of material for more seasons should Netflix renew it.
