Alexandra Breckenridge, who plays Mel Monroe in the series, reposted Ben's Instagram Story, writing: "Is this for real?"

The message comes amid news that filming for the fifth season of the show has been delayed. Chatting on her Instagram Stories earlier this month, Alexandra gave a disappointing update: "We were supposed to start [filming] in March, but it was pushed so... I don't know. I don't know man," she said.

"I'm hoping that maybe we'll start in the summer. It would be nice to film in Vancouver in the summer rather than the winter."

Fans shouldn't be too disappointed with the news, however, as we are still waiting for season four of the drama to land on Netflix - and it seems as though we might not have to wait too long.

Posting to his Instagram page this week, Martin Henderson, who plays Jack Sheridan in the series, shared a snap of himself recording a voice over for the latest series. He captioned the image: "Back at work…getting season four good and ready for consumption."
